Very good and informative article. Have you had a research to see the cost difference between CFS and wood construction in current market in regards to material and labor cost?
Great point Anoush, In current market with big jump in lumber prices compared to other construction materials like steel and concrete, wood construction is losing its competitiveness. We see clients reaching out asking for steel construction. Anyways, light frame wood construction is feasible for up to 5 stories.
Some articles we researched predict lumber pricing will remain unpredictable and may continue to rise in 2021.
Labor cost may also see some increase affected by increasing minimum wages, but that will be pretty similar for all types of construction.
