Over the last 60 years, Buck Building Supply has evolved into a large, multi-store company you can count on. Since our namesake, Mr. Earl Buck, retired and sold the business, we have grown from the lumber yard at the top of the hill in Scotts Hill, to four locations serving multiple counties. No matter how much we grow, Buck Building Supply maintains the same values of honesty, hard work and customer service upon which this business was built. It’s a family business with family values, and Steve and Ashley Adkisson continue to run it that way. Stop in and see us, and we’ll show you why we’re the building supply business you can trust!
