Acclimate trim prior to priming and painting
Yet another question.....The int trim and doors for half the house was delivered today. Woot!!

I have MDF Cove moulding, FJP Window casing and pre hung doors (Masonite and FJP). The doors are ordered as slab and then the local lumber yard makes them up locally so I have no idea where the trim lives at the yard during that process

How long do I have to let this stuff sit inside before its acclimatized and I can start the fun painting stuff? We are in MS and running about between 85 and 90 degrees during the day and the humidity is anywhere from 60 - 90 percent on any given day. I do not have the new AC installed yet if that helps any.

I've never acclimated trim that's already attached to something. (the jambs)
