Homestead Timbers Offers Lots Of Custom Products.

With custom products there are some things you need to keep in mind. We will guide you through this when you order. In the meantime here's some basics to consider.


Random lengths 

Some of our products will come in random lengths between two stated lengths. For example our white cedar siding is random 2' to 8' pieces. Some require you to specify the length, like our white pine which is 10' -16' specified lengths. 

Lead Times

With custom items there will always be a lead time. The length of the lead time depends on how busy things are. It is important to take this into account for when you have to order it if you want it by a certain time. We will be able to figure out current lead times so you know what to expect. 

Order more than you need

When custom ordering you should over order a bit to account for any wastage or mistakes. If you come up a little short it isn't as easy as running up to the store to pickup one more board. To get more there would be a setup fee increasing the cost and another lead time. Generally, we recommend 10-15% wastage to ensure you have enough. It is a good thing to have a few pieces left over too, in case a piece suffers damage down the line. This way you would already have a perfect piece to replace it with.

 Minimum orders

Some of our products do have minimum orders but they are very low. They are set to basically one full length of the product.
