    Default Wooden Building Materials

    Are wooden building materials (2X4s, plywood, exterior siding) sourced in the DR or imported and subject to duty?

    Huge selection. Ochoa is one of the biggest two or three importers of building wood. they even have a "Womanizing®" operation to treat woods. And all wood used here is imported.

    "Womanizing®" ?????

    I agree, too much rain. We had our turn at a wild thunderstorm today. Hit the power pole outside our house ... took out one inverter, one modem and one UPS. Hubby had all up and running in about half an hour again. Bless him, he has a spare of everything. Now we're waiting for Edenorte to fix the transformer ..

    It's like your a kid in a candy store. And the funny part is that it's cheap because they have what you need, especially with you and your discounts.


    Sorry to hear that the weather held your match down...... but if that keeps up you'll have enough to buy a Mac plus maybe I can beat you next time with a loooooong layoff.

    Do a search on importing to the DR. No-one really knows.

    Nothing simpler, old man.

    Simply apply the following "shortcut for the simple" and purchase/import in an informed fashion.

    When p/r+.75 is less than 31, just add $45/board ft. Since p/r+.75 hasn't dropped below 889 in the past 14 years, you should now see that you knew the answer the whole time!

    Duh.
