Good evening

I just accepted a position in Ft. Worth and will be moving there within a month. Was wondering who all on here was local to the area. I will be moving to the Keller area. Any good spots that have a good selection of domestic/exotic lumber?

Welcome to the world of hot, humid, and crowded….I don’t live there, but my parents did for 28 years…They lived in North Richland Hills…..I can’t help you with lumber suppliers, but I’m sure there are plenty around the area…

I’m originally from South Texas so I know what I’m getting myself into!! It’s Africa Hot there! We are moving from a 1 year stint in NJ. After last winter I welcome the heat!!

Welcome to Texas.

I have found my best deals on Craigslist.
Also “Wood World Of Texas over in Dallas.

I tend to use Fine Lumber company in Austin or Dakota Hardwoods right here in Waco.
