Would you build your home using green lumber? You might not know how to answer that question, but it is actually very important for you to make the right decision. Green lumber is the term for wood that has dried naturally without being put through some type of process to speed it up. This causes the wood to have a higher moisture content.

Since less work is required to prepare green lumber, it is also cheaper to buy, which makes it attractive for some. The problem is that in some climates, where there is high humidity, the wood might take a very long time to dry after it has been installed. This is why you should avoid using green lumber in that type of climate.

If you choose to go ahead anyway, you can face many different issues, such as mold, popped nails coming through your drywall and cracks in between the wooden boards.
