Studs for nine foot walls are now 15.00 here. Holy cow.

Used to be able to frame a whole wall for fifteen bucks. "Course, that was a while back.

Was that when Flatfloor was just a wee lad?

The cheapest I remember studs was in the early ‘80s for 89 cents when they were on sale.

You could get the pink ones here for 89 or 99 up until maybe 10-12 years ago. Every once in a while they would be 69 cents, but I would hate to try and build anything with those. Almost all culls. I would invariably splurge and go for the 2.00 straight ones.

I was going to make a raised bed planter for the garden. Pre-crazy pricing for the materials would have been $40 per planter. But now it's $155! I guess I'm waiting until next year for the planters.

we built ours out of crates from a stone job, they worked out nice. I have also seen them built out of pallet lumber

It seems as though the big manufacturers are enjoying record-breaking profits while the loggers and retails are not. Sounds like pure price gouging. If it's true, that sucks.
