I’ve got orders coming in the Larch but I’m unsure what to charge. £3 a board foot seems the going rate for 153mm x 18mm cladding.

 

Does this sound right? Would the same BF price go for 6x2” etc?

If I'm correct in thinking that £3 per board foot equates to £36 per cubic foot then that seems a very high price for larch. Perhaps I'm too cheap and not up to date with recent price increases.

No, that's an insane price. Almost £100 a cubic foot. 

 

I'd be looking at £18/cubic foot for rough sawn cladding. That equates to £1.85 per linear metre.

That's exactly what I'm currently pricing at.

Do you actually mean board foot or linear foot based on your cross sectional profile? Why are you using the American board foot system? I generally think and price in cubic inches and feet and then convert to cubic meters if I have to. I price for cladding on the basis of board face area. In fact, I'm just working out a quote now but my phone keeps pinging! Cheers, Tom.

I don’t know how I ended up using board foot to be honest? Now that I have I find it easier to visualise and price. The Norwood App is quite handy. Punch in the dimensions and you get board feet. I have in my head what I charge for oak in board foot. 
 

Im very new to pricing up as I’ve mostly milled for my own supply.
