Topic tags/keywords: idaho lumberyard hardwood

Hi, all -

Well, it’s official. In another couple of months, I pull up stakes and leave the once-great state of California, my home since birth, to move to the now-great state of Idaho.

I haven’t found a new home yet, but rest assured, it will have at MINIMUM a three-car garage, a workshop, or a site where I can build a workshop. Elbow room is mine at last.

So, I’m curious about a couple of things. Anyone here from the Boise area who can recommend a good lumberyard? I’m specifically interested in supplies of hardwood for small to medium projects, not building materials. And…are there any species of wood local to Idaho that are so plentiful that you can get good deals on them?

Thanks in advance…

-- M. Zimmers

Remember that the wood in Idaho is colder than in California! Sorry, can’t help you on a wood source but I am sure that you will find one. If not you could always go into potato carving! chuckle

Never been to Boise but I which you the best of luck!

I’m originally from Kuna. Not sure about wood suppliers. I think 1/2 the valley is populated by ex-CAs. Good luck with the move.

Why the move from one great state to another?

I move to CA from Illinois about 16 years ago because I got tired of the “partly cloudy” on my driveway. Actually I was made a job “offer I could not refuse” but now I have been retired for 4+ years and I ain’t going back to shovel snow.

I’ve been here, off and on. Was in Boise last week, looking at homes. I hadn’t bothered to reply to anything in this thread, but rest assured…I’m still here (sort of). Thanks for the reply.
