Baseboard moulding covering the gap between the flooring and the wall.

The look of your home is important – after all, you spend a lot of time there!

So, it stands to reason that you should love every bit of it – from the interior doors to the wood trim profiles. While it may seem like splitting hairs, your crown moulding, baseboard and casing deserve the same kind of attention and love as any other part of your home. And, we promise that updating (or upgrading) your millwork accents will make more of an impact than you ever thought possible.

While settling for any old molding profile may be the norm, your home is your home and it doesn’t have to be cookie-cutter. Why not customize it the way you want? After all, if the wood species of your floors clashes with your existing wood mouldings, it can end up driving you crazy.

To make your home reflect your style from top to bottom, custom millwork and unique moulding profiles are key.

Lumber being harvested as a part of sustainable forest operations.

The health of the world’s forests is important – and not just because wood products are a beautiful way to decorate your home. Forest ecosystems are key to the survival of not only countless animals and vegetation but also all of humankind.

Many people falsely assume that using forest products like hardwoods contributes to deforestation and the destruction of wildlife habitats. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, compared to substitutes like plastic, steel and other building materials, lumber is by far the greenest material there is!

Thanks to sustainable forest management practices, we can reduce carbon, produce oxygen AND enjoy beautiful, natural hardwood products in our homes.

Old home remodeled on Renovation Hunters near the Nebraska Sandhills.

In early 2022, Hal Shaffer and Chris Filardi gave general contractor Kevin Tarkovich a tour of a historic home in Hyannis, Nebraska. They intended to give new life to the property, as the first project on their new Outdoor Channel series, Renovation Hunters, but the term makeover was an understatement for this 19th-century home, to say the least.

Host Hal Shaffer reassured Kevin on the challenge of renovating the main street’s focal point saying, “You can take all the time you want, as long as it’s done in eight days!” So, they got to work on remodeling old homes for their show – starting in the Sandhills of Nebraska – with the help of numerous craftsmen and DIY-ers, along with some awesome brand partners (if we do say so ourselves).
