In residential buildings, prefabricated wooden houses constitute minor part ofall buildings in Slovenia. The reasons pertaining to the relatively low occurrence of prefabricated wooden buildings today are assessed in the presentstudy. The Slovenian public opinion survey on wooden building 2006 examined, among other issues, public attitude towards wooden buildings and itsadvantages. Data collection was performed by CATI method. Results of publicresearch clearly indicate the users' lack of knowledge about wooden buildings. The majority of respondents living in single-family houses oppose the idea of timber-framed penthouse. More than a half of all respondents agreed that wood is suitable material for constructions, while 30% disagreed. Most of the respondents support increased government spending for ecological building. The percentages of respondents, who believe that wooden houses offerhealthier living conditions than brick-concrete buildings, are about the same. Public opinion survey presents empirical background for designing eventual wooden building promotional campaigns in future.
