Man if it weren’t for having our current house sold and our land paid off and racing to lock in low interest rates, we definitely wouldn’t be building right now. As for the new shack, it wouldn’t be possible if we weren’t able to tear down an old hardware store for materials... so far the only thing I’ve paid for for the new shop/shack is concrete and about 100 studs. Everything else is salvaged material. The the top plates, the braces, the trusses, the wall sheathing and the decking all came from the demo... when it’s all said and done I might have a lot of blood sweat tears and time invested in this thing, but I will have saved 15-20k by doing it this way without a doubt!!!Man you are building a home and a shop right now, dont envy you in the least with the prices of lumber.
7 bucks and some change for a 2x4 wall stud is ReDonkulous
Looking good and I'm sure you are looking forward to finishing up
You have some fine building skills!!Thanks. So ready to get it done lol. It’s hot outside!!!! Not sure why I always decide summer is the best time for outdoor projects lol.
