Good to meet fellow industry participants on the platform!
My story starts in 1975 working in a small Vancouver retail lumberyard in the yard Saturdays to make a few bucks, $20 a day - big bucks for a 16 year old kid
Worked my way up to the order desk, dealing with the builders and their demands and needs, really got to understand the business on a supplier to end-user basis.
I had an opportunity to work for one of the Vancouver wholesalers in 1977 where I eventually became a partner in 1997 on my exact 20 year anniversary of the day I started at Doubletree! Can’t make this shit up haha.
Since that day we have grown Doubletree from a strictly commodity driven back to back business into a focused distributor of Specialty forest products.
We manufacture and inventory structural roof decking in 2x6 single T&G as well as 3x6 and 4x6 double T&G in D Fir as well as special orders for WR Cedar, Alaska Yellow Cedar, and Hemlock.
We supply remanners and mills and distributors with WR Cedar mill run, rough or S4S dimension, Timbers, pattern stock etc. if you can’t find it, we quite likely can make it for you.
We also are located in the heart of the BC lumber district, and deal with most custom cutters who routinely cut D Fir, WR Cedar and AYC.
We still deal with low grade, studs and commodity but certainly can offer just about anything including mill direct lumber and Canadian Fir plywood.
Thanks for listening,
Please reach out if you have any inquiries we can help with!
