It’s not unusual in the Fargo and Grand Forks, North Dakota area that make up Simonson Lumber’s market to find a lumberyard that can complete house plans. Other yards in the area do it as well. While not an architectural firm, 90-year-old Simonson Lumber does have an architect on staff and has been drawing up house plans for decades. In fact, when the company started drawing up plans, they didn’t even charge for the service. It was considered an added value for buying the lumber.
