Dave Varro at Linda Vista Lumber Yard was extremely helpful with design & estimating a Mennonite house I was considering.

You might want to check with insurance companies, since the hurricane insurance for a wood structure might be a problem.

Self-insure your wooden house.

Jesse self insurance is fine if you have a crystal ball and can guarantee no fire/hurricane or flood damage in the next 15 years. I certainly hope that no-one censors this post.

After the hurricane damaged my house I did the same as all my neighbors... I repaired it and went on. I had the $$ saved from not paying insurance premiums.
