About Nichol's Lumber

Carol & Philip Nichols
Carol & Philip Nichols

Phil Nichols Sr.As the owner of the Pinellas Framing and Finishing Company, Phil Nichols had built a successful business on quality craftsmanship, service to his customers, and a likeable personality that knew no strangers. Following the request of his close friend, who was also a key customer, Phil took on the project of building five summer cabins along central Florida's beautiful Withlacoochee River. During this trip Phil felt that Dunnellon, with its beautiful surroundings and more relaxed pace, was for him. After discussing his ideas with his wife Carol, he sold the framing company and they relocated to Dunnellon.

He began serving owner-builders as a general contractor. It was as a general contractor that Phil realized the need for a quality building products supplier in the Dunnellon area. According to Philip Nichols, Phil's son and current Vice-President of Nichols Lumber Company, "Dad was so mad at a lumber company (no longer in business) because they would not pick up a bundle of crooked studs. It was at this time Dad decided he could do a better job servicing contractors and opened his own lumber company. That's how we got started." Nichols Lumber was established in 1980 as a full service lumber yard.

Neal Wingo, Phil's friend from Clearwater, moved up to Dunnellon in 1982 and joined Phil and Carol in the business. Upon Phil's passing in 1997, Carol and Phil Jr. became partners with Neal until his retirement in 2001. Since then, Carol and Phil Jr. have continued the operations of Nichols Lumber, and extend a warm welcome to all their customers and friends.

The commitment to service and taking care of the customer over the past thirty three years is what has made Nichols Lumber Company the preferred building products supplier among many of central Florida's top builders. As the area has grown, Nichols Lumber has grown to meet the demands of an expanding construction market. From a small lumber yard in downtown Dunnellon, Nichols Lumber now occupies twenty acres of prime industrial property just outside Dunnellon. No longer just a local home center, Nichols Lumber has also become one of the biggest contractor suppliers in the area.

Through the years, we at Nichols Lumber have improved our facilities, upgraded our equipment, and maintained the highest quality of inventory. However, it is our professional, competent, and customer oriented employees that have made the difference. Our customers rely on the expertise of every one of our employees to get their job done. This reliance demands the very best of all of our Nichols employees, and we would have it no other way.

The same beautiful surrounding that Phil Nichols discovered thirty years ago no longer remains a secret. As many more decide to move to our area, the demand for housing continues to grow. Nichols Lumber Company is prepared to meet these demands, now and in the future!
