About Us


Cove Lumber was founded by Sue and Larry Miller in 1984 with a commitment to building trusting relationships with its customers and serving the building needs of the local community. The business began with a small showroom, lumberyard, and minimal inventory. Sue managed sales at Cove Lumber while Larry operated his construction business. Over the years, the business has grown to include additional employees, an expansive inventory, expanded showroom, offices, and storage buildings. Most notably, a 146-foot drive-thru lumberyard was constructed to provide customers with a quick and convenient location to pick up materials.

Humble Beginnings


The Next Chapter

In 2012, Tim and Chris Knepp purchased Cove Lumber from the Millers. Tim who was an accountant and longtime customer, currently manages the business with the same commitment to customer satisfaction. Sue and Larry remain at Cove Lumber, Sue as a purchaser and Larry as an estimator and consultant.
