Cedar is on sale right now (last day). So I whipped out my plastic and special ordered the lot. The actual price for lumber is $1,239. Might spend a few more pennies on some wood glue; nails we got. So another $150 will finish out the project handsomely.
Some have already sent checks for the project. I've told everyone else to get those checks to me before the end of the month. I will generate thank you letters for tax records in due course.
