The news says the cost of a new singe family home will go up $36,000. A 2" x 4" x 8' at Lowes & Home Depot Saturday cost $7.25 and more.

2 X 6 16 Top Choice Fir = $22.26

1/4" BC Pine Exterior 4' X 8' Plywood = $36.42 = 50% increase in price.
Worse is the decrease in quality. HD has a reject bin with 70% off. Used to have some decent scrap wood. Now mostly garbage. Not a value at any cost.

Why, covid, Biden, global warming, or what?

Saw a video on the computer where huge staging yards across the border in Canada are full of lumber, off loaded from rail cars. Just sitting there and piling up. Some more political crap, no doubt.

I don't think the commies want people to build homes. They want you to move to the cities where you're more easily controlled. China did this over 25 years ago. Only farm workers are in the country.
