start building… personally i like to get the frame up then come back and put deck on hangers etc after it’s dried a couple days, but usually that’s not possible.

-- if it is to be it is up to me

Wear your dust masks , gloves and other protective gear too. It takes sharper blades to cut wet wood decently too.

It is going to twist some as it ages and will really never quit moving on you. as it absorbs and loses moisture.

Agree with the above. Start building while it’s wet and straight.
