Here’s where some of the high tech comes in. He always seems to know how to add the right gadgets to his builds. This is a pop-out surge protector for easy charging.

Here’s a look at the bedroom. This is the first thing he built so that he could immediately have a place to sleep as soon as possible, while finishing the rest of the build.

    Hey DualEX: You did a fantastic job. You should be very proud of your accomplishments. I hope that doing this puts you on the road just that much quicker in seeing your dreams & goals become reality. Just hang in there… believe in yourself and at some point… you will make it all happen. U.S. Army, Ret. TX

    I am glad he was able to get all of this work & remodeling done before lumber jumped 280% in cost. Lumber has gotten so expensive that a lot of people are putting their wood building projects completely on hold. The only way to force the high cost of lumber to come down is for everyone to simply refuse to pay such high prices for the lumber and do not buy any lumber until the prices do drop back down.

      It’s crazy! As the owner of a homestead we are always needing lumber for projects and so many are on hold!

        Here in Texas… one way people are beating the sky high cost of lumber is instead of buying lumber from brick & mortar stores like Lowes or Home Depot… they are buying lumber from local sawmills in the State. Check out your State and see where local sawmills are located and contact them for better pricing on lumber.

          Yes! We have gotten all the lumber for our homestead projects from our local sawmill. It’s rough-cut pine, but for our purposes it works well and they haven’t raised prices at all. Also keep an eye out on Facebook Marketplace. I got some nicer wood from people needing to quickly clean out and was able to build our picnic table with it. All free.

          Also depends on the type of wood products. The price increases have primarily hit the common construction use lumber but hardwoods, etc have mostly remained the same in most areas.

          While, if you can process your own lumber… Planer, jointer, etc. Then raw lumber can be really low cost. Just have to decide if air dried or kiln dried and how long you want to wait to use the lumber..

          Add, for Facebook market place to look for sawyers and like craigslist misspelled wood names may get you more results. While local, none public listings, word of mouth, etc can find some that otherwise aren’t listed.
