Serving the Columbus Area for over 60 Years

Foreman Lumber is a full service lumber company that offers all aspects of building materials and hardware. Located in Columbus, Nebraska we have a large service area. Along with the lumber company we also offer construction services that range from handy-man services to custom built homes, and light commercial construction. As you can see we are a one stop lumber company with the ability to assist customers with our professional and hands-on knowledge in any project from small to large.

Foreman Lumber is owned and operated locally by Craig M. Foreman and Benjamin Foreman. The Foreman family has been in the building industry in the Columbus and surrounding area's for more than 60 years. In that time the building industry has changed remarkably, but the one thing the Foreman's haven't changed is their commitment to selling quality products, and treating all of their customers like they would like to be treated: with respect and honesty! This showed in 2006 when Foreman Supply Inc. was honored in receiving the Columbus Power and Progress small business of the year.

A word from our clients

  • We had Foreman Lumber and Construction build Tom's mother a home at Wagners Lake in 2009. So after our house fire in 2010, Foreman's were the first ones we called. They really came through for us through the demolition and the rebuilding of our house. It was a long process, almost like building a new house, and harder to do as in old houses not everything is square.

    Even though they had other projects going on they always made us feel like we came first with them. They were able to put our vision into reality and more and now we don't ever want to move away from our "home".

    - Tom and Susan Bernstein
  • Choosing to build a new home was one of the biggest decisions that either of us had ever made. We looked around at a few builders and from the beginning felt comfortable with Foreman Construction. Their professionalism and quality was above our expectations and their staff was always friendly, courteous and willing to help with any questions or concerns we may have had.

    They were always aware of the budget and kept us informed throughout the entire process of where we were "sitting". We feel truly grateful to have such dedicated professionals building our home.

    Thank you Foreman Construction for not only building us a house, but a HOME for our family.  

    - Jarrod and Ashley Ridder
  • What a great experience with Foreman Lumber and Construction.  This was our second house we've built, and Foreman's made this home, a truly custom built home. Working with Ben and Craig was very relaxed, with no pressure. They are there to help you make the sometimes difficult decisions that make a house your home.

    The interior details and the quality of their finish work is first rate. From the different crews that Ben and Craig have to their subcontractors, everyone was easy to work with and were interested in your satisfaction with the end product. Comparing this home to other homes we've owned, the quality and build of this home continues to impress me. We are often surprised by how energy efficient the home is, as our utility bills remain low.

    My wife and I highly recommend choosing Foreman Lumber and Construction!

    - Eric and Susan Smith
  • My wife and I contemplated back and forth on whether we should build a new house or not. We visited with a few different builders in the Columbus area. After visiting with Foreman Construction our decision on a builder was decided. From day one they had a welcoming, friendly approach about them. They offered their professional thoughts and expertise on different ideas and designs as well as taking in our own design and style that we wanted in our house. After we decided on a house design they took us to some newer locations in Columbus and helped us with deciding our location. Quality is something my wife and I were big on. Craig, Ben and their team over exceeded our expectations on quality, right down to the smallest of details. When it was all said and done Foreman Construction made our house building experience turn into a place that we now call HOME. Thank You, Foreman Construction for building us great memories for our family.
