Sawmill Designs was born in 2020 but its ancestor, Cochran’s Lumber, has been around since 1978. The company was created by two brothers, Mark and Larry Cochran, who were taken with the beauty of the rivers, mountains, and history that flood the Northern Virginia landscape.

Forty years later and Cochran’s Lumber still condenses those beautiful elements into hardwood floors that are installed in approximately one million square feet of homes every year. Despite its growth, Cochran’s Lumber continues to live by its family-owned and operated values. Sawmill Designs will be no different, as its people and processes are deeply rooted in the Cochran’s story. 

Our 50,000 SF facility is full of modern milling and finishing equipment. Our company has invested tremendous time and money back into equipping our employees with a top-notch finishing line. This guarantees that our products are exquisitely made for function, flair, and to last a lifetime.

Over the years, the team at Cochran’s Lumber unearthed an unmet need for wood accessories. The timeless look of wooden accents translates into so many styles and lifestyles. Our quality, custom products will be all online, all the time. We just want to make finding genuine, sustainable wood pieces a simple process—from free shipping to ease of installation
