A drop in lumber prices has invigorated demand for commercial building projects, especially for multifamily product, Sherwood Lumber chief operating officer Kyle Little told CNBC last week. 

A drastic runup in lumber prices earlier this year created a challenging environment for builders, but the industry appears to be well on the path to recovery from the sell-offs of the first half of 2020. Little told CNBC that the current lumber prices make “absolute sense” when viewed against that backdrop.
