I am building a house in central Texas and I got a quote from my builder to upgrade the interior trim to stain grade knotty pine instead of painted. The quote seemed reasonable, but I decided I'd rather have cypress trim since that will match the front door I'm having made, and it is native to the area.
The quote for cypress was more than twice as much. Does that seem right? I'm having a hard time researching this online, since most lumberyards don't post their prices online. Can anyone suggest a resource for lumber costs?
I'd like to use a wood for the trim that is native to the area. In addition to cypress, those woods are pecan and red oak. Would pecan or red oak be more reasonable than the cypress?
