We take great care of the land on which we work and live.
In the original construction of our site, we positioned the buildings in a way that allowed us to keep all of the land's healthy, mature trees.
To heat our buildings we use an outdoor wood boiler to heat a mix of food-grade glycol and water, which then gets pumped through more than two kilometers of plastic tubing. The wood comes from managed forests, shop cutoffs, and our sawmill’s slabwood.
We keep to an absolute minimum the packaging coming into our shop, and source-separate and reuse cardboard for the packaging going out. And, with the exception of the inevitable cutoffs from cabinet production, our entire operation typically produces just one bag of garbage per week.
