In 2012, Hurricane Sandy rocked the Eastern seaboard, leaving many natural resources damaged in its wake. The town of Huntington needed partners to remove the logs from numerous fallen trees so power and access to homes could be restored. Drawing on his knowledge of proper lumber salvaging and his desire to help his community, Harry purchased a sawmill and began milling the devastated trees for slabs and lumber. Through his efforts, many trees steeped in the history of this great town were reclaimed.
Harry salvaged and milled trees for five months, storing the lumber in his parent’s barn and planning how best to turn his woodworking passion into a full time reality. During this time of turmoil, Urban was born.
Five years later, Urban has evolved from a one-man, pop-up operation into a six-person team. In the beginning, our lumber yard, warehouse and shop space far exceeded our demand. Today the opposite is true. Through local craft shows, social media and client referrals, Urban has grown to become the premier source for reclaimed lumber, slabs and specialty furniture.
