Welcome to a New Year of Timberline
2002


For many of you, this is just another copy of a publication you have received for years. Others will be seeing this newsletter for the first time with this issue. Still others will be getting it after not having received TIMBERLINE for months, maybe years. I hope you all enjoy it.
We have chosen to publish TIMBERLINE in full color as of this issue. This decision was made based on the many gorgeous pictures our customers have been sending us. Black and white just didn’t do them justice. We will be working with digital images so bear with us as we perfect our methods. Please keep those cards and letters coming!
This issue will highlight our company product line with a full product list. Some of our best 2001 pictures are also featured. TIMBERLINE is about more than just Bear Creek Lumber, however. We also regularly cover issues related to the timber industry, the construction industry, and where to get more information about topics builders, and architects, are interested in. We also try to plug our small community. We are located in a little piece of heaven called the Methow Valley in North Central Washington State. We are one of the few towns actually in the middle of the North Cascade Mountains. The town of Winthrop was the backdrop for the Owen Wister novel, the Virginian,which was the first western-themed novel ever written. Its an awe-inspiring part of the West.

Pictured above: The back of the Bear Creek Lumber storage yard on a typically sunny day, looking at products packed and ready to ship.
With 300 days of sunshine per year, its easy to understand why our staff has an upbeat attitude!
Bear Creek Lumber ships all over the world, despite its remote location. After 25 years, we have our shipping down to a near science. Year after year, we aim for consistent quality, in our products, and in our service! It has earned us some loyal fans over the years.
Our website serves as a compliment to what we do -please check it at bearcreeklumber.com for more information about our company. We feature homes and projects that use our products too numerous to cover in the newsletter alone.
We anticipate a busy year. Please let us knowhow we can help you in the coming building season with your projects!

Pictured above: Owner Susan designed her dream kitchen, using Bear Creek Lumber douglas fir tongue and groove, accented with natural fir logs, clear fir beams, copper and natural rock. The kitchen also features an authentic wood burning pizza oven, seen on the left. Her home overlooks the Canadian coast from a San Juan Island hilltop. Stunning views of Victoria Island can be seen from the windows.
