Description: The construction of new single family, multifamily, and manufactured housing is an important market for wood products in both the United States and Canada. Annual wood products consumption is dependent on many factors, including the number of new units started, the size of units started, architectural characteristics, and consumer preferences. In 2006, about 39 percent of all solid wood products consumed in the United States and 28 percent of all solid wood products consumed in Canada were used for new residential construction (Adair 2008, FAO 2008, McKeever 2009). New residential construction continues to be the leading market for solid softwood products in the United States and second only to residential repair and remodeling in Canada.
