Yeah, ThompsonN13 is right. It depends on where you live. I live in the Midwest. Almost all of the homes are wood. Even commercial apartment buildings. They will have concrete foundations and basements. They used to be concrete blocks. Now they are poured concrete. The bottom half of Missouri is where you start to transition to different materials due to bugs and humidity. In the north, you see more wood and the bugs die in the winter. I’m from Iowa. My mother’s family is from Minneapolis, Minnesota and my fathers’s side is from Kansas City, Kansas / Missouri.
I attached a photo of US climates. The dark and light blue area’s definitely have wood homes. In the cities, you’ll see more concrete and brick. In the suburbs you’ll see wood homes with wood, vinyl, or metal siding. The more expensive homes will have a brick exterior only for looks. (usually on the front) The brick it’s structural.
In the second photo, the blue’s and tan are definitely wood structures. I think the original people that came to territories influenced the building types. In Iowa it’s German, Irish, and English. In Minnesota it’s German, Scandinavian, and Irish. My grandfather said Germans built wood homes. I think it’s because when people came here, there were mostly trees. There’s not a lot of rocks in the Midwest. You’d have to go to rivers for that and haul them. The topsoil is great for farming. It’s not sandy or rocky.
I’ve seen some people build stucco homes here, and they frequently fail. I was thinking about putting up stucco myself and decided against it for that reason. Stucco doesn’t repel moisture. It’s good for desert or dry climates. Like more west. Concrete and block homes get very cold in the winter here. There are some but they are less common. Usually the concrete or block homes are built by do it yourself types or commercial buildings.
