10 Lumber Producers make up over 60% of Lumber market in the US. If they wanted to, and I suspect they do, they will curtail production to keep prices high the remainder of the year.

In 2021, the cost to frame the average sized new home in the US has more than doubled in the past few years and is expected to triple in cost (from 2017) before year end.

When the market corrects, lots of new homebuyers will be immediately upside down on the value of their home vs their current mortgage. Yikes!

Biden says this huge corporate tax he is imposing won't hurt us, didn't he ever take economics? They just pass it on down to the customers in increased prices in everything. Trickled on down to us the taxpayers. Thanks Joe.

My son interns with a carpenter and says they see the prices going crazy. We buy from the Amish and it's cheaper than home poo poo (as my sons Russian colleague calls it).

I've got an idea for ya. Look at who's in office. Look at the great reset. Not to be a conspiracy theorist or anything but I am.
IMO there has been a clown of some variety in office since Ronald Reagan.

ALL of them......including Trump. Trump couldn’t keep his mouth shut.

That's what got him elected the first time. People liked that someone was finally telling it like it is.
Fraud got Biden installed this last time.

I'm a member of a contractor's forum.
There are lots of stories that the mills are sitting on yards full of product to keep the prices high.

Trump would’ve been re-elected if he could’ve kept his mouth shut.

He lost a lot of votes by what he said vs what he did.

But, he banned bump stocks and made them illegal. He lost my support when he did that. Plus he can’t control himself, that’s not a good quality for a President.

There’s fraud in every election. I don’t believe fraud played a deciding factor in this election, no more than Russia played a part in the 2016 elections.

It’s all just BS to claim a reason that the current President is illegitimate.

So you traded bump stocks which nobody gives a crap about for total gun grabs, socialism and green garbage. Brilliant Opie! I see you share the same opinions as your Canadian friends at DSB

I had never heard the term "bump stock" before it hit the news.
Lots of gun guys never had either.
I/we had to look it up.

I made my own back when they first hit the market. Fun toy to blow thru stupid amounts of ammo. Pretty much useless for anything else. No fighting value at all.

I have been watching craigslist under materials and getting used or extra lumber supplies when I can. I am also going to build another small hot house for my plants.

Aren't you glad we now have a president that barely can talk? Our economy is doing sooo much better now. Gas prices have doubled, lumber prices are skyrocketing, food prices are rising faster than ever. Yup, so much better with orange man gone.

And people are so excited about it that they are coming here in record numbers, even as companies are making plans to move manufacturing out of the country. Kinda like Ford moving to Mexico.

.

So I sunk two 4x4 posts 48” into the ground and concreted them in.
Congratulations, you just shortened the life span of your posts considerably by immersing the butts in concrete. The chemicals will eat that wood in a few years.
Especially now that CCA treating is illegal.

The butts aren’t in the concrete. Only at the top foot where the posts meet the ground are they in concrete. That’s where the concrete offered the most support.

There’s gravel in the bottom of the hole.

The posts are rated for direct ground contact. 👍

Neither candidate was appealing to me.
