Prices have skyrocked since Covid. My in-law's are home builders and their lumber prices have almost doubled. Had a few projects to do and was going to start building a new house this year, going to wait now. Supposedly a lot of the mills were/are down. I suggest you hold off on the cattle barn for a while... Hopefully prices will come back down later this year.

Tell me about it. I'm in the cabinetry/finish carpentry business and I'm about ready to give in and start doing everything on time and materials.

Prices are through the roof. There are threads about it.

Although I will say it seems to be affecting lumber worse than hardwoods and finished sheet goods.

Pretty bad when a sheet of 7/16" OSB and a sheet of 3/4" D3 domestic plywood are only a few dollars difference.

I'm a home builder on Lake Fork. House prices are through the roof because of that and other factors.

I went and built a small porch/patio off my 5th wheel down in Rockport last week. One level, frame was 2x6, runners were 2x5/4 or similar. 12x14 simple little deal. Holy heck, lumber was almost a grand. 2014 I built a glorious patio deck at the house and it was less and a lot bigger, a lot bigger. After figuring cost I might of been better with crushed granite or concrete.

I just found out I have twins on the way. This will make 5 kids. Already have 2 sharing a bedroom. I have to add on, and it can't wait. Wish I was in a position to hold off until prices got right again.

It’s “that position” that got you into this situation.

It hopefully will get better.

Sounds like your LivinADream!

Stay positive! If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it!

I am livinadream brother. God has blessed my family way beyond measure. I'm not worried at all about the money, would just rather be able to do it for half the price.
