Proudly made in the USA!Posted: August 5, 2019
Sustainable Lumber Company is proudly located in pristine Montana and consists of eleven families collectively working together to handcraft exclusive lines of wood flooring & wall paneling. Each family has a specific custom trade which has been taught and handed down for generations. Expert craftsmanship, family values, traditional woodworking skills, unsurpassed work ethic, and high morals are displayed to the highest standards within our company. Our internal strive for excellence and desire to produce a high quality product is evident in every board. Attention to detail, consistent quality control, and unparalleled customer service is our company’s #1 goal.
100% of our Douglas Fir and Beetle Killed Pine is harvested locally in Montana and strictly comes from salvaged and SFI Certified (Sustainable Forest Initiative) timber. Currently our Douglas Fir logs are being harvested from the Rice Ridge mega fire in the Lolo National Forest near Seeley Lake Montana. This mega fire burned over a 160,000 acres in 2017. Currently our Beetle Killed Pine logs are being harvested in the Big Hole valley which was decimated from the Mountain Pine Beetle.
We know every board, personally. Artisan style craftsmanship goes into every handcrafted floor and wall we produce. Every board is personally handled up to 12 times allowing the opportunity to check quality and detail at every step.Once kiln dried to 6% moisture content, rough blanks are individually selected for grade, character, and color. Only the highest quality wood is used for our artisan wood floors, walls and other products, all seconds are donated to nonprofit organizations. Our pre-finished flooring and wall paneling is hand rubbed and hand sanded producing an artisan style appearance. Hand rubbing insures the highest quality finish which cannot be duplicated by a machine.
We have no secrets and are a very transparent company. We are not optimized like most of our competitors, nor do we want to be. We believe in artisan craftsmanship which cannot be duplicated by a machine. We are not and will never be a huge flooring and paneling company, we believe in people and craftsmanship which is very obvious if you visit us. We physically check quality and craftsmanship at every step throughout our process. We know every board of our handmade wood floors and walls personally.
Our promise to you is to never compromise quality, business ethics, reputation, or service. At Sustainable Lumber we combine sustainable wood, artisan quality, mill direct sales, & Montana integrity. Our company is like family; we look after each other, we work hard & play hard. We’re not in business to get rich, we’re in business to make an honest living and be good stewards of our natural resources.
Thank you for trusting us on your next project, you won’t be disappointed.
