We build all of our products using rough sawn northern white oak lumber and we can supply oak lumber for your farm improvement projects:
*New Construction *Tack Rooms
*Repairs *Feed & Hay Storage
*Landscaping *Wind Shelters
*Stall Walls *Board & Batten Siding
Our lumber is full dimension; that means when you request a 1"x6"x8' board, it's 1 1/8" thick, the full width, and 8'4" long or longer.
Why White Oak?
If you've never experienced the density of white oak, you'll be impressed. The most frequent comment we hear when people see our products is, "I had no idea they'd be this strong". White oak is one of the densest hardwoods available so you can expect it to last 35-40 years (that's a conservative estimate, it's probably 50-60 years or longer). There's no maintenance to oak lumber, you don't need to treat it to improve longevity. You can paint or stain to match existing wood on your farm or leave it alone and it will weather to it's natural color and last many, many years.
We use white oak because of it's strength, appearance, durability and it's one of the few types of wood that horses don't chew. It contains a natural ingredient called tannin that is a preservative but also has an acidic taste so horses don't like the bitter taste of the wood. And the drier the oak is, the stronger the bitter taste. If you've seen what horses do to pine, you'll understand why it's important to use wood they won't chew.

If oak is available and affordable, why not use it instead of other wood that won't last as long, isn't as strong, and is less attractive over time?
