We've featured some interesting lumberyard owners in past My Yardsticks articles: An owner who braves sub-zero temperatures in Alaska. A dealer who doubles as a Big Ten ref. A man known as "The Pilot at Pilot Lumber."

The list is long and varied, but all the LBM owners we speak with share the same sense of pride and accomplishment for the unique way they do things.

So, what about you? Do you do something special you'd like to share with our readers? Got a different way of doing business, or an interesting hobby outside of selling building materials? Tell us by e-mailing assistant editors Erin Ansley or Tim Regan.

If you do a good job convincing us, you and your business might just end up in an issue of PROSALES.
