Environmental Awareness

Choosing products and construction methods that have a reduced impact on the earth is simple and considerate of our natural resources.

  • Quality work lasts longer and gives the materials used the respect they deserve
  • Advanced framing techniques reduce the amount of material needed without sacrificing strength or durability and improves insulation performance
  • Extensive reduction and recycling of materials reduce our waste material from a typical 15% – 20% on a project down to about 3%
  • We offer Iowa woods milled and processed at our shop
  • Framing and cabinet materials certified as responsibly harvested by the Forest Stewardship Council
  • Our products are researched for origin of manufacturing and embodied energy with preference to local materials with a low amount of energy needed to manufacture and transport them
