Ok, this is a strange question, I think.
I did half my workshop’s interior walls with 12” rough sawn lumber from a local mill. I ran out half way through because my math sucks.
That guy warned me that he was closing down and sure enough, I can’t find him now. A quick search on CL found a few local mills.
I’d like to match as best I can, appearance-wise. I’m pretty sure he said the wood that I bought was stacked for one year to naturally dry.
One guy says he’s got some 7/8” fresh cut. I assume I’d never be able to tell that the remaining walls are 1/8” thinner, but is it smart to ship lap and mount fresh lumber on the walls? He said he could KD it for another 20 cents/bdft.
There are other places that I haven’t heard back from yet, but I wonder if any of you have an opinion on this?
