We believe that every problem has a solution.
We believe in listening to community needs.
We believe that sustainability should be science-based and justice-guided.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Our locally sourced lumber is milled, dried, and dimensioned in-house to be crafted into high quality projects. This keeps material out of the carbon cycle longer as it becomes sequestered in a usable object for years to decades.
By milling this locally sourced material, we also shrink the carbon footprint because our material comes from within a 10 mile radius.
