My house was built in 1918. It is a 'Sears Catalog House" That is right. You would order the house from the Sears catalog and the parts would be delivered. Possibly because wood doesn't weigh as much? Many, Many Sears Catalog homes were built in the US.

Why are majority of American homes made from wood and majority of Australian homes made from brick?

In the south where the soil is clay there are a lot of brick homes. In the southwest there are still Adobe houses and in the north with the old forests there are houses made of wood.
All of New York city is brick concrete and stone.
What gave you the idea they're all wood? Now many are to be sure. My own is a combination of wood and brick and so far has lasted 101 years.
