The Timber Shop began with a love of timber framing. Gary Norton knew he wanted to be involved but wasn't sure where to begin. During a visit to South Carolina Gary noticed under utilized sources of the local forests and forest products.
Convinced that there was a market for high quality Southern Yellow Pine and Cypress timbers Gary began his journey building The Timber Shop.
Convincing the local mills to custom cut timber packages geared towards the timber framer Gary soon was shipping timbers up the east coast into the mountains and as far west as Utah.
