It is a great pleasure to build houses nowadays. You know you are putting them up to stay. It is quickly done and much of the pleasure arises from the fact that you are building with a material that is well nigh indestructible, and that is cypress lumber. Cypress can be procured in any lumber market, but for greenhouse building we should be afraid to trust it, and we prefer to get our supply from firms who make a specialty of greenhouse material and have the facilities for getting out material of any dimensions you wish.

We began using cypress some eighteen years ago for bars, ridge, plate and gutter, and to this date have discovered no rot or decay in a single piece of the material.
