In a low tech society there are a lot of craftsmen storing wood for 
seasoning. Craftsmen living in the same place year after year can save 
some money by getting green wood and letting it season until it is 
ready. It should cost a bit of a premium, but seasoned logs and planks 
of local varieties of wood should be available for purchase from 
carpenters, woodwrights, et cetera. Adventurers should easily be able to 
afford the premium and will have wood ready to use.

To a lesser extent other raw materials may be available for a premium. 
Example: The local forge may have bought several years supply of iron 
ore and will be willing to sell some for twice the cost per pound that 
they paid for it.

Of course this is less likely to happen in some areas...particularly far 
from civilization.
