Mr. EOS Chimes In, Grumpily

He’s in RI and made a stop at a local lumber yard for a little this and that. He was not pleased, at all.

Our builder has told us prices are coming down, way down from peak COVID craziness, but still expensive.

I asked Mr. EOS what that piece of lumber would have cost pre-COVID. He said “in the teens”. 😬😬😬😬

It’s 1000° in the shade today. Even higher humidity. I’m busy unpacking the apartment (still) and trying to arrange what little furniture we brought there to look somewhat decent.

Vacation will happen at the very end of July. The Greenbrier won out. It’s truly one of my favorite places to go. Such incredible staff. The guests are always cheerful, not to mention it’s quite the Red crowd. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 I’m ready now.

  1. All other suggestions aside, I think you chose the perfect spot for your R and R.

  2. They always say the extra 4 inches is worth twice as much.
    I suppose lumber futures have come down, but this guy probably has to recover what he paid (especially since he has a small NE window to boom, nice job Obiden).
    Maybe there will be enough stormy weather and the Feds can reimburse him at 10x his cost. The Feds are helping everyone, everyone’s doin it, it’s the cool new dance.

    1. 😂
      What everyone around us is doin’ if they ain’t movin’ is renovatin’. We interviewed builders nine months ago and to a one, they were all busy busy busy. If you ain’t makin’ money as a builder today, you might think about changing professions.

    1. Hmmmm. I wonder why. You do know this is my WordPress blog not The Substack one. We’re you signed up for notifications on the Substack?

        1. The easiest way to find me is to click on my name in any comment I make anywhere, any blog. It opens my profile and there you’ll see a clickable link to this blog. The Substack blog was a good idea but it was not a platform that was right for my photos and sometime silly posts.
