Subject: Yellow pine vs white wood for shop?


So. IL
Working with local lumber yard figuring up what I need to build a new shop. They wanted to know if I wanted yellow pine or white wood, said its a personal preference and they do about half one way and half the other depending on the contractor building. What's everyone's thoughts on this? Building will be a 16 foot tall studded wall on top of a 4 foot concrete wall, 8 inches wide, 2x6 stud with the 2x4s horizontal on the outside for the tin.

Use the best, southern yellow pine, that is what Morton uses.

If its a good grade of yellow pine (#2 or better) then that is the best between the two. Which is Cheaper? The cheaper one would be my option.

They are both good, yellow pine is bit stronger, than spruce or whitewood, yellow pine has a tendency to warp more. Both wood be good

The whitewood (SPF - spruce, pine, fir) is what's typically found in the smaller dimensioned lumber such as 2x4 & 2x6's on residential construction. Yellow pine is seen more for joist (2x10, 2x12's) & sometimes trusses. Yellow pine is denser & stronger. I would follow the guidelines from the engineer associated with the building. With the 2x4's running horizontal, it's going to add a lot of strength. SPF material will probably be fine.

Yellow pine is stronger and denser as mentioned, the softer woods will not hold a nail or screw as well
as southern yellow pine.
Some contractors may prefer the soft woods, as they are only concerned about themselves, easier and
faster to put up a building. They do not care about how long the building lasts.
If you have a choice, get the better lumber.

My dad uses spruce 2x4's for studs, says they do not have tendency to warp as bad as pine. The pine is best for floor and ceiling joist and trusses as mentioned above. Dad said when he was younger all they framed with was "heavy" pine.

ekeller2,

For what it's worth, the local NRCS and SWCD requires #1 Southern Yellow Pine for any buildings they cost share. The lumber yards have to special order it. They stock #2 grade.
