Keep it thick seems to be ok...my 2x4 framed wall on the barn build danced all over the place when put together green. I would stay away from framing until it has a chance to dry.
    Be sure to pre-drill before nailing too as ash is so straight grained it splits easily.

With the imminent arrival of the Emerald Ash Borer, my forester has suggested that I mill some of it myself. Much of what I have in the woodlot is 20+" in diameter and I'm too old to deal with that weight, with a manual mill (LT15). I will tackle some smaller ones as I do like the finished wood. The market in VT is low as everybody is worried about the EAB. Time will tell!

Well, dusty, yeah.
After 330 logs the dust starts to pile up now, doesn't it?
:D  :D
So, here's the trick.
Fire up your snow blower and start at that man door at the back, and blow all that sawdust outta there.
You'll be finished in five minutes.
