After topping out over $1700 the lumber futures crashed below the $600 level.
Lumber Futures by Month
Futures prices are easy to find. What I would like to see but cannot find is the historical price of a builder grade 2'x4' stud 8' long or whatever is typically used.
Any builders out there have some 2'x4' prices when futurers were $300, $400, $1700, then back down to now?
How much did the average cost of a house to build rise, then fall?
