9/10/18 – Maine Cabin Masters stars Ryan and Ashley Eldridge spent the morning touring Hancock Lumber’s Casco sawmill. After using Hancock Pine on many projects, including an upcoming feature in Bridgton, the duo called to learn more about how Hancock’s pine boards are made right here in Maine. Ryan works with Hancock’s Brunswick Account Manager, Evan Beaulieu, when their renovation projects call for eastern white pine.
Evan, along with Ryan and Ashley, were on-site with Hancock Lumber Sawmill Sales Manager, Matt Duprey, as he toured them through the process starting at the log yard and continuing through the sawmill, kiln, planer, moulder, packaging, and shipping areas.
We look forward to following their pine delivery to the Maine Cabin Masters site and seeing their next amazing transformation project that will air later this year on the DIY Network. Thank you to the Maine Cabin Masters’ team for taking the time to visit Hancock Lumber and learn more about locally sourced products, like our eastern white pine boards.
The largest manufacturer of Eastern White Pine, Hancock Lumber operates three sawmills in Maine in Bethel, Casco, and Pittsfield and distributes its world-class pine boards in Maine, North America and around the globe.

Grown in Maine. Manufactured in Maine. Hancock Eastern White Pine.
Hancock Lumber’s commitment to responsible forestry has served as its foundation, enabling the company to carry on its stewardship mission of leaving things in better shape than when they assumed responsibility for them. At the heart of their past, present and future is the Eastern White Pine tree.
100 years is the average length of time to grow an Eastern White Pine tree to maturity. In Hancock Lumber’s nearly 170-year history, only two harvest cycles have been completed.
Hancock sawmills are zero waste facilities, utilizing every part of each log harvested. From boards for building, to chips for playgrounds and sawdust as alternative fuel that helps power its mills. We even generate our own power with a back pressure turbine generator at the Bethel mill that converts otherwise wasted steam from the kilns into energy!
Hancock’s impact to the local economy is significant, including providing 540 residents from Maine and New Hampshire a meaningful place to be employed. We are so proud to have been named a ‘Best Place to Work in Maine’, 5-years in a row!
