I personally hate building structures from wood, despite making around 40% of my living from doing so.
Wood swells, shrinks, twists, rots, molds if moisture content is above 19%, bugs eat it, ect.
The disadvantages are far far beyond the benefits.
To me wood should be nothing more than a cladding or veneer for visual pleasure.
Soft wood like we have here in Alberta Canada is almost useless. It compounds all the disadvantages.
I would rather build from metal. Hence the reason I'm building a bus, not a sticks and staples RV.
Metal will outlast any wood, and properly engineered is half the weight.
The finishes we have for metal today can last a lifetime, and never require a refinish.
Wood must be refinished continuously. Life is too short for that
However, I also will not install asphalt shingles of any kind due to them not lasting the life of the building. I install only metal cladding on roofs.( Roofing tin, metal shingles, ect.) Once installed correctly, the metal lasts a lifetime.
So, yes I like the look of wood, but nothing else about it.
