Our Story

Heartwood Lumber was originally founded in Ozark, Missouri by Joe Somers in the mid-90’s. Through hard work and with a unique offering, HWL rapidly became the regional leader for all-things-rustic. During that initial time, our most popular product was our log siding and log railings, as people found it to be an effective way to emulate the look of a true log home without sacrificing the challenges that come with real logs.

Mr. Somers passed from this earth unexpectedly in 2007 on an Alaskan fishing trip doing what he loved most. Courageously, his wife, June, stepped in and continued to grow the business, with the help of a core team of employees that had become like family. She was able to navigate the challenging times from 2008-2011 when the housing economy fell flat in the U.S.

Upon retiring to Florida in 2016, Ms. Somers decided it was finally time to sell her creation so that HWL could continue to serve its valued clients with the premium products for which they had become known.

Jon Fife had always had a keen interest in HWL, as he saw it as an attractive complement to another service-based business he owned in the area. An equitable deal was struck and Jon took over in 2017. As an entrepreneur, Jon is excited to grow the current brand and its offerings and expand the business throughout the Midwest.

We pay respects to our memorable past, but we are excited for a growing and fast-paced future! Please let us know how we can become a part of your project.
