After 110 years in San Diego, Dixieline Lumber & Home Centers is opening its first location in Orange County, Ca.—at the former site of Ganahl Lumber in Dana Point.

A division of Builders FirstSource, Dixieline operates nine locations in San Diego County, from Chula Vista to as north as Solana Beach.

Dixieline has traditionally served areas outside of San Diego, including Orange and Riverside counties, but through outside salesmen rather than from physical locations. 

The property in Dana Point had been operated by Ganahl from 1995 (when it was acquired from Capistrano Lumber) until Aug. 4, 2023, when Ganahl relocated to a new, larger facility in nearby San Juan Capistrano. Dixieline is sprucing up the older yard.

Dixieline began hiring sales personnel in March and started advertising positons for supervisory and yard workers in April. Already hired to ouside sales are Kurt McFall, formerly with Pella Corp., and Aaron Castaneda, previously with ARDEX and Jones Wholesale Lumber. The opening is expected some time in June.

According to Dixieline, “This marks an exciting new chapter for our company as we bring our expertise and commitment to excellence to the vibrant communities of Orange County. We look forward to serving and connecting with our new customers in this thriving region.”
