Covid 19, Timber Prices and Us



As the country opens up, so do we.  We have all the doors and windows open (partly to keep cool, of course), but we welcome visitors to the factory and office to chat about their plans and check us out!


Keep smiling, keep sane and keep safe




Prices within the construction industry generally are going up and up driven by shortages and the simple fact that the World is building its way out of Covid - whilst many countries supplying materials are still struggling with the impact of Covid on their own lockdowns.  Quite a spiral.


Timber prices are very high and materials so very difficult to come by, and our quotes have to reflect these costs.  However, we do feel these are unrealistic if you are expecting to build next Spring, when we are pretty sure it will all calm down and there will be some semblance of order.  So don't stop planning your dream home - just realise that we are in pretty odd times where obtaining some supplies is a quest, not a simple phone call - and you may well be able to buy the frame next Spring for less than this Autumn's quote.


If you do need your house this year, we don't have to buy the timber in to make it - we have stockholding that makes it possible for us to manufacture and deliver within our usual 6-8 week lead time at a sensible price - but we have no control over the cost of the other components needed to build your house.
