Finish will not protect wood in a flood. Don’t believe me? Throw your dining table in the pond and see what happens :-D

Wood has to be pressure treated or of a species resistant to rot in order to achieve what you want.

Brings up a point my brother built a beach house many years ago and code required all the inside framing to be pressure treated up the the second story.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
