Cost Breakdown

In building the Skerry, I wanted to keep a record of my expenses so prospective builders could get a realistic picture of the costs associated with the build.  A large amount of my costs were in tools.  For some, many of these tools are in their existing personal inventory.  Other than a drill, bits, and a handsaw, I really had nothing.  I wanted to purchase quality tools that would last me well through this build and into the next.  The build could be completed without many of these tools, but I wanted to grow my personal inventory.  Many were purchased from CLC, others from Home Depot.  Please realize that the prices I have listed may have been discounted.
