I don't consider having the house painted every 7-10 years to be a PITA. That is with wood siding. I've also had a house with vinyl siding that never needs painting. My house in Alabama had concrete siding which can go 15 years or so between painting. It needs to be repainted due to UV damage not water.

What do you recommend we use instead of wood framing? The vast majority of houses I see in Latin America are concrete and brick (With no insulation). They are also to be painted and need to be repainted periodically.

Before the finish skim coat and paint:
