What's your opinion of barndominiums? Similar supply issues? Resale? Quality?Shaw builds a lot of pretty ****ty houses.
I build a few pretty nice houses.
His costs have indeed gone up, I can guarantee you that. It cost me 28% more in materials alone to build one in 2021 over what it cost me in 2020.
My selling price on 2 pretty similar homes, with the last one being 55 sq ft smaller was over $80k more for the one built in '21, and it took me 3 months longer to build it.
That's not all; it gets worse. The waiting time on windows and brick have more than doubled from '21 going into '22.
Currently 22 weeks to receive windows, and 6 months on brick, if you order them today.
It's really pretty hard to put a number on that, but I'd never go so far as to excuse Shaw Homes for bad behavior. I'm just saying, everything he's saying isn't BS.
