Thieves Steal Lumber From Construction Site In Denver As Cost Of Materials Skyrockets



Hide your skate ramps, kids. People are getting desperate and willing to do just about anything to make a buck in this wild economy. Lumber prices are putting a squeeze on margins for builders and fix/flippers alike. I’ve heard many explanations for the skyrocketing prices of materials, but none that fully satisfy or provide confidence for the future. We all know something’s gotta give with the current housing crisis, but the question is, what and when?
