Yes its true, somethings just don't mix well. Drinking and driving, your tongue and a frozen metal pole, and a cat in a room full of snakes. Ok , i made up the last one :).
Some great ideas at one time don't seem so great later. Wood shingled roofs are one of those. Wood doesn't go well with fire, wood actually doesn't do great even with water. The reason wooden shingles were popular is the abundance of wood, and the absence of lightweight concrete.As technology grew, so did our choices in materials. Those choices continue today..building and picking materials isn't the same. Your choices have broadened, and many are beautiful. Remember new homes aren't just pretty, they are safer and more efficient.
