Absolutely i would.

In fact i plan to...

if you count bamboo as 'wood'.

Even better, though, is Bernadette's suggestion of traditional round earth houses.

Par example:
"No building system is earthquake-proof under every seismic condition, but a cob mansion in Nelson, New Zealand has survived, without a crack, two major earthquakes which destroyed the town around it. In South Yemen, in a fault zone, there are Medieval earthen houses 13 stories high. Since a cob building is one monolithic unit reinforced by straw, it has no weak straight-line mortar joints, making it stronger than brick or block."
