board and batten length?

I am hoping i can get board and batten lengths of 14'?

I guess i am only limited by the plank lengths that are available in my area?

Thanks in advance.

Re: board and batten length?

you got'r pontiac. youll have to talk to a local mill to see what lengths are available.

lumber is getting shorter and shorter, well to find decent quality lumber that is defect free and still straight. most of the wood today is fast growing which makes it of lesser quality, much more susceptible to warping and other defects

My father had an old 1900 vintage four flat in Duluth, Minnesota that had balloon construction with true dimension, 30 foot long 2x4 wall studs. Try to find those today! :)
