The only problem with that is obtaining pieces that are long enough. 
Typically black locust is available in widths like 2x4 or 2x6 and up 
to 12'. That's about it unless you want to scour the US for longer 
lengths. Osage trees are typically even smaller than black locust.

What profiles did you have in mind?

I wouldn't recommend either of these for studs as it's simply not 
necessary. What parts of the addition did you have in mind?
