So on a similar subject, does anyone know what the going rate would be for having someone saw my logs into lumber? I need some stuff but do not want to buy due to the above listed facts, and not wanting to pay premium price for marginal lumber. I have a guy about 4 miles from me with a saw mill, he said he would saw what I needed for half the lumber.... That seems way high to me.... Any thoughts?
Thanks.

 

Depends upon what did he use to charge?  2/3's for him?  Seems it would also depend what your cutting.  Eg. white oak verses knotty pine verses walnut, along with 8' or 16' are a few factors come to mind.

Materials (lumber, steel, 2 overhead doors, insulation, and windows) $54,000

Concrete $26,000

Brother am I ever glad I built mine in the spring! Wow! Shaking my head at those numbers, maybe it will level back out next spring and go back to a more normal cost of things.

Ouch, my 64' x 120' x 20', one 12' x 16', three 16' x 16', one 20' x 16' overhead doors, three walk-in doors and only one window, was at the price (within $2K).  However, no insulation, 40' of concrete & 80' of asphalt.

 

I sure hope the prices come down a lot, before I build my 48' x 72' x 20'.

There must be labor included in the concrete total?
In floor heat?

 

60 yards concrete? At 6” thick???

Yes there is labor included, although they wanted to wait to pour until the shed was up. Use the posts as forms for the concrete. I’d much prefer they pour footings and slab and set the shed on it. Apparently that isn’t done much anymore.


Morton came back with an estimate of $181,000 for exact same shed, just an M on the ends....

Wow, must have been a gold plated M at that rate.  ;)

Wonder what lumber prices will be next year?I see lumber futures are down nearly 50% of the high a little over a month ago.

Heard from a lumber yard said wait until next yr and a building salesman say you have a week and its going up another 5%.Well thats for a pole shed so not all lumber!

I think they’ll return to earlier levels in a few months....covid and the covid lockdowns have caused this rise.
