Steve & Dave

Poncha Lumber originally came into existence in 1960 as Knotty Pine Lumber and was located behind the Jackson Hotel in Poncha Springs.  In 1999, Poncha Lumber was purchased by the Chelf brothers, Dave and Steve with their vision to expand Poncha Lumber from a small lumber yard into a full service building center.

In 2004, the new facility was built on Highway 50, allowing Poncha Lumber to grow into the operation it is today. The expanded yard and a full line hardware store occupy 13,000 sq.ft. and 3-1/2 acres.

Now Poncha Lumber includes departments which specialize in sales and service for lumber, interior design sales, which includes windows & doors, lighting, paint, cabinetry and insulation installing. Poncha Lumber's specialty, though, is special orders!  In this rural location, we can not carry all products available, so we have developed the ability to order from hundreds of vendors, thousands of products to serve your needs.
