Thread: Timbers for skids

  1. #1

    Default Timbers for skids

    Anyone know the best place to get timbers to use as skids for a large outbuilding?
    Going to check the building supply places tomorrow, but figured there's usually somewhere
    to get them cheaper. (or someone that may have some sitting around)
    Thnx!

    You might say where you are, how large of timbers, how long they need to be. Treated timbers would be best obviously. How large is a large outbuilding?

    i usually go out in my back yard and delimb a few....

    two for skids and two more smaller ones to cross brace with to keep the shed on the pols.and hold the poles at the correct placement.

    then when i am done dragging them down the highway...( wait... thats not really legal? or is it?) i use them for fire wood

    Give Northland Wood a call, then call SBS. There are times you can get doug fir timbers from SBS for the same price as spruce timbers from Northland. Sometimes it's the other way around.
