Lots of wood was available both for burning and for building. Check out
the wait times in Genesis 8 - The flood proper lasted roughly only half
a year. The arc rested on the mountains for two to three months before
Noah even opened the window to let the raven out. It was one year less a
month between Noah's going into the arc and their coming out onto dry

Here on Canada's "wet coast" we regularly float logs, even in salt
water, for longer than that and then take them to sawmills. Even logs
that have floated free for so long that they have become water logged
and are now deadheads are not at all rotten. Hit a deadhead with a
powerboat and you'll see just how rotten the deadhead isn't.

And... just how high up the mountains do olive trees grow? The dove
brought back a leaf - not a piece of rotten wood.

Granted, my Hebrew is only as good as my Mandarin or Greek which is nil
- OK, I'm only somewhat proficient in both of Canada's official
languages - so I cannot vouch for the accuracy of translations of
numbers and species from the original - still, some grains of thought
for our joint gristmill.
