'Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Wednesday, May 4, 2016 13A ,iFather, son !te :, am up Maggie Wells Staff Writer mwells@plumasnews.com When LMNOP Designs landed a client to develop a block of dead space in the old Mission Bay area of San Francisco, one of its founding members, Indian Valley born Tyler Pew, wanted to design ' big. ii "We came up with ideas for the space, and knew one i: particular idea -- the fencing i, -- was going to be expensive," ii said pew. i! Typically urban parks and iF public spaces often go with chain link fencing to cut costs. A typical wood fence would ' make production costs high -- , even if it would aesthetically ,be more pleasing. : But all the way down at the t park site in San Francisco, :II Pew had an idea-- and he had I Indian Valley in mind So he l.called his dad, Randy Pew, at C & J Enterprises on :lArlington Road. ] Rather than go the usual lfroute of utilizing Home Depot or other chains selling wood, Pew went home to his family in TaYlorsville and told his ,dad what he was looking for. LMNOP Designs would use salvaged wood and wood destined for firewood for the fencing of the SPARK Social SF -- the name of the 1,600-square-foot urban open space. In addition to the fencing, quite a few structures in the park also would utilize C & J Enterprises' wood: a revamped double-decker bus would become a dining area with table top slabs of wood, a small kid-friendly Wood sculpture, a hexagon gazebo and free-standing lamps. "The advantage of coming up here versus going down to the local Home DePOt is that even though you have to pay the transportation costs to the Bay, you can have odd sizes customized and milled for you," said Tyler Pew. Using the salvaged timber has kept the project within budget. Randy Pew nodded in agreement, "You can do small mill orders." Tyler Pew gets an excited look across his face. It's clear from his demeanor he loves See Project, page 14A Randy Pew, foreground, of J & C Enterprises mills wood for LMNOP Designs -- the San Francisco-based design company his son Tyler founded.

The construction of the lamp posts required non-conventional sized wood to be milled. C & J Enterprises on Arlington Road in Taylorsville was able to deliver on that need.
