    With logs like that you should not have to by any lumber........I would start stock piling 4 and 6 inch thick slabs. Now you can still make siding out of it later, but you get a couple 1000bf of cants stock up you would then be ready to launch any project you could dream up.[/quote]


    First question, when stickering wood is wind or sun more important.....Second question, if we sticker the cants and paint the ends then mill them up in the spring how much longer will it take to dry?

    Softwoods can be used right out of the box. I would sticker them and ractet strap as a nice bundle. Cants I would sticker .(Nice and tight) Once you get it down to lumbar I wouldnt sticker at all just a nice tight bundles. Was typing early on the phone lol hope thats better! :cheese:
