Do people still use nails?

I've heard that builders are starting to use glue exclusively instead of
nails. I guess its a cost savings. The builder I visited last week said
there were less than 100 nails in the home that he just built. I find this
hard to believe.

I guess my first response is to ask for a link to a site with the
technology on it. I think you'll find the builder was stretching facts a
tiny bit saying he used fewer than 100 nails however.

I would love to see it?
And is it built with nominal lumber or styro-foam panels?
Very interesting.
Ferris Fiber Fasteners.....the modern nail, developed by the inventor of the
Ferris Wheel.
