    Check your local building dept. Here building dept does not allow used lumber for structural elements.

    Codes do vary a lot from city to city, and checking with local building dept is a smart thing to do.

    I was never questioned by an inspector for using clean, rot free, termite free, straight and untwisted, recycled lumber.

    In fact, there are demolition contractors around here, who specialize in salvaging used lumber.
