Building Cost Increase!

Building Costs have bottomed for the forseeable future. Talking to framers they have raised numbers up so they can at least put some food on the table. They are still working for wages basically but prices have gone up .15 to .50 cents per foot. Material prices continue to rise. 7/16 OSB was as low as $5.90 a sheet this summer today Random Length Print is 215/m Portland meaning COST into Boise is over $7 a sheet. My guess wholesale costs will top $8 a sheet by the end of the year. Lumber is in the same boat. A 15% to 20% increase in comodity framing cost is not out of the question over the next couple of months. Stay tuned this could get ugly. Material price have been close or at record lows (lower than wood costs 30 years ago) and mills can not afford to keep loosing money. The market has changed from a (weak) Demand driven market driving prices down to a (short) Supply driven market where enough mills have closed or don't have the raw materials to produce product profitably
