Stop by for a chat some time Don. I would offer a cup a coffe but with this weather it better be a glass of sweet tea! If you don’t mind me asking where do you go for lumber? I’ve been using a guy down in Durant but its a long drive for me. Lucky it is on the way to my Dad’s house in Sherman.

I found this place up in Spavinaw, same problem as you…nothing local and it is up north by my parents. So everytime I go to visit, I go ahead and go a extra 30 min drive out of my way and do a little shopping. They provide the central states woodcraft’s with most of their exotic lumber.

As far as the sweet tea, your on, lol, I go through Ada all the time. We are doing a remodel on a cabin at Falls Creek.
