Today I made a small purchase of timber. when I received the bill I choked,
1m of 100×100 redwood at 12.20 GBP thats $19.6 USD
7.2m of 225mmx47mm pine floor joist at £6.17 per meter ($9.92 USD per meter) thats £44.42 GBP or $71.39 USD
Pro discount reduced this to £32.78 + VAT (Tax) £6.56, total of £39.34 GBP or $63.23 USD
The redwood is ok, not the best or even real good, but ok.
The pine joists are C16 which is about the lowest grade, full of knots and sap pockets
Like every thing else in the UK wood is getting expensive
