This product is unique and beautiful,” said Mike Judy, President of Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center. “It is actually taken from gigantic poplar trees and the bark of the trees is stripped off before the tree is milled.

The Seraphim Ranch, a 9,000 acre resort one hour east of Cincinnati in Adams County, Ohio, gives credence to the magnificent creations that God has placed in nature. Built by Carl Lindner IV and his brother Christopher Lindner as a business venture, this ranch was dedicated to the strong faith and belief in God that is shared by the Lindner family. Many suppliers joined together, including Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The ranch consists of two huge lodges and three cabins, as well as an entertainment venue which can host up to 250 guests for weddings, meetings or events. Brush Creek Lodge is 6000 square feet filled with luxurious amenities for men’s groups, fathers and sons, ladies groups, mothers and daughters or family events. Building this resort has been a labor of passion and has been in the process since 2008.
When the Lindner’s began the process, they joined alliances with two other brothers, Chad and Lear McCoy who own a local lumber mill in Adams County, Ohio, the McCoy Lumber Company. The wood used in the buildings was taken from trees in Adams County and milled by the McCoy’s company.

Brush Creek Lodge, the largest of the facilities at the resort, was designed to blend into the country side and creates a setting similar to a lodge tucked into the Colorado Rockies. In order to achieve the look and feel that they desired, the Linder’s called on Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center, the only company in the area that provides real bark siding for exterior use.

“This product is unique and beautiful,” said Mike Judy, President of Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center. “It is actually taken from gigantic poplar trees and the bark of the trees is stripped off before the tree is milled. The bark is then made into different sizes and when it is put on a building, it gives the rustic look that can only be achieved with real bark siding.We purchase it from Bark House.”

Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center has an 80,000 square feet showroom and warehouse, featuring everything from nails and lumber to kitchen and bath cabinets, doors, hardware and even a line of construction wearables. With summer projects thriving, homeowners and contractors begin to look at outdoor projects like decking, lattice work, siding, fencing, railing, new doors and windows. With the recent addition of AZEK Vast Pavers, an entire deck and garden area can be completed with the help from Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center. It is the one-stop shop for all summer projects. While a large portion of their business is selling to contractors, homeowners love to wander through the showroom, getting ideas and inspiration from the numerous large-screen TVs with galleries of photos and projects.

The Hyde Park Lumber and Design Center is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. They encourage architects, designers and decorators to bring their clients into the showroom during the selection phase of any project. Appointments with the kitchen designers are appreciated. They are centrally located at 3360 Red Bank Road, near the Lunken Airport, with convenient access from Columbia Parkway or Interstate 71.
