So I'm wanting 8X8 treated pilings (Lowes only has 6x6) for my cabin foundation pilings, probably 12, need to be 8', buried 4' and up 4'. I also need 6 12' 4X12's or 3 24 footers if they were made. These will be the main floor beams, and the floor joists will rest on them, these will fit atop of the 8x8 pilings. Cabin is to be 16X24, and all Lowes has is 4X8X12's so if I were to use the 4X12's I'd have to butt them together and use a strong tie to join em. How are you guys joining the floor beams when they are so long, or does someone sell really long beams?
Anyone else got good prices on lumber besides Lowes and Home Depot in the Valley? I'll be buying sheet metal for the roof from Majic Metals in Palmer as I did befroe for the kid's cabin/tree house.
Thanks Billy Jack
