@OP – I recommend using your garage, but swallow hard and run electricity to support a fan for air circulation.

Something else: don’t pay much if anything for this lumber. Lot’s can /will go wrong with homegrown so avoid paying for what could end up being expensive shavings and firewood. Cinder blocks or bags of sand or Portland cement to weight down the stack and fight warpage are also recommended.

Lastly, keep in mind that with air drying you’re channeling something like savings bond investments: molasses slow and no discernible return for a long time.

Whatever you do please keep with it and periodically report back the good and bad: n ewbs and old hands alike will appreciate the data.
