    In the last few weeks the lumber futures prices have dropped from over 900$ / 1000 BF to around 600$ / 1000.

    I just watched a video where the couple goes to buy OSB. It was just over $10/sheet at the beginning of summer, now it’s at $30/sheet.

    We are seeing that here also. It was 8 or 9 bucks earlier this year and I just priced some today at a big box that was 23. In the local yards it is 30 or better. Most yards are limiting you to one unit per order also.

    Hoping the right property comes along before too long.

    One thing that has remained strong throughout 2020 housing prices and used cars; both are up and staying up. The housing market in the US is tight.

    That’s just crazy pricing. Hope things settle down and go back to normal before long.

    Agree, it is a crazy market right now here also. If you don’t get a viewing of a property within a day or two it will be gone. Which is why I was looking into the metal building options.

    Been about 2 1/2 months since the last post, and things with the market have gotten worse if anything.
    Have switched to looking for land once again, but hiring a builder is pretty much out the window between all of them being busy – and materials pricing getting out of hand.
    So I started looking at the metal building options once again. Which means research on foundation/pad and other items of interest if I decided to go with an outdoors wood boiler system.

    Sorry to hear that , you mean worse in a seller’s market I assume , I know here the value has been rising more and more

    My friend from work is a plumber , he just finished building a bungalow on slab in Ontario , they used in floor heating with another system , his house came out beautiful , but it’s not metal , it’s stick and stone.
    But this was about 3 years ago , before covid19 drove up materials pricing.

    I haven’t witnessed it happening yet, but we have had our first snow slides off the new metal roof. The aftermath looks really cool as it doesn’t all come off at once, so you have a stripe effect of roof and snow.

    Worse for buyers, we have tried to look at a number of houses that are marked as ‘new’ on the market. By the time our Realtor contacts the listing agent – the property already has multiple offers and they have stopped showing the property.
