Yup it’s crazy! When we started renovating our house 3/4” plywood was 47-48$ it went up weekly out of control.

Yep! I've been wanting/needing to build one since last season. Currently trying to figure out something else to use for siding. Wood is crazy high!

Use hardi siding at those prices, will last forever. Never understood using OSB for blinds, it doesnt hold up well.

Talked with a good friend that works at our local owned lumber yard, they are not putting any mark up on plywood due to it's price right now. The owners stated they will make up the difference with other goods and supplies folks will need for the building projects. They are not gouging on other supplies either.
Hope some of your yards are doing the same.

Tell me about it. Wife and I both retired on 12-31-2020. We planned for years to build our "forever" home in Central TX. While we could get top dollar for our existing home, it would now cost about 150K more to build a new one and it is smaller than the one we are in. Unless something changes drastically, I guess we are where we are.

Same thing I was thinking. It headed that way fast and will probably be there in another month but Home Depot is still around $45.

I agree. I built 3 wood blinds over the years and finally bought a fiberglass blind in 2007. It is just as good today other than I need to paint it. I could probably sell it for more than I paid for it to. Try doing that with a wood blind.

Nothing wrong with a fiberglass blind at all. If you build a plywood/wood type blind and put 30# felt paper around the outside, tin on the roof there is no reason it shouldn’t last 20-30-40 years. I have them from the 1980’s.

I’m just going to buy a Krivoman. Was looking at building a new bow blind and the cost of wood literally is more than a Krivoman.

I looked the sheds outside Lowe's Friday and they didn't have prices on them. I went inside and asked how much and was told they're not selling any because the don't know how much they will cost anymore. I asked when will they sell them and they said they didn't know. I bought a 8'x12' Alpine shed in January for $2,100 and it's $3,100 now.

With current lumber costs, this is not a bad idea for some “permanent” blind locations.

Coroplast works great for blinds and is $20 for a 4x8 sheet. Sand and paint it camo...lasts many years.

May be what I end up using. I need to build a 4x6 or maybe 6x8 ground blind. Cut some 2x2s from 2x4s for the frame. I've already got a roll of tarpaper to wrap it with and use this instead of plywood. I also already have a couple sheets for the floor. Might work okay.
