Our guest for the May 13th edition of PlayMakers Talk Show: Garret Cockrell, Owner, Big D Lumber Company
Big D Lumber Company owner, Garett Cockrell began framing houses with his uncle as a teenager in Amarillo. His uncle moved to Albuquerque and Garret began his own framing company while still in high school.
Garett then moved to Dallas in order to grow his framing company. He began doing estimating on the side for Big D Lumber which led to his working with one of their clients doing estimating, bidding & project management.
In 2004, Garret began his career in lumber sales and two years later began working for Big D Lumber. After moving to a corporate job in lumber, Garret found that the owner of Big D Lumber wanted to retire. In 2019, he purchased Big D Lumber and now has closed on his third location in Burleson in addition to Richardson and Haslet. What goes around, comes around and Garret has also purchased the framing company that he worked for before getting into the lumber business.
