I'll second Michael Hamburg's suggestion of local rough-cut lumber....most suburban and all rural areas have at least one sawmill per town (well, maybe not in the desert...) where you can buy lumber at 1/4 to 1/2 the price of the big-boxes and chain-store lumber dealers.
All sell lumber that is 'rough' - means you can see the marks the saw left as it cut the board, and it has somewhat of a fuzzy/splinter-y surface, many also have giant planing machines that will make it smooth, just like the big-box lumber.....
