Western Red Cedar Tsunami of Values

Mill Outlet has always been a reliable source for great deals on Cedar and Pressure Treated lumber. Right now there seems to be an up swell of exceptional new cedar products in our little pond. More like a Tsunami, relentless and overwhelming wave after wave of great values.

I receive many calls from people looking for board and batten siding, usually looking for 10 or 12″ wide boards. Our new 5/4×8 rougherheaded blanks will work great for board and bat. In fact you can install the full width boards with a 2″ space between them, then rip more in half for 3 5/8″ battens to cover the space. At $ .75/foot you will be looking at about $1.30 per square foot for burly 1″ thick rustic siding. Our you can use these for trim and fascia board or to build a Gazebo like one customer this morning. These blanks are one of the, if not “the” best value I have seen in Cedar in 30 years.

As If that was not amazing, we also have excellent inventory of 2×8, 2×10 and 2×12 cedar boards, Priced right and selling fast they be. People are using them for raised beds but also for Pergolas arbors and fences. This is lumber you will not find in just any old yard.

And there is more, 5/4×4-6′ Radius Edge decking for only $ .25/ft, use it for decking, fencing or general garden use, at $1.50 per board you can not lose.

And Vertical grain clears in just about every imaginable size, boat builders, hobbyists and most recently used for rainscreen style siding, which I am certain looks amazing

Some Things you just have to Share

There is no end to the new and different wood products we come up with at Mill Outlet Lumber. This week there are Four, Happy New Year. We brought in some Knot free, Clear Incense Cedar 4×4 posts on Monday to see how they looked, the price was already right, and they are beautiful! Tight Grain and perfect.

So, we ordered up the rest of them, should be enough to last into the Summer unless too many people find out about them.

Second Item of the week is Pac-Trims, this 1×4 tongue and groove has been taking off at           $ .25/foot since it came in a couple of weeks ago, so we doubled down and have another big stack on the way next week. This will ensure that we have this great material available for the next month or so. In addition to the 1×4 we also picked up some 1×6 in 12′ and 14′ lengths that will be available for $ .50,foot.

Pac Trims

Third, we just received several thousand feet of 5/4 x 8 Cedar Bevel Siding Blanks. We will make some of this into bevel siding, but also decking or tongue and groove paneling. Until then, it is available just the way it is for $ .75/ foot. This would work great for Board and batten siding or any sort of exterior trim. It has a rougher texture, but I would use it as decking just the way it is, or fencing,,,or???

Inexpensive, quality cedar

Finally, something you probably wouldn’t guess. Clear Cedar Handrail $2.00 per foot, that’s less than you can get the 2×6 for, and then still have to make it.
