Bet you thought “Barn Find”, nope the actual barn. High winds then a tornado took part of the roof off the horse barn over the last 2 years. Finally found someone willing to remove the remaining tin roof and frame for a conventional roof system. Of course this project requires the purchase of wood. No problem with 2X6 rafter material or OSB decking. Shingles, well that’s another matter all together. Had to upgrade to find any at all. Pressure treated wood is almost unobtainable. Found a major lumber yard in OKC who let me go in the yard and check for myself. I found the stash of 4X4s and got what I needed to enlarge the doorways. Contractor notified me this morning he was short on 2X6X14 rafters. Needed 16 more due to wood rot. Found the last of those at Lowe’s along with 2X4X8ft studs. No 1X6 in any length. I guess I’ll make another trip to OKC tomorrow and see if any yards over there have any. This COVID thing has got the lumber supply chain really behind or people are building stuff faster than the mills can supply. A real PITA.

I didn't realize it was hitting the lumber industry. Good thing I don't need any building done.

Glad you can keep the horses dry. We built two run ins last year and they did good in the hurricane. Been waitin to go to lowes to get 4x4 to repair the chicken house but its hard to go in and shop and lots of shelf space.

I have been doing some remodeling in the shop that I posted. Been to Lowes every day and it has been crowded every day. They had restocked yesterday they were low on a wide variety of items. Garden supplies Has been going strong. Martin, don't overdo it and be safe.

Our son works at a local lumber yard.
They mostly supply contractors.
With so many off work, homeowners are doing home repairs and projects.
So the sheds are getting empty for lumber and he has been working six days a week since March.

I have a soft wood and hardwood saw mill just 25 miles from me on the Red River and another that just does cedar about 30 miles to the east. Either will cut to custom size so this is handy for rebuilding the larger truck beds/floors. Many think of Texas as just cows and oil but it has a huge lumber industry.

I guess if I can’t find any 1X6 I’ll have to consider recycling some of the wood that came off the old roof. Pull out the table saw, pull all the nails and cut to whatever size my contractor wants.

Martin, my guess is you need 1x6s for lathing. If so, I'd check local sawmills. I know they're not as common in your part of the world as here is Arkansas, but a google search did turn up several hits. All mills generate lumber that's secondary to their primary market when sawing logs to size as they prepare them for the final cuts needed to produce material for there target market. This side lumber can often be purchased for a song. My brother has about retired his bandsaw mill, but has started sawing for a larger operation. They cut precision bridge timbers for the railroad market. The secondary side lumber can be bought in 4'x4'x16' bundles on stacking sticks for $100 a bundle. I haven't bought any since I usually just call little Bro and tell him what I need and it shows up a few days later.

Good Luck,

RonR

The 1X6s are for facia that will allow the decking to overhang for water shed. Think I’m going to recycle some lumber that the contractor removed. He just doesn’t know it yet🤣 He likes to use new wood but beggars can’t be choosers.
