When looking for true wholesale building supply, I feel it’s best to go to the source! If it’s log home building supply or stock building supply. Go to the manufacturer of the product you need.
If you’re building a log home then try and find your local saw mill. That way you know, you’re getting your log home building supply from the manufacturer of the wood. You’re not buying from a wholesale building supply store that has bought the wood from the manufacturer. This way you should be guaranteed of getting the best price.

No matter what you’re building from a small wooden picket fence to a mansion of a home, do your research and compare the prices offered by wholesale building supply stores, to the prices offered by the manufacturer.
