It symbolizes that we are part of larger organization, over 1.2 million members in 34,500 clubs, promoting the organization’s core values and willingness to serve.

For more than 40 years, Dick Walker Sawmill has help thousands of customers turn their building dreams into reality. While the “tiny house” trend is all the rage these days, Dick Walk Sawmill has been building and selling small structures like portable hunting camps for years. These structures are built with two-inch tongue and groove lumber throughout, including floors, walls and roof/ceiling. In addition, the floor has a foil-double bubble-foil membrane for added insulation and a vapor barrier. This is a very solid building. The sawmill received a call once from a woman who wanted to replace her dilapidated camper with a “shed” to stay in while she was visiting locally. The answer to her dream was a portable deer camp. She has since made it into a “tiny house” that she uses every couple of years when she is visiting from
Australia. In fact, she bought another one with a deck, and now has a tworoom tiny house. Over the years, Dick Walker Sawmill has helped a lot of good customers build great projects with their lumber. Their dreams were all realized with locallysourced materials. Logs in use now were harvested from the company’s own woodlot in Benson, Vt. with guidance from professional foresters at Calfee Woodland Management. New this year are three-inch thick by 24-inch to 30-inch wide round edge counter or bar tops. Although they are a nice addition to a man cave, the first one sold went to a kitchen remodel in a camp. Dick Walker Sawmill is located on Evergreen Road in Fair Haven. Note that the GPS address lists 1000 Evergreen Road, Poultney. They can be reached at 802-273-2077.
