My wife and I want to get started on a 12x16 or so cabin in the Petersville area this summer and I keep changing my mid about the foundation.
I know that we have about 4' of organic material. No rocks or anything and then we hit a firm layer.
It seems I could have piles driven, or helical piers installed and they would pretty much last forever. But with two man auger auger I could put in pressure treated lumber pretty easily, but I keep thinking wood won't last as long.
At the end of the day cabin funds come from whats left over after buying groceries and I have 4 hungry kids, so cheaper will get built faster, but I want something done right when all is said and done.
So with that in mind, is there really any reason not to use pressure treated lumber?
