“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” ~ Ben Franklin
DISCLAIMER! This is not a picture of a project we supplied. This is however an opportunity to show & tell the other side of the “Premium Douglas Fir” lumber story that you may have seen us post here on IG. This lumber was purchased by a homeowner that insisted that they could get a better price on their framing order from another supplier. When questions aren’t asked and there is not an open communication with your lumber sales rep, they won’t give you the full story about what species or grade of “lumber” they are quoting. Sure, we could supply you with a cheaper grade at a cheaper price, but we understand how shipping this poor quality lumber will impact every trade that follows … the extra time spent by the drywall installer, the finish carpenter, the GC who will have to come back when the walls are sagging and the tape is falling off… it’s a butterfly effect that we don’t want to be a part of. We are committed to supplying you, our partners, with premium Douglas Fir framing lumber that has square edges, minimal wane and is straight & true… this stack wouldn’t pass the test.
