We built a cabin with pine square timbers for interior walls. I cannot tolerate the VOC chemicals in wood finishes. Can I leave my walls raw without them absorbing odors? What are the pros and cons of raw wood vs finishing the wood... THANK YOU... my lungs appreciate your input....


You can leave the interior walls bare, but they are susceptible to dust and dirt getting into the wood fiber and becoming dark. They are also hard to clean or wipe down without a finish on them. Most new latex interior stains do not have any odor to speak of.
