I have a 12×20 non-insulated shed with a metal roof especially for storing my lumber. A good while back I bought a bunch of sinker cypress that was freshly milled after being underwater in the swamp for about 150 years. It had a moisture content of about 60%. I stickered it and layed it flat with a dehimidifier running. It now…about 8 months later has a moisture content around 6 to 7% and is flat and straight. A couple of the shorter boards that I stored vertically had warping.

-- If retiring is having the time to be able to do what you enjoy then I have always been retired.
