Jennifer Rodgers has always dreamed of building a new home.

She lived in Copley for some 20 years and sold her home in September to temporarily move in with her fiancé, Mike, in Maple Heights while they build a new home in Stow.

Rodgers, who turned 60 not that long ago, said they have been dreaming and planning to build for about two years.

A few things they didn’t plan for were a pandemic and the price of building materials to soar through the roof.

The cost of building supplies — if you can find them — is at or near record highs.

The financial blow has been softened some, Rodgers said, thanks to low interest rates, but even those are starting to creep up.
