1 x 4 or 1 x 6 Pine beadboard or V groove

I've just gutted my 500 ft2 home and want to put either 1 x 4 pine beadboard or the 1 x 6 pine v groove on the walls and ceilings. No drywall here.
I figure I'll need about 2000 ft2 of board. Is there anywhere I can purchase this much without going to Home Depot or Lowes? I'd love to find a sawmill and purchase what I need. Any ideas or leads will be greatly appreciated.
I'm in Saint Petersburg, Florida Thanks, Joe

I should think your local building supply or lumber yard would be happy to order the material, in whatever wood, grade and configuration you wanted. They will probably even deliver it! You could check online too. Nobody checks the crap at the box stores so plan on standing there for a day or so just to sort what you need. You cannot even trust those with a halfway decent contractor department when it comes to this sort of thing. And of course, they will not have as much as you need on hand and will not be able to tell you when, or if, they can get more to match.

they also make it in 3/8"x 3-1/2" X 16' primed finger joint. I used this product allot on Reno work. What I do is install 1/2 Plywood over the studs so I have nailing in all areas.This type of product can be bought at a real lumber yard not Lowe's or Home Depot.

And don't just think wood. If you are going to paint it, there are all kinds of nice recycled materials configured into the look you seem to want to achieve. Surfaced bamboo ceilings and walls are becoming more popular too but I have not yet seen it configured as beadboard.

Look for a millwork supply company in the phone book or by searching on Google. The amount you need is going to be well over the minimum orders generally required. You could also save quite a bit of money since you will be eliminating the retail mark up. A quick Google search brought this up for me:

Go to midwestlumberinc.com and check out their Pyramid Peak prefinished v-groove pine. I install quite a bit of this product and absolutely love it. If you call them, they will help you find a dealer near you. The ends are tongue and groove also, so you don't have to land on a stud or ceiling joist, making install fast and easy, with virtually no waste. Also it has a high quality finish already applied.
