cheap timber!!


Postby sweetorb » Wed Feb 11, 2009 9:19 pm

i recently moved into a new house and have decided to build myself a workshop in the garden..( at last i have permision from the boss!!)

ive got no problem building it as im a carperter of nearly 20 years and got into my trade thru working at a local shed/summerhouse manufacturers,then goin college,doin apprenticeship etc..etc...

decided on the design but am trying to source some cheap timber as its a big workshop and my initial pricings were a bit of a shock,specifically looking for some cheap shiplap (thick/rebated preferably),failing that am not averse to featheredge(aware of the downsides,shrinking etc,can make it solid an itll b ins and lined anyway). also looking for some sawn 6/5x2 to make a raised deck to sit it on.. any ideas? dont mind collecting. am northants based.


thanks

HI....if you go to a yahoo site called freecycle,sign up to your local group,and put in a wanted request for wood....everything on the site is free,its put on the site rather than sending it to landfillyou will be supprised what you can get for your project,and at no cost .....mike
