” $130-ish for framing lumber to stick build”
“Total of $250 for trusses delivered”

I’m thinking that in the time (and energy) it takes you to go buy the lumber, bring it home, unload it, do all the measuring , cutting and assembling, you could have them delivered, set and probably even have it sheeted in the same time. (Providing your son will help you as you said)

If the extra few bucks isn’t an obstacle, I’d order the trusses.
