Trying to help my elderly neighbor get outside. He's 84 and I'm 70. He loves puttering around with plants and gardening. suggested a couple of raised beds for planting. 5x11 2' high.
Made with ground contact 2x12s 16 ft long.
wow $71.00 each
bought 8 online for pickup the next morning.
went to get them. They were loaded on a lumber cart.
As i was pushing the cart out I saw another cart full of lumber culls. All treated lumber. What caught my eye were the 3 16' 2x12s at the bottom of the cart. Top of cart had 2x4s 6s 8s in all different lengths.
checked the tag on cart. Originally $900 reduced to 300.
that cart came home too.
Built the raised beds and returned 3 of the original 2x12s that were worse than the culled lumber. Almost paid for the cull cart

I bought 13 - 4x8 sheets of T-111 a week ago.
Price was $850......same as my mother paid for the 11.7 Ac. with house (ocean view), in 1932.
The good news: The 290 year old house with land, has appreciated approximately 3000 times.
