    I may be moving to New Bern soon. Where can I buy building materials beside Lowes? Anyone know where I can get prebuild roof truss's?
    Thanks

    Re: Lumber in New Bern

    I built a house in New Bern 3 years ago and used Garris Evans for my main lumber supplier. I found their pricing and service better than Guy C. Lee which is located on the other end of town. I also bought some nails for my framing crew's air guns at Builder's Discount when Garris Evans ran out. Sorry, I did not need prebuilt trusses so I don't know a supplier for those.

    Re: Lumber in New Bern

    We have several building supply companies in the area but unfortunately I don't recall the names of any off hand. For woodworking lumber I know of Garris Evans and Precision Molding. There might be another. I believe Stuart Kent is also selling hardwoods at his shop in Ayden. Let us know if you do end up moving to New Bern. We'd love to meet you.

    Hi, and welcome to the area! I stock +/- 10,000bf of hardwood for student use and sale to the public. I can also custom order anything you need in terms of cabinet supplies like plywoods, screws, etc. If you have large lumber need for construction or flooring I might be able to help there too - but have to get substantial quantities to make those prices work for you. For roofing trusses, look up Anderson Truss in Ayden they are a big outfit and supply regionally.

    Ask for Bill Nelson (owner), or his daughter Nancy.

    An interesting operation doing custom truss production on a huge scale mostly under computer design and control. I found it interesting to explore their site and those of their equipment suppliers.

    Re: Lumber in New Bern

    I built my home in Pamlico County (although I have a New Bern address) so i mot likely dealt with a different set of inspectors etc. However, here is a link for obtaining a Craven County building permit. It includes the address and phone number of the Craven County Inspection Department...I hope this helps you!
