Hopefully not straying too far from the subject here, but why are you specifying 26' long dimensional lumber?
Is there any way you could use I series joist, or LSL members in lieu of the 2x10's? I know you can get 26' long engineered wood products, as this is one of their big advantages. I would expect to pay a premium for super long lengths of dimensional lumber. The difference in cost of a I series joist over the dimensional lumber would be nominal at best - might even be cheaper and faster to obtain than the finger jointed members with better quality control.
