We are looking into finding the best deal on PT 4X6's to try and keep the costs within the amount that we were granted.
Odd since Bressler was ok with it... but oh well, that is a good thing to consider.
I don't think the lumber needs
to be that big, RR ties were just the least expensive concept we considered and the size worked.
With the limitations on what work CAN be done, 2x4's, 4x4's, and other smaller pieces of lumber would probably do the job fine...
Anyway, it seems like this is a MINOR setback since no supplies have been purchased nor plans drawn.
