It has been a pretty exciting January around here! We have had the pleasure of being featured in two publications; the 2021 Community Report for Peoples Bank and the Winter Issue of Premier Builder Magazine – Seattle/Puget Sound Edition.
We are extremely grateful for the support of these two organizations, as well as all our customers, vendors, colleagues, family and friends. When running a small business, every bit of help along the way helps!
Before your next project, be sure to visit us! We ship nationwide!
Grown only in the Pacific Northwest from Alaska south to Oregon, and west of the Coast Mountains, where cooler temperatures and abundant year-round precipitation is found, Alaska Yellow Cedar is a highly prized and sought-after building material choice. Outside the growing region, Yellow Cedar lumber can be difficult to find, as supply is limited.
Because we are located in the heart of cedar country, where both Alaska Yellow Cedar and Western Red Cedar are natively grown, we are able to source top quality Cedar lumber for indoor, as well as outdoor, construction projects. If we don’t stock what you are looking for, chances are we have a relationship with a mill that can make it for you. With shipments of specialty building materials leaving our warehouse daily to all over the US, our customers value the quality of our products and honest business practices, combined with excellent customer service and superior product knowledge.
We recently shipped a custom milled package of surfaced, knotty Alaska Yellow Cedar lumber to New Jersey for this stunning deck and railing crafted by Paradise Knoll Builders of Oakland, NJ.
“Thanks for the awesome lumber you sent us Michele. The job turned out great. People love it.”
We recently received these pictures of our customer’s project out on Hat Island. They purchased the 2×6 Knotty Alaskan Yellow Cedar Decking from us last summer and recently completed the main floor deck. As there is no ferry service to Hat Island, the customer arranged transportation with a local barge company to get him, his truck and his decking over to the Island a little bit at a time.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar is an ideal choice for decking in the Pacific Northwest climate. Naturally resistant to rot and decay, it was used by West Coast Indian tribes for canoes and totem poles. In today’s market place, Alaskan Yellow Cedar is sought out for boat building, structural framing, siding, decking and roofing. Due to its ease of work ability, it is also used for intricate carvings and in making musical instruments.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures of the Howell’s lovely new deck and the view from their little piece of heaven out on Hat Island.
This Alaskan Yellow Cedar was not treated and will be left to grey out, which is perfect for this beautiful Island setting. The integrity of the wood is not compromised in any way if left untreated.
