Going to look at 8/4 Ponderosa pine tomorrow he is asking 1.50.

The only pricing I could find was beams at ~ 1.00 which looked knotty.

I think the price is OK but I was going to offer him 1.25 on 200 BF.

What you all think?

$1.50 for 8/4 clear pine (and I’m assuming dry) sounds reasonable to me. But I’m pretty new to the hobby. I could see him doing $1.25 on a large sale. But I don’t think I’d gripe about $1.50 if it’s all nice and clear. Less if it’s knotty.
