  1. Hi. Sorry I cant help you on that one as I don’t do costings or price lists for any of my plans simply because they go to any amount of countries and can be online for some years. Hence a price from a few years ago would not be relevant today and likewise a price from one place may not be the same in another place. Also the types of lumber suitable for any particular job can vary. It is best to get a costing in your own locality.
    All the best
