    Subject: Wood policy

    I was pleased to read your network posting on Lowe's wood procurement
    policy. Do you know of anyone in the country that is working with developers
    and/or architects and designers to actually decrease our demand for
    dimensional lumber? This may sound un-American, but my "street of dreams"
    does not include a 3500 square foot home with 30-foot ceilings for every
    family of 4. Has anyone suggested a "street of sustainability"?

    -- In the Portland Metro region we have a regular (maybe annual) display
    called the "Street of Dreams". It is a pay-per-view demonstration of half a
    dozen single-family houses that range in size from 4000 to 6000 square feet.
    That display of opulence with the less-than-pleasing title is the source of
    my sarcasm.
