I bought 2 6X6X10 and thought I was going to die when I saw the price. I was lucky to be there to get them tho. Old men fighting over lumber like shoppers over the $100 Black Friday TVs.

One 12' 2 x 12
Two 8' 2 x 4
Eight 10' 2 x 6
All pressure treated

One 5 lb box of Torx drive outdoor wood screws and five little bags of granite chips came to $250

I'm just glad I have steps and a landing again
