    cheapest way to seal a lot of wood?

    I have a 128ft^3 box that needs to be sealed on the inside as it will be subject to lots of moisture and 70% humidity it's whole existance... Figured people on here might no about sealing wood so... Obivously looking to do it as cheap as possible, the inside bottom will be covered with indoor/outdoor carpet so I am sure i will need to go extra there...

    Sealing the corners? Or sealing the wood itself?

    Sealing the wood itself... so it doesn't rot out and be **** in a matter of weeks.

    the box is 4ft X 4ft X 8ft. As stated above the inside will be subject to 80*-90* temps and roughly 70% humidity at all times.

I mean if this stuff holds up for decades on the outside of a house it should last pretty decently i would think...
