How much does a 2x4 cost in London?

Let's say 2x4 x 8ft, for the sake of discussion.

Well, for that matter, how much does framing lumber cost in general? 2x8s 2x10s, etc.

Much obliged.

Planed or rough sawn?

Here's Fulham Timber Merchants' price list for C16 timber. Convert your measurements and currencies accordingly.

It's all metric here, but Wickes (equivalent to Lowe's) sells 94mm x 44mm x 2.4m softwood for £5.83, or $9.33.

Holy shit. Remind me not to build anything in London.

Worth remembering, though, that light-frame construction is pretty uncommon in London and Britain in general; that's what bricks are for.
