Below are just a few examples of projects on which we've partnered with local customers in our communities.
Extreme Makeover Oregon School for the Deaf
Withers Lumber partnered with Rich Duncan Construction and Extreme Makeover to rebuild the boys' dorm at the Oregon School for the Deaf in Salem. At the same time, the school's haunted house was rebuilt, which brings in a major source of funds for the school each Halloween. The entire project was donated— every bit of labor, lumber, nails, plywood, siding, hardware and more. John Gooley, Withers Lumber V.P. Sales coordinated the donation of $54,000 in materials with local companies such as Big Sky Construction, Freres Lumber, Hampton Lumber, Boise Cascade, Mary's River, and many, many more generous suppliers. Withers Lumber also provided the space at our Brooks/Salem lumber yard where over-sized 20-foot wide panels were first built by Big Sky Construction, then transported by Freres Lumber's trucks to the school. A tremendous team effort!
"Withers Lumber allows me to treat their place like it's my own," says John Knebes from Big Sky Construction. "Because I had limited room at my job site, my guys had to panelized the walls of this apartment complex in the huge gravel parking area at the Withers' Brooks/Salem lumber yard. Then we trucked the finished walls to South Salem. Withers Lumber really bends over backwards for their contractors — from the day I started working with John Gooley over 20 years ago it's been that way. I get my paneling, lumber and lots more from Withers Lumber Yard."
"Withers Lumber was instrumental in value engineering our materials and making great recommendations on products and applications for the chiropractor's office we were building in Salem. We had a tight budget and without Withers' service it would have been a challenge to make it." —Rich Duncan Construction
Street of Dreams
Withers Lumber supplied many of the the raw materials such as the framing lumber and exposed timbers to Keith Coppenger, owner of KDC Custom Homes LLC, who built The Grand Retreat. This luxury European style lodge received 11 awards including "Best of Show" by the professional judges and Real Estate agents at the 2004 NW Natural Street of Dreams in Portland. Molalla Store Manager, Ryan Brock, also provided Keith with doors and windows for the 2006 Street of Dreams home, doors for the 2007 home, and framing materials for the 2005 and 2008 dream homes. Thanks to the collective efforts between Withers Lumber, the construction trades, and several other building materials suppliers, KDC Custom Homes LLC donated in excess of $100,000 to Providence Child Center. This generous donation was possible through material discounts & reduced labor rates.
Commercial Framing Project
"Our projects are highly competitive and require our suppliers to be aggressive on their price. Withers Lumber provided a competitive bid and service package that was unmatched. Constructing this McDonald’s in Fort Vancouver, Washington was a fast track project and Withers provided our materials on time and on budget!" —Rich Duncan Construction and sub-contact framer Don Drulinner
