All the joints in our Pods and Garden rooms are mortise and tenon jointed throughout.( if specified) For much greater strength durability and quality of build.
Dry, Larch is a good all rounder really but it probably doesn't reach the dizzy grading heights that Douglas fir does. It’s still very good for joinery or furniture work. Super for flooring and excellent as air dried external cladding , looks great with a machined profile because it has a nice machined surface.
We use Douglas fir for our Stormproof windows. That is many peoples choice for replacing the PVC windows revolution which really has not stood the test of time. Has it?
