The wood is about 16 to 20 % when I first get it. It gets stacked for a few days or weeks until it's about 12 to 15 when I mill it to size. It's about 6 to 10 by the time I get to assembly.I was curious about humidity over there. Freezes do have advantages. My shop is on pilings over an estuary and under the murky skies.
Cheers to a toasty shop this winter.
Moving air will dry wood faster than heat, limiting case hardning which causes lumber to twist and check.
