    Do I put any kind of sealant to protect the wood, or just paint?

    I'm thinking of a deck sealant like Thompsons water seal before anyone even moves in. I'd think any paint would do well. Any house paint that is.

    That would work too. Basically something to protect the wood so you don't have to replace it.

    I put low VO latex white on the inside floor and outside trim and red barn latex on the outside.

    Especially exposed "edges" of the wood. That's where water would do the most damage.

    Tinyhouse, I think you're a reincarnated carpenter or something. Such a pioneer woman you are. :)
