Phinney Lumber Introduces Our New DIY page!

 Welcome to Phinney Lumber DIY.

This page is for YOU, our neighbors and homeowners, to offer inspiration, encouragement, and fun as you venture into some satisfying Do It Yourself projects with us.

Why a DIY Page?

In our 90+ year history as first a sawmill and later a building materials supplier, Phinney Lumber has served the local contractor as its primary client. As we move into 2020 and beyond, we are thrilled to welcome more and more local homeowners into our store, just like you, and we are working hard to better serve you; this page is just a start!

Connect With Us... through DIY!

We connect with you through social media and our blog, we welcome your visit by refreshing our store and changing our inventory to better serve you, we invite you to engage with us online and in person, and we hope to empower you to DIY with our new page. Let's get to know each other better, neighbor!
