Our company’s founder, Kelly Paine (KP), has over 25 years experience in and around redwood logging and milling. He’s worked all positions from choke-setter to mill owner today. In 2012, KP opened his first redwood mill in Garberville, California – KP’s Custom Milled Redwood. For a while he was a one man show that focused on selling small, specialty redwood orders through out southern Humboldt County. Today, that same mill has grown to be a ten person operation sawing and selling a wide variety of redwood dimensions and grades through out Northern and Central California.
In 2020, KP & wife/co-owner, Gina Paine, had the dream to expand their business to Sonoma County with the mission to make affordable, sustainable redwood more accessible to residents of the North Bay Area. With the help of oldest son, Levi Paine, and (future) daughter in law, Caitlin Rickard, KP & Sons Custom Redwood opened warehouse doors April 1st, 2021.
Levi’s now 11 years of experience working alongside and learning from KP made him the perfect person to be our General Manager. His knowledge helps our customers bring their ideas to life. Caitlin’s background in sales and eagerness to learn solidified her role as Office Manager.
Today, the drive-through warehouse stocks a variety of redwood dimensions and grades – fencing, decking, beams, timbers, reclaimed split rails & posts, custom dimensions, etc. While stored in the warehouse, our lumber is protected from all of the elements ensuring it’s of the highest quality and durability when sold.
What isn’t available in store can be directly ordered from the mill and available for pickup or delivery within two weeks, even custom orders!
