My husband and I have been planning our log home for over two years now, reading numerous books, articles, speaking with lots of people, etc., and your book is by far the best we have read.

We used this product on our house. It's GreenGuard certified, resists mold, mildew, termites, has a Class A fire rating and is non-toxic. It adds approximately one dollar per square foot to the construction cost. If it's $150 per sq. ft. to build, it would be $151 per sq. ft. Worth the peace of mind. I posted pictures on my blog. We have scrap lumber laying around the yard for the past three years. It has not changed since we purchased it, except for slight fading. It has been out in the sun, rain, snow for three years.

Very few builders know about this, or they continue to use lumber from a yard that has been sitting all winter in wet conditions. Most of this lumber has black mold. Something we learned when building, especially building green, there are so many more options out there that the building community does not know about or would rather steer you clear of. It's your house; it's worth the slight extra cost in my opinion. You can see the red sheeting in my profile post.

Years ago a friend said that boron was being tested to treat pressure-treated lumber against rot, etc. Has anyone heard or seen how it well it works?
