With the real estate market being red hot getting certain materials up our way is nearly impossible. Pressure treated, yeah forget it. Sold out everywhere around me. Azek decking materials, disaster. Just heard tonight expect a 30% increase across the board for regular framing materials.  I can’t complain I’m swamped with work.

As far as pressure treated goes, A supplier told me the mills are only running at 15% due to the pandemic. How accurate that is I'm not sure, but we have been able to source some from time to time as it comes in.

The lumber section of our nearby Lowes is starting to look like the grocery stores did during the first week of the declared pandemic.  Very slim pickins and all the pressured treated stuff looks like crap.
