Baker Lumber gets site plan approval to rebuild woodshed

The familiar D. Baker & Son Lumber woodshed will soon be back at the corner of Pennoyer and Slayton avenues in Grand Haven. City planning commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved the plans to rebuild the company's 15,706-square-foot lumber shed at 720 Pennoyer Ave., which was destroyed earlier this year when the roof collapsed.

Former owner Dick Baker said a large amount of ice and snow caused the roof to collapse on Jan. 31. At the time the building was holding about $300,000 worth of inventory, according to current owner Nada Edson.

In March, the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals approved three zoning variances that allowed the building to be zero feet from the Pennoyer, Slayton and east lot lines.

Architect Denny Dryer said the building basically follows the same footprint as before, and will feature concrete block construction with the skylight windows.
