About Our Company and Us

We began in 1971 as Wood, Steel & Glas (the Dutch spelling). My father, architect Wilfred Armster, decided to develop his practice in designing and building with Atlantic White Cedar. To ensure access to quality material, custom milling, and steady income, he started the mill with Sarah, our mother.

As our company and our family grew, we worked together and were inspired to branch into other areas. Architecture, reclaimed wood, hardwoods, flooring, and countertops.

We changed names to White Cedar Lumber Company for clarity, to match our original URL, and for SEO dynamics.
