People love home improvements and Do-It-Yourself projects. The popular pastime has become one of the main ‘hobbies’ among Americans over the last twenty years or so and stores that sell items used for home improvements have become a popular weekend haunt for thousands of DIY fans flocking to their ‘Mecca’. DIY stores sell anything from nuts, bolts and screws to kitchens, appliances, fireplaces and lumber. The draw of the DIY store can often be simply that it sells everything. Whereas some will go window shopping at a clothes store or a department store, others will settle into a DIY store to browse and look and test and try for hours.
Lumber is one of those items that many DIY fans will buy for various indoor and outdoor projects. Lumber can be used for decking, fencing, shelving and whole host of other ideas and there are as many types of lumber as there are ideas for its use. Lumber is wood which has been harvested and made into planks or boards for use with indoor and outdoor construction ideas. Most lumber is supplied in a standardized size and can be made from any type of harvested wood, such as spruce, pine, cedar, fir and so on.
Sourcing the Right Lumber for your Project
To decide what kind of wood you need the best way to determine that is to think about the nature of the project. Firstly, if the project is indoor or outdoor it will require a different type of lumber. Outdoor projects should ideally use wood that has been treated for outdoor use. In other words it is treated to withstand weather conditions and is a little more hard wearing that standard indoor wood.
The next thing to think about is how much you will need. If your project is big you might want to use a wholesale lumber yard where you can get some level of discount for bulk purchasing. If your project is smaller you can use the sources of a local lumber merchant and pay reasonable prices from them. Hardwoods and softwoods are your next decision and you should choose the wood most suitable to the project you are undertaking. Lumber in Laguna Niguel CA will likely come from local or nearby forests.
