Will it rot before I do?

Why am I wrong to think that the wood on this house won't rot away or become a treat for insects? [Photo links inside]

We're relocating and really like the home attached to these pictures. My only reservation is that I don't understand how the wood exterior in direct contact with the soil, covered over in large stones, won't rot away, be eaten or burrowed through. I'd like to think there's a good reason it's nothing to worry about, but the seller didn't have an answer. The foundation is poured concrete. Thanks.
