We just purchased white pine siding for our small cabin (900 sq feet). We had it milled and need to know if we can put it up immediately or should we let it dry. Also, when would we stain and seal it? We were planning on starting on it this weekend, now we aren't sure.


I would let dry for a couple of weeks. You should also give it a light sanding with some 50 grit to remove the mill glaze to avoid peeling later.
