Tiny House Nation Everett House built with Windfall Lumber counters

Posted by Julie Frank at

The FYI network called us last year looking for counter tops for a Tiny House being built for a couple in Everett, WA.  We were happy to contribute. Reclaimed wood for a beautiful and energy efficient 220 sf  tiny house? You bet! We made two tops; one rectangle, the other an L-shaped piece with a cut-out for the sink.  The counters are plank construction made from reclaimed Douglas fir. The wood came to us as beams from a deconstructed building here in the Pacific NW.     If you want to check in out, the episode is called 220 sq. Ft. Romantic Abode and aired on...

Posted by Julie Frank at

Project: Union Stables | Seattle, Washington Union Stables was built in 1909 for the livery business of Benjamin & Maddocks and housed 300 horses who pulled street cars and fire engines, and hauled goods to and from Pike Place Market.

By Martin Bills, Production Manager With success comes recognition of limitations. In our case, we have needed to substantially upgrade our plant & facilities to allow for increased production capacity.  For the past couple of years we've been making the best use of our resources & machinery.  Now we are on the verge of knocking down walls and reconfiguring our production flow.

We are very excited about what...

Production with a melody...♪♫♫♪

Posted by Julie Frank at

From my desk, I can see much of our production activity. The shipping department is the nearest. I like to look over the railing to see what is lined up for departure, both to admire our latest work and to make sure I get a chance to snap a picture to add to our photo gallery. Another reason I like to notice shipping department goings-on is to see the latest wrapping effort taking place.  Heriberto Barboza (he goes by Eddie) builds a custom palette and package for each product before it is ready to leave of our plant. There is...
