Does anyone know how much it costs to build with timber in Peru? I recently visited a jungle eco-lodge in the Peruvian Amazon (Pucallpa area) and am now curious to identify a cost estimate to buildings in timber. I am working on putting a business plan together for the development of a eco-lodge. So the structures I have in mind are simple Tambo-style lodging.
I have really struggled to find any information online, probably due the fact that when you google 'timber and peru' all the search results are on illegal timber harvesting. Just to be clear, I have zero interest in pricing exotic hardwoods, or using illegal or unsustainable timber
At this point I don't even know what is considered sustainable timber in Peru, and if it widely available as a building material or not.
Has anyone built in timber, and if so, what type of timber is available for construction, and how much does it cost?
Any feedback is much appreciated
