the wife and i have been trying to get things arranged to start on a house in the spring. i was thinking of using rough cut lumber to build with. after looking at the fine lumber that lowes and home depot have to offer, i've almost completely decided on it. i realize the tolerances between boards may not be as tight as dimensional, but the stuff the box stores have seemed to be real junk. i think that if i'm going to pay for a crooked board it might as well be cheaper.
what are the down falls? any one have any good or bad experiences using rough cut as a building material. all info welcome. thanks in advance.
