We have been waiting patiently for 2 new shingle products to arrive and as of today they are here. The first and most unique is a #1 grade Kiln Dried, Re-jointed and Re-Butted, Sanded, Alaska Yellow Cedar 18″ sidewall shingle. These shingles are perfection, literally. Alaska Yellow Cedar is extremely durable and strong with insect and rot resistance equal to or greater than western Red cedar. There is a dead stand of AYC at 4200′ on the way to Hurricane Ridge on the Olympic peninsula that has been virtually unchanged since the 1960’s or earlier. This is in an area where less hardy trees like Sub alpine fir last 5 year or less once they are blown down or die. These Alaskan Yellow Cedar shingles are available at only a few places nationwide and nowhere but Mill Outlet at our competitive price.

White Fir Decking arriving soon to Mill Outlet Lumber. These attractive boards are
3/4″ x 4 5/8″x 12′ long and are a B clear grade, meaning that they have some knots, but are primarily Clear. What!, 1×5 decking, nobody uses that. This is true, but apparently they do in Korea where this material was originally destined to go. The deal fell through and we swooped in to pick up the bargain for you.
Not just for Decks anymore
Do not limit yourself to think of this lumber only as decking. It is perfect for door jambs and window liners, we will probably have some made into flooring and paneling. It was kiln dried to 14% moisture content and has a heavily relieved back to ensure dimensional stability.
