Jennifer Smith, Sales

I first started working at Bear Creek Lumber when I was in high school in 97.   I attended college and then moved back to the valley where I got married and then rejoined Bear Creek Lumber in 2005.   I have now been a Bear Creek for 2 years.
I started out in customer service as I worked my way up to sales.
I work handling small sales, quote requests and purchase orders. 
I have done carpentry work with my dad, as he is a general contractor in the valley.  One project that we started this year was the building of our garage.  We used products of Bear Creek Lumber.  Some items I purchased were 2x8 Western Red Cedar, 2x4 Western Red Cedar and 2x2 Western Red Cedar for trim. 
One of my favorite products is the Port Orford cedar 1x6 T&G that we sell.   I love the look and the smell of this product.  Its great for ceiling and wall application for really lightening up a room.

"Hi Jennifer,
The sauna is awesome!! We use it literally every day and sometimes twice. I can certainly send you some pictures. I still have to put the split log siding on the outside and finish the masony facing on the inside part of the chimney but the sauna room is done. Give me a week or two to get my act together and I'll send you the pictures. The pictures won't do justice to the project I'm sure. My favorite part it's the 8x8 vertical beam that I used to secure the railings around the stove. The sauna is a true wet sauna with shower, wood burning stove, etc. "

"Hi Jennifer,
As promised I've attached images of the addition. Kris did all the work himself & not everything is completed.
You may notice in some of the pictures the speakers have yet to be purchased, but, the room is completely wired for the sound system. I've ordered lighting from the U.S. Virgin Island & they haven't arrived
yet, but, I still wanted to share the pictures with you. You did a lot of work for us & I hope they realize what a valuable employee you are.

  Left: This Fireplace mantle was made out of a very special reclaimed Douglas Fir piece. Jennifer tells us: "This mantel piece was made out of a 12x20 Doug Fir Recycled S4S. The customer hollowed it out to fit over the existing fireplace." You can still see some of the bolt holes that helped support what it used to be a hge wharehouse in Oregon.

  Right: Western Red Cedar ceiling paneling , 1"x4" A and Better Clear grade. The aromatic properties of red cedar and its ability to resist moisture and rot make it the ideal material to use in sauna's interior paneling.
