Default Framing Package Prices??

Anyone seeing any relief yet on framing packages with lumber down into the high 5’s per 1000 bird feet?

Confirm it is dropping. Cedar is not dropping but others are and it's working through the system

I'm ready to see the drop as we will be buying the lumber for our new house and cabin very soon.

Neighbor is a sells guy at a big yard and he said custom build packages are dropping fast.

We were supposed to start in Feb. We changed our house plans because it got so bad, and we're going out for rebid right now. Blessing in disguise because we like the condensed plans more, and its significantly cheaper across the board thus far.

My lumber package for the house I just started was 90k a few months ago. As of last Friday we are at 65k. Exactly where I had budgeted for lumber.

Lumber and structural panels are down significantly. Engineered wood, any/all Cornice material, and cedar are all either the same or up.
Availability on common lumber and panels is good. Hardie, Allura, LP, Collins exterior trim/soffit are all still on allocation and very difficult to source, same with LVLs, prefab web trusses, I-Joists. Cedar is hit & miss.

Will have my contractor rebid for sure. Btw my construction is actually a remodel although 80% of final product will be new.

I'm in a VERY similar situation... We should have our lumber bid back today, and framing bid back sometime this week.
