    Default Cabin Logs Lumber Yard

    We are going to be building a new home near Talkeetna this spring.
    I have talked to Poppert Milling in Wasilla about logs.
    Is there anywhere else in the general area that would be recommended?
    Thanks,

    Is this something that you are doing or going to contract out?

    You might talk to Mark Stahl at Denali Log and Lumber if you are looking for logs or D-logs. He's about 2 miles north of the Talkeetna cutoff on the Parks Highway. I own Moores' Hardware and Building Supply, first place on the left once you turn onto the Talkeetna Spur Rd.. I sell just about everything else other than raw or D-logs.

    I would definitely talk to Mark Stahl. I built with D logs 3 years ago, and went with Popperts because I drove by it many times and at the time it seemed pretty handy. I wasnt aware of Mark's operation at the time. I lined up delivery dates with Popperts, padding my start date by 30 days. Even with 30 days extra, I had to beg him for every piece of wood I got (I ordered my logs a year in advance). After talking to several others, I found out that was pretty much the standard there.
    I've since ordered a lot of lumber from Mark and been very satisfied. I've taken logs in and asked him to mill them, he does it while I wait. He's milled tongue and groove cottonwood for me, dimensional lumber for trim, loft beams, even delivered them for me. I've been very satisfied with everything I've gotten from Mark, I just wish I would have got my D logs from him.

    Oh and i cant forget Moore's, they've always been extremely helpful as well, Shane has answered every question I've had, I actually try to find a reason to go there every day!
    Spend your money near Talkeetna, the service is so much better, I love that place!

    Yes,
    After talking with Mark we will be getting our logs from him.
    We have dealt with Poppert over the last couple years and it is always a hassle.
    And Moore's we have already spent a good portion of money there and will continue.
    Always good personal service.
    Thanks for the information.

    How far from Talkeetna is your land? Will you be off grid? Full time home?
    If youre interested in a chinking gun and some backer rod once you get rolling, let me know. I'm gonna have a bunch leftover.

    +1 for logging and milling out of Dry Creek, may cost a little more to have them trucked over but very good quality, I'm getting a load delivered on the 19th. Friendly, accommodating staff, they have good tongue and groove too. www.loggingandmilling.com .
