Stuff gets puzzling when money and time aren't factored in the things we do. We just don't have the money right now
to hire a professional to fumigate. (quotes are $1,000+) I'll be treating the studs because now that I see the termites, I just can't put drywall over them and let it go. (the termites seem to be localized to certain exterior wall) Treating the wood is inexpensive, fairly easy and I know it will work on the structure that's treated. Maybe a year or two from know when we have the money we'll hire someone to fumigate the whole house. But until then, we have two rooms to finish and bills to pay.
Any advice on dry time would be appreciated.
