Shed to office conversion but has treated lumber inside.


This shed was “paneled” on the inside with what seems like treated osb 4x8 plywood. Would this be a toxic interior if used as an office? Is there a way to encapsulate the “paneling” to stop the fumes with oil primer or would you just remove the treated lumber and replace with non treated? It’s only about 40 square feet so a little remodeling wouldn’t break the bank.

What makes you think it's pressure treated?
See any grade stamps?

There’s a weird chemical smell. It’s been there for years. My stepdad made it a playhouse for the kids many years ago. He painted it so it’s hard to tell by looking at it. Now that i think about it is osb plywood even treated??

OSB wouldn't be pressure treated. An oil primer and latex top coat should sufficiently seal the walls. .... or you could laminate over it with 1/4" drywall if you want a more finished look.
