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
