Construction lumber is not kiln dried to level of hardwood lumber. Moisture content for construction lumber is 18-20%. If yours is 15% it has dried some. It would certainly be better if you could get that lumber drier by bringing it inside into a heated space, like under your bed. Either way you will still have to allow for wood movement in your construction.
