Where to put my Indoor Air Quality

In the meantime, I am trying to get a sense for where one would get the largest positive impact. Everything I read rattles off a list of possible sources of VOC / u-f. For example...typical subflooring contains some amount and the recommendation is not to use subflooring with u-f. Subflooring is a large volume of wood with unknown outgassing characteristics (to me anyway). Something like a low VOC floor sealant will have a modest cost and therefore is a no brainer. Asking the builder to have all the subs replace all sealants, caulks, adhesives, etc. may cost more just because they don't do this. So...I was looking for some high level impressions on where to put my efforts and dollars. Clearly if we can do it all, we will. Like you said, building a simple shelf and avoiding plywood or MDF is easy, but we will of course need to balance out what is practical.
