I used untreated 2x4's to frame my floor and my Dad said I should have used treated. Do I need to seal them? I am using untreated for everything except the 4x4 posts that will be at the ground. Also, I have a piece of linoleum to put down and was wondering if I could just lay it down without nailing or gluing since I'm using the deep litter method. Thanks.

My floor is untreated also, but my coop is 24" off the ground. I also only used treated for the legs/supports. I painted all exposed wood with a primer and exterior paint. If you paint, you'll be fine. I would secure the linoleum though. otherwise the edges will curl and the litter will find its way under the linoleum. I would also paint the floor (then put down the linoleum)as an added measure to protect the flooring for the waste.

Thanks, my floor is also 2 ft. off the ground so I should be good.
