With all the news about trade and tariffs, I’m sure that many of you are aware that the cost of certain domestic goods is increasing. Recently, President Trump imposed tariffs on Canadian lumber. Cutting off the flow of lumber coming in from Canada has increased the cost overall for domestic lumber. This is causing us, along with many other companies who work with large amounts of wood, to reevaluate the cost of the items they’re producing.
On July 2, we will be instituting price increases on our wood products to reflect the new realities of our domestic lumber market. We wanted to give those of you who are purchasing your yurts from fixed funds such as grants enough time to place your orders before the changes go into effect. After this two week grace period, we will no longer be able to honor the pricing of our current order forms and our new pricing will go into effect for any deposits being placed on yurt orders.
We hope, as I’m sure many of you do, that these trade disputes will be resolved soon so that we can get back to the business as usual. We look forward to the day when we can tell you that we’re dropping our prices instead of raising them.
