About Us

Reclaimed Wood Solutions Since 1974

Our History

A Sense of Adventure

In 1974, Willie Drake took a small assignment that led him to West Virginia in search of rare American Chestnut among the area’s historic Appalachian barns. Little did he know, this small task would lead to a lifetime of adventures. While combing the mountains for usable wood, Willie realized there was an abundance of beautiful abandoned wood waiting to be reclaimed and reused. Thus, Mountain Lumber Company was born.

For over three decades, Mountain Lumber has traveled the globe searching for rare and beautiful woods within structures that are no longer in use. Every piece of reclaimed wood we mill is hand-selected for its richness in history, character and beauty before it’s turned over to our experienced craftsmen who de-nail, saw and kiln dry every board. We leave nothing to waste; we burn our dust to create the energy we use to run our kilns and heat our facilities.

Although our wood selection changes with every new adventure, one thing remains the same, our unyielding dedication to quality and customer service. In addition to an extensive selection of reclaimed products, we also carry a full array of flooring and rough lumber sourced from responsibly managed forests that have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. By controlling every step of our manufacturing process, Mountain Lumber is able to adapt any of our products to suit your projects needs. For fast installation, we offer custom pre-finishing and engineered alternatives for all Mountain Lumber floors. Anything you can imagine, we can create.
