I usually buy for a specific project, but I usually have 50=60bf of white oak on hand. I also have a long haul to get lumber (225 round trip). Unless you have a lot of space to store lumber, let the lumber yard store it for you. I always kept a little more lumber when I was in Maine, because my shop was always heated and the lumber had a nice low moisture content. Down here in Texas, in the summer, the drinking water is only about 75% moisture so I still don’t worry about “wet” lumber.
