Love seeing these
My neighbor on the corner lot across the street from me clear-cut his land, put a black wood fence around it, and then 6 months ago put down a gravel driveway
It was once a beautiful natural area with plenty of hardwoods and a shed, now it's an empty lot with a fence and a big gravel line through it

2x4 are 1.5x3.5 typically because when they cut it at the mill they will then dry it, which causes it to contract. That’s where the half inch goes. It’s not any kind of deception and you do not gain anything from using a “true” 2x4. If you are using mostly 2x4s for your loadbearing elements, you already fucked up. 2x6s for loadbearing and exterior walls are standard. 2x4s mostly used for non-loadbearing walls, with some exception (ie garage walls, party walls).

No. It. Is. Not.

It's the same with air filters. A 16x25x1 air filter actually measures 15.5"x24.5"x.75". They round up because it's sounds better.

More. Bullshit.

I used to live in a Victorian house with plaster walls. The studs were actually 2" by 4" and made of oak. I believe th reduction to 1.5 x 3.5 was intentional to save wood and not a result of shrinking.
