Hi Guys iv started to put a stud wall up in the garage conversion, iv only bought a few lengths of wood just to see how it goes,
I bought Treated Sawn Timber (T)47mm (W)100mm (L)2400mm Pack of 4 but iv noticed its quite wet of it being treated, is this normal for it to be wet?, I'm putting up walls and I'm wondering if iv bought the right stuff here, Garage is very cold at the moment and don't want to add to the problems, I know it will dry eventually but I do wonder if I'm using right stuff

Here's a pic of my progress :)



Thanks for any info

If freshly treated it will indeed be wet. It isn't an issue as the moisture will evaporate off into the air and it will go down to the same level as the surrounding timber quite quickly (days not months). The pressure treatment process tends to make the outer 2 to 5mm very wet - the core, having kiln dried, will stay drier despite the treatment

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

Agreed and it's probably not helped that a lot of treated timber is stored outside .
