how long should lumber dry after milling?
We are installing Cape Cod siding on our house, but for the corner boards and skirt board we bought lumber that was just milled, but cut in the summer (a few months ago)
We need to paint or stain both sides of the boards before putting them on. We plan on putting them in a garage with a large fan on them. Does anyone know how long they should dry this way before painting or staining at least the inside of the boards. And what is a good paint or stain to use? Thanks for any input on this from someone who knows more than we do about drying wood.
