New Home Construction

Michael “Shlomo” Jacobs is committed to creating canvases of unparalleled textures, moods and spaces while making Squirrel Hill the best place to live in Pittsburgh. Over the past 6 years, Jacobs has been gutting and rebuilding many of the neighborhoods decaying apartment buildings and old homes. Trying to keep pace with the ever growing need for high-end housing, Marvista will be continuing with new home construction homes during 2016. The new Squirrel Hill demographic, millennials and families alike, is demanding updated high-end finishes in a safe neighborhood, that is close to downtown, parks, and shopping.

84 Lumber

84 Lumber Company’s origins date to 1956 when Joseph A. Hardy III opened the original ‘cash and carry’ lumber yard in the rural town of Eighty Four, Pennsylvania, 20 miles south of Pittsburgh. Within five-years of its founding, 84 Lumber began an expansion program, opening new company-owned building materials stores with the company’s “no-frills” approach to keep overhead low. As the company grew, stores were reformatted from the traditional warehouse with many expanded to include kitchen and bath design centers, door shops, engineered wood product centers and expanded door and window displays. Today, 84 Lumber operates 249 stores, plus component plants, EWP centers, door shops and kitchen and bath design centers in 30 states and employs more than 4,200 associates. 84 Lumber’s Construction Services Division offers both residential and commercial contractors turnkey material/labor packages for the installation of framing, roofing, windows, doors, trim, insulation, drywall, cabinets and more. 84 Lumber maintains its corporate headquarters in Eighty Four, Pa., where the original store continues to operate.
