Building A Second Yard!Luke2022-11-16T15:13:09-08:00
The Lumber Baron is excited to announce the completion of a new 3.5 acre site!
Our second yard, The Lumber Baron Richmond, located at 1140 Harbour Way South, has 12,000 square feet of indoor storage, a 4000 square foot showroom space and many “new” reclaimed product offerings including flooring, large beams, mantels, and gorgeous, urban salvaged, live edge slabs. Our goal was to show off the natural beauty of our reclaimed material in ways that can easily be replicated in our customers’ projects. We hope the showroom space will act as a reclaimed lumber mecca for homeowners, designers, and contractors alike. The Lumber Baron Richmond opened as of November 2nd, 2021, Tuesday-Friday, 9am – 3pm. The Lumber Baron Albany will remain open with the same M-Sat hours. We would like to thank you for your continued support over the last 45 years. We realize this expansion would not be possible without our dedicated customers and hope the separation of slabs/reclaimed materials and new lumber products by location, will make your shopping experience with us simpler and more enjoyable.

It took a while (to say the least) but full scale construction started in late 2017. Pictured is the construction crew clearing the site. There were over 8,000 tons of existing concrete foundations, curbs, and walls that needed to be demoed at our new location. Once the slabs were broken up into manageable pieces, we brought in a huge concrete grinder. The chunks of concrete were ground into 1″ aggregate that we compacted and reused on site as road base. Reclaim, reuse, recycle.
The foundation for the new/showroom is all set. Measuring 80’x200′ we’re looking forward to 16,000 of covered retail and office space, especially on dreary days like this one.
Here comes the building.
