Thanks for the link.  You do nice work.

You must be in east Texas to have the trees you listed. That put you close to fishfighter, a member of some notoriety.   ;D

Pitch is the resin in pine trees.  Some species are more resinous than others.  Pine pitch in framing lumber is not so much of problem, but if you use pine inside, say for paneling or trim, the pitch will bleed forever and leave a sticky surface.  Setting the pitch is done by raising the temperature for 24 hours, usually to around 160F.  It hardens the pitch and keeps it from oozing and bleeding.  Check out the drying and processing forum.  It is frequently a topic of discussion.

Don't be concerned with the pitch on framing lumber.  Also the first framing lumber that you saw and sticker will be plenty dry by the time that you get to using it.  Stack it outside covered with metal roofing and then move it inside as needed.
 

 
 

 
Here are pictures of framing lumber for a new home that was sawn in 4 days by 6 people, with a Wood-Mizer Lt40 and a Wood-Mizer edger.

Nice!!!!!!    I can't wait to get started! 

Most of my lumber will be 10' and over. We will have 10' ceilings in all rooms except living which will be 12'. Since it will be in a pile barn I won't have to worry about rafters!!

Thank y'all very much! 

At the moment I am not taking orders due to fixing to start this house project so I won't be in the knife shop for a while.
