Every day I hear Customers say ” I love the smell here”. Keep in mind, Mill Outlet is completely outdoors and on a ridge where the wind blows constantly. So to say it smells great here or like anything at all, is really amazing.

It's the Cedar

It’s the Cedar

It is the cedar. it is everywhere. Shingles, decking, fence boards and split rail. 2×4’s, Timbers, 4×4’s and Shakes. Finish grade, utility grade, 2×12’s and 8×8’s.

The aroma of Tacoma has been infamous over the years, but come to Mill Outlet Lumber for the new, pleasant Tacoma aroma.

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

Perfect for me, Perfect for You?

This morning I was responding to an E mail inquiry for some clear utility cedar we have. The customer wanted specified lengths and in the end said, oh yeah and the boards need to be  perfect.

Perfect ?

This was a reminder to me of why I enjoy selling lumber products so much. I reminded him that if these boards were quote, unquote perfect they would be more like $6-$7 per board foot instead of $2.50. What I considered but did not mention was that even the $6 per foot boards would not be perfect for some or even most people when all facts are considered. The boards might be straight, tight and vertical grained, perfectly dried and of consistent color, perfectly surfaced and edged, but who can afford $6.00 per board foot. That is $100.00 for 2-10 foot 1×10 boards, not perfect for me at least.
