Was just reading about illegal stuff in Mexico...lots to read. One of the things the cartels have been into for years is illegal logging! Never heard that before. Drugs, prostitutes, human smuggling, sure...but they also have logging outfits as well as tobacco companies...
Even they probably didn't think about that division bringing in big numbers!

So Lumber is the next big rip-off like the Oil companies?

Plans approved? If not it could be months and hopefully lumber comes down. I have a client having plans drawn now for addition and 1 for a ADU.

I think the lumber sales have figured that people have to wait 8 months dealing with plan check and once approved they just want to get it done and pay the price.

I spoke to my designer yesterday and he said cabinets and tile and other items are up to 3 -3.5 months out.... crazy how things get pushed way out like that. Drywall has gone up, in most factories occupancy is still at a 40-50% capacity due to Covid, ADD THAT to a shut down and you can’t catch up while everything is booming

basically sign contract today and hope it’s wrapped up before Christmas!

I’m looking to have a 3-car garage built on my property.

Steel prices have gone up, but a steel garage is only gonna be about half what it’ll cost to have it built with sticks.

Crazy…

Submitting to the City of Lakewood this week, 1600sgft two story addition. It maybe a while and hoping prices's start to go the other way by time of approval.
My nephew (GC, mostly door's/windows) is part a large project in Newport Coast at an oceanfront home. Chinese owner bought the place for a mer 14.4m and is tearing the back of it off for remodel. The windows and doors for the back of the house are going to run about 245k and since the rear doors will not align with the swimming pool now owner is having the pool moved to the north about 4'. 😲 My nephew was talking with the GC working on the house next door. They are putting down new exotic flooring downstairs at a cost of 600k. Crazy $$$$ these people have.

I priced out replacing my fence at my home a few years ago and it was roughly 5500 bucks.

My neighbor had a small section of her's replaced a few weeks ago and I got a quote from the guy as he was already here and I was home.

10k

I want to build a wood deck around my house but now thinking I might just pour a concrete slab instead, stamp and color to make it look like wood.

Not so sure going concrete is going to be any cheaper. It has jumped almost as bad.

I've been remodeling my house for the past year or so. Replaced some subfloor, added 1/2" osb screwed down on top then added 3/4" plywood planks I made. Did shiplap wall in kitchen and dining room and horizontal accent in my son's room. I'm currently building out the garage and skinning the ceiling with osb. Needless to say there's a lot of wood and I've just been creative in acquiring the materials needed. The plywood used for the floors was $34 per 4x8 sheet when I started...it's now $68 per sheet! I've been able to track down a lot of plywood, 2x6, 4x4 and other lumber for cheap or even free. Keeping a stock pile as I have the room for it.
