My husband is just finishing a remodel on our home. We expanded our family room by 200 sq feet and we are detecting a strange odor in our new family room. The floors are still cement, we have primed and painted our walls and cabinets arrive in four days. However — there is a distinct odor in this brand new room (the previous family room was totally removed and everything in this new room is just that, brand new). The odor smells like cat urine — but we have no cat, no cats have been in the house and we cant figure out where this smell is coming from. One day is seems to be on the wall, the next day it doesnt. It gets worse when its warm. We have wood beams running across the top of the room made from douglas fir that have been stained and sealed — but the beams dont smell like cat pee.
My husband is a general contractor and he did most of the work himself and supervised what he didnt do so I know things were done correctly.. and we’ve gone over every material in the room and we cant figure out what on earth is causing this smell.
Any ideas!? Its driving me nuts.
Thanks in advance.
