The beginning for us was 1977. We purchased King Lumber from Mr. King, who, after many years, was preparing to retire. This King Lumber yard has been in operation since the 1890s, functioning continuously for more than 100 years.
A major reason for our growth is our commitment to stocking large and varied amounts of inventory. We are truly a full-service yard. We have sufficient inventory on hand to supply a builder with the materials he needs, whether he is building one house or several houses at one time.
During the course of a year, we sell enough lumber to stretch from coast to coast. Our inventory is complete, from the foundation to the roof. That inventory includes interior and exterior doors, windows, interior and exterior trim, siding, insulation, sheet rock, trusses and roofing. In other words, we carry everything from ‘soup to nuts.’
We are not a department store, we are a personalized lumber service. Not only are we involved in construction, we work directly with the building community, from the small builder to the largest developer and we service homeowners as well.
