comment Should building a new house include considerations about radon?
Good call on the no-basement then. Sealing your basement is like building a boat, and you have to deal with the water pressure. You need to be able to remove water, to put in a basement (or accept occasional flooding)

Great idea. I've heard it's effective for mice (and probably any other mammal), because they would get sick from the copper if they tried to eat through.

I believe they are protected in the US as well.

I'd rather not use a pesticide, is there something else that would act as a deterrent?
