Is anyone affected by the shortage in construction materials and computer chips?
For once we can forget the politics because this is planet wide. Thankfully I have two cars, but I was looking forward to buying a pick-up truck this spring. Everything in autos and construction appears to be skyrocketing out of my price range.
Today I was looking at new lots. The price hike is at least 40K. Two by fours that were $4 last year are now $12$! I can't even buy plywood because there is none. In hindsight I should have been able predict the hike and buy my roof shingles 6 months ago when the price was still normal. Fortunately I can buy a couple of years by gluing membrane to the roof, but that's not what I had in mind.
I want to hear how you are addressing this shortage.
Please keep the geopolitical and ideological views out. I am asking for your experience in helping get through a bad situation.
