Since you’ve started “partnering” with some mills, you probably need to figure out the following:

1. Your cost per board foot for each species you would offer (purchase price, transportation, storing, etc.)
2. Your cost to be in business (facilities, licenses, insurance, vehicles, advertising, etc)
2. The demand in your area
3. Amount of competition you’ll have

When you’ve figured that out, you should be able to determine if your plan is economically viable (you’ll make some money) or just a pipe dream.
