    Would you be willing to trade for a 4X8 5/8 OSB and a 1979 White Chevrolet Chevette ?

    OH I KNOW!!! I tell you what, a few days ago, I made a special trip to my local lumber store/bank to just get some lumber and plywood to have around. I’ve been there about a million times over the last 40 years. I’ve spent at least a hundred grand there over the years. I went in, and I know lumber has really risen but this is the first time ever I’ve walked in that place and walked right back out - wood has gotten so expensive that I felt insulted. I bought a 2x4 last year for about $3.25. Now it’s $8 for a F’ing 2x4!!! :eek::mad:

    Needless to say that deck I built for around $4000 early this year would cost me at least twice that. Insane. I’m not buying wood now unless I absolutely need it.

    Yikes! But copper has been insane for some years now. As a sound company, I have to have lots of extension cords. So for minimal power drop I’d buy 10g 100’ cables. Used to be about $40. Then one day they went about double. Last time I looked at HD they were like $100 :eek:

    I built a 10X16 shed last summer, cost me about 5000$ CAN, I can't even imagine how much it would cost this summer.

    My wife asked me to build sort of an extension for firewood, I told her she would need to wait another year. I'm not building an extension that will cost half the price of the whole shed for firewood !!!

    I have a friend who works for one of the very large lumber wholesalers. Supply is low, demand is high. They just had their best year ever. Surprise.

    Can you build a guitar body out of 3/4 inch plywood?

    It sure ain't helping me right now.

    Plumbing. & electrical materials are 60-70% higher too

    Why don’t you build an extension of firewood?
