Where do you plan to build Josh?
I'm in the Yucatan in Mexico. We get our lumber from cattle ranches that want more land for the cattle, so they cut down the trees. Usually they just burn the wood, so I'm glad we can at least put it to good use. We still pay for the good stuff, but it's dirt cheap.
We get our ply from Chile.
I guess people everywhere have trees that they don't want. If you cut them down, you can get your wood for free sometimes. Takes a while to cure and you have to mill it and treat it though. Chainsaw and a lot of planer blades :)
That is a good idea you have about planting a few trees I think. I've planted a few orange trees, but unfortunately they keep dying.
lmao about the bug colony
