Two months have passed since we originally brainstormed, outlined and devised a job description for our Office Administrator position. This process was new to us. For 40+ years most of our hires have been people walking in off the street looking for a job. Are you surprised by this? I hope so. Over the last …

DIY – Painted Mason Jars

Posted in What's New by Kate Whittemore

Simple, quick and really cute! At Home Central we are surrounded by masculine things, dirt, grease, lumber, steel, burps and farts, but when I asked some of our paint experts to do a slightly more girly craft project involving mason jars the end result was much more feminine! These mason jars are simple to make …

Only six more weeks of winter, at least according to Punxsutawney Phil. We would love a quicker end to this brutal winter, but our faith in woodchucks has waivered since a recent trip to Punxsutawney.

I Love My Pet Campaign

Posted in What's New by Kate Whittemore

If not, it was probably because he was sound asleep in the office dreaming of dropped pizza crusts or leftover Christmas cookies. Wyman had many loves, but food was definitely #1. This February …

Ongoing logistics issues have plagued the industry for many months and despite some optimism from mills about the 2014 season, trucking continues to slow us down. Trading has been moderate to slow over the holidays, but panel prices held steady coming into the new year. Mills seem optomistic about the 2014 building season, whether retailers …

Water System Check-Up

Posted in What's New by Kate Whittemore

Having a major plumbing problem sucks! Sorry to be so crude, but losing the ability to wash yourself or your miserable spouse can wreak havoc on an otherwise peaceful home! For this reason, regular maintenance to your residential water system is a must. But do we all make our water heater, pump or pressure tank …

Market Monday – Holiday Slow Down

Posted in What's New by Kate Whittemore

As is typical of this time of year, our business slows and so does business for most building material dealers in this part of the country. Prices have been dropping slightly for lumber and plywood, but mill closures hold prices higher than they otherwise would fall. How does that work? By being closed for Thanksgiving, …
