I keep hearing the same type of stuff. But who knows what to believe anymore.Anyone read the report of rail shipyards just full of lumber sitting next to the rail tracks? Prices are just being inflated as the demand is so great.

Great looking garden!! I am in the same boat. Built my shop last summer, ordered material in May. Had to BEG the truss guys to get me my trusses delivered. That is RIGHT when the bottom fell out. By July when I ordered my roof plywood it had gone up by $15/sheet. Feeling lucky!I'm glad I built this in May/June 2020 and not this spring ... yikes ...
That's not a lot of lumber. The trains run at night now so people don't see them but they often will have 3 or more cars loaded with lumber. That's every day. Then that lumber gets sent all across the east coast. If anything there's a problem finding the trucks to keep it moving. Now if there were hundreds or even thousands of places like that then, ok, maybe.
You should change your screen name to" .40 Retention.....For what it's worth, we typically run our treating plants 24/7 but have had to shut down here and there because we're having trouble getting the white lumber. I haven't had to treat the past 3 weekends. We typically won't have 3 weekends out of the whole year it doesn't run.
