We are happy to store your lumber for air-drying that we will be kiln drying for you. We will sticker, stack, and end coat your wood as part of the kiln-drying process. $.035/board foot, one-time charge for end coating your lumber Monthly storage fee: $10 minimum
$25 for 250 to 1000 board feet

One month free storage. (We will estimate air-drying time but you will be charged only on actual time it takes to dry. We’ll be happy to explain the process to you.) We will not charge any storage fees until your logs are cut.
We will kiln-dry your lumber. We sticker and stack your wood and end coat, if appropriate. Softwoods can be dried green. All other species must be a minimum of 20% moisture content (MC). We will measure moisture content of lumber brought to us to determine actual internal MC.
Estimate of most hardwood air-drying times to 20% MC is 5-12 months per inch thick, depending on time of the year and species. This is after logs are cut into lumber and stickered correctly. Example, 4/4 red oak cut on May 15th would be ready, theoretically, for the kiln on Nov. 1st. 4/4 red oak cut on Oct. 1 would be ready, theoretically, for the kiln on Apr. 15th.
