Found my way to a Habitat Re-store 2 hours from where I moved to.I am slowly finding things out here. While walking arund the yard I noticed a bundle of CEDAR T&G boards.(About 30)I asked the employee how much they are selling for ?He looked at me and said “All that pile is not for SALE they throw that whole pile of scrap into garbage. Some boards are not right length, some have paint on them,some are rotted.I asked if I could buy those cedar boards…..I would pay $5. for it. SURE he said…..I would have loaded the entire load if I had more time.For those of you who need cheaper , older lumber, take the TIME and check these places out.
