Building materials are very expensive, so why wouldn’t you want to save some money where you can? While this is true, there are some savings that end up costing you in the long run. Take green lumber for example. It is lumber that hasn’t been dried in a kiln, so it still has a high moisture content. As you probably are aware, moisture in an enclosed space can spell disaster for a homeowner, so why would you build with this?
Well, some view it as being worth the savings because they live in a climate where it is dry and hot, so the moisture in the lumber shouldn’t be an issue, but the problem isn’t just the moisture, it is also the way in which it dries. Since it will shrink and crack you could look at a wall that has popped nails and cracks in it after a few years.
