Very helpful staff. Excellent store layout. Impeccably clean. Need something? Ask the staff and they'll even bring you to the section and explain.

Evan and his team in the lumberyard were amazing! I came in with somewhat of an unorthodox request, and they were not only able to accommodate, but did so very timely and cost effectively for me. Great experience overall!

GR Mitchell helped design and build our new front door. We couldn't be more pleased with the result. It's gorgeous! GR Mitchell was a pleasure to work with each step of the process. John and his architectural mill team did an outstanding job. I know they often take on big jobs and we were just a single family but they made us feel just as important. We give them a 5 Star Rating!
