Re: partition walls without pressure treated wood
Be aware that your building inspector is doing you a favor by offering you the "treat the bottom plates with a wood sealer" alternative. Most inspectors wouldn't do that because they know the applied preservative probably isn't reaching the bottom where rot begins.
That said, simply go to your local home improvement or paint supply store, describe your situation and ask them for a good, and reasonably odor free, wood preservative and count your lucky stars.
