A Little Background About Us

        Following graduation from Trigg County High School in 1941, Thomas Fourshee spent four years in the U. S. Army.  At the end of World War II, Tommy returned to Trigg County and civilian life as a carpenter which was the trade of his father and grandfather. At this time he found work as a carpenter's foreman at the newly created and fast growing Camp Campbell.

        Following a lay-off in 1953 Tommy found a market for his work in Cadiz as a cabinet maker. In a workshop he set up in the basement of his home on Lincoln Street he also manufactured windows for Woodruff Lumber Company.  Soon various neighbors and family members ask him to oversee the construction of their homes. This was the beginning of Fourshee Building Contractor.

        Lumber and other supplies were purchased from local lumberyards and sawmills. As the business grew Tommy was able to purchase supplies directly from distributors. He then built an office and soon added storage space.  It was from this location that he began selling supplies to the public and other contractors.

        In 1969 the property on Lincoln Street was sold to the Trigg County Board of Education as the site for a new high school football stadium.  The business then relocated east of Cadiz on Highway 68.

        During the recession of the 1980's Tommy began to phase out residential construction, concentrating instead on retail sales and commercial construction.

        In June 1991Tommy retired and the company was incorporated which assured its continuing operation for another generation.  The daily operation of Fourshee Building Supply is now managed by Tommy's sons. Anthony supervises the heavy equipment and earth moving operations. John oversees heating, air and commercial mechanics while Paul manages retail sales.

        This family operated business has a reputation of providing its customers unsurpassed quality in workmanship, materials and service.  It is our goal to continue this tradition.
