In the expansion there's a weird building: only one wood needed to build it for 3 VP.. its picture looks like a loo. Am I missing something or it's only a very cheap (and weak) building?

Are you talking about the building with one wood in the upper right and 3 wood across the bottom (worth 3VP in the upper left)? If so, this building costs 3 wood to build and is only worth 3VPs. However the symbol in the upper right tells you that if you build this building you receive one wood from supply for free each turn thereafter. There is a similar brick building.

If it isn't this building, then a misprint that should be this building perhaps?

The building the original poster refers to seems to be a 1 wood 3 point loo all right, marked with the expansion leaf mark, no wood-per-turn. The followup talks about another of the "old expansion" reprint tiles.

I agree with you.
Anyway here it is a picture of this building:


I think it's useful in the final score someway if you have a lot of builders as it's very cheap.

What the hell is a LOO??? It looks like an outhouse to me.

Anyway it is just a cheap 3VP building that cost only one wood to build. It is goood for when you are trying to build many cheap huts when you have a bunch of the hut multiplier bonus point cards.

It's also good for burning through a stack of the huts to force the game to a finish!
