Will my softwood for stud wall dry out?

Postby ohdearme » Sat Aug 15, 2020 7:10 pm


Living in London, my stud partition softwood has got wet over the last two days of wet weather, not soaked, they were covered. I have brought the timbers indoors now.

Will they dry out? How long please, I appreciate your answers will be just a guide, but will be grateful for your comments.

They will dry out and want to be below 18%moisture content before they are plasterboarded
