Description: CO Lumber was started in 1983 by Dick and Terri Conine. It's purpose was to serve as a retail source of lumber, hardwood and moulding for professional woodworkers, builders and hobbyists alike.
In the early 90's Unfinished Furniture Warehouse was introduced as an outlet for quality, real wood furniture.
In September 2001, Rocky Mountain Cabinets Inc., owned by Trevor and Trish Ghee, purchased CO Lumber/UFW with respect for the solid community presence it was, and a vision for what it could become. Our mission is to offer quality wood and wood related products; along with a knowledgeable and helpful sales staff.
