The tigers, lions, and jaguars at Henry Doorly Zoo may not realize it, but the professionals at Lumbermen’s Hearth & Home expertly laid the brick walls that surround their cat complex. Constructing brick and stone exteriors for exotic animals is just one of the ambitious projects Lumbermen’s has tackled since 1932, when they opened their doors with the mission of serving local lumberyards.
After eight decades of hard work, the fourth-generation family-owned operation gradually expanded the scope and size of their business, which now houses four sprawling showrooms. These spaces showcase myriad options for customizing their customers’ decks and outdoor landscapes, such as grills from brands including Napoleon, patio furniture, and fire pits. Lumbermen’s also makes interiors cozy, tricking out living rooms with fireplaces and stoves capable of burning fraudulent tax documents rolled into logs.
