We're Open for Business - Just Being Careful
We agree that staying at home as much as possible during this difficult time is the best way to see things through, so we've given a lot of thought as to whether we should stay open for visitors or not. Here's why we've decided to stay open for the time being:
Much of our business is conducted in the open air. Our raw materials are in our lumber yard and milled materials are in a warehouse with plenty of ventilation. We can help you select materials while all of us keep a safe distance.
We typically meet with only a few people at a time. If we all exercise safe practices during those visits, we will significantly reduce the likelihood of infection.
We think if you have to stay home more, it's a good time to work on projects you haven't had time for previously. "Do-it-yourself" projects are great family projects and a great learning experience for the kids.
Being cooped up long-term can be tough on everyone - especially young kids. Our three side-by side country properties have acres of lawn for the kids to romp in while you shop for materials. (Sometimes it's a little muddy. If you bring kids, have 'em wear boots and plan to do laundry when you get home. LOL).
Many of our regular and first-time customers are calling ahead to order milled materials. We can get those ready and you can pick up with limited contact. OR most milled materials are relatively easy and cost-effective to ship, so delivery to your door is even an option!
Show Home and Shoppe
We've completely remodeled a small ranch-style home on our property in Sparta, WI, using many of the reclaimed wood products we make from various salvaged materials.
Now instead of just looking at pictures or small samples, you can see installed examples of our reclaimed wood flooring, accent walls and ceilings, kitchen cabinets and furniture, decor and much more, all made with reclaimed materials.
Experts emphasize the need for social isolation, so we're now offering virtual visit options via FaceTime or Skype, so you can continue to work on your projects while spending more time at home. Call ahead to schedule an appointment. During your virtual visit, we'll talk with you about your project to determine your interests. We can then show you different options, discuss pros and cons, installation ideas, etc.
If you decide to place an order, we can prepare it for you to pick up with limited contact - or we can ship many of our products to you.
You can also take a self-guided tour through the home!
or use the tab at the top for more information and photos.

Treehouse Masters Season 10, is now available on the network.
Check out Season 10 “Rusty Rooted River Shack”.
Used Anew supplied many of the materials for this tree house
in Trempealeau, Wisconsin.
Show host, Pete Nelson and his crew, visited us in Sparta and filmed the materials selection at our location.
It was a blast!
We work hard to find alternative uses for materials that are most often wasted. The material we reclaimed from this garage, for example, may become one of the many products shown in this brief video.
