Question:

why don't we build with glass, steel, timber and stone?

except the fact that glass with smash

Answer:

I'm a bit puzzled by your question since all the materials you metnioned are common building materials. I built a home in the Guadalupe mountains that was practically all glass on the outside walls and the frame was all heavy natural pine timbers joined entirely with wood joinery - no iron or steel in the frame at all. I also built a mountain home in Missouri all out of natural stone collected entirely from the home owners own land. His wife was afraid of lightning so I used steel pre-fabricated trusses in the roof, covered with steel corrugated panels (all heavily grounded of course) and gave the home a 360 overhang porch. It was a beautiful home.
