Established in 1976, by Bill Harman, Fawn Lake Lumber is located on Highway
24, 15 minutes east of Highway 97 in the heart of the Cariboo region of
British Columbia, Canada.
From 1976 to the early 1980's Fawn Lake Lumber cut rough lumber for
log cabin packages.
In the early 1980's Fawn Lake Lumber re-directed focus to specialty
manufacturing including cedar siding, modular garden sheds, small
cabins, wharves, and gazebos.
During the early 1990's Fawn Lake Lumber again expanded the product
line to include small piece manufacturing. The newest line of products
includes lattice panels, fan and ladder trellis, rose arbours, planter
boxes and patio blocks all made from Western Red Cedar.
In August 2002, Len Sprague and Dianne Johnson purchased Fawn Lake
Lumber with the intention of continuing the quality workmanship and
standards that Bill set and built the company's reputation on - to
provide the consumer with top quality products at reasonable prices.
In 2007 Len & Dianne saw a need for docks to be built with pressure treated
lumber as well as cedar and their buildings to have the option of ranchwall
(exterior grooved plywood) or cedar for siding.
In 2016 Len and Dianne decided to retire and sold the business and property, to David and Patricia Akehurst.
A bit about the new owners, David and Patricia:
In 2015 David and Patricia decided to retire and move out of the Valley to 100 Mile House"... but after a year and a half of retirement, you
get bored. So we were looking for something to do and Fawn Lake Lumber just suited our needs."
Dave has been employed in all aspects of the lumber re-manufacturing business for the past 30 years. Most of those years were in sales of
profiled products to lumber yards throughout the Province. As a hobby, Dave and Patricia crafted wood products to be sold to the public. "When
we looked at Fawn Lake Lumber, it was just meant to be. We are so excited to open this year and start a new adventure in our life!"
