A Local Lumber Yard with a Strong Tradition

In 1933, during the depths of the Great Depression, Joseph and Frances Siwek created the local institution that would become our lumber mill. As unemployment was peaking at nearly 25 percent, Joe Sr. found himself laid off from his job at the railroad. He was desperate to find a new way to support his young family, including new addition Joe Jr.

Joe Sr. decided to do the unimaginable at the time and, thanks to the permission of his former employer, started a new business by dismantling "retired" wooden boxcars and turning them into heating firewood. Loose coal found along the rail lines was also packaged and re-sold to families who needed to heat their homes during the bitterly cold Minnesota winters. The times might have been tough, but so were the Siweks, who had the work ethic necessary to persevere.

Transitioning from Firewood to Lumber Supplies

As World War II was coming to a close and new homes began springing up across the area there was a major change that was happening in the way homes were heated. Coal and firewood were quickly being replaced by natural gas, which meant it was time for the Siweks to adapt again. This is when our company became the lumber mill we are known for up until this day. Our company began selling the building materials and lumber supplies that homeowners and contractors needed to create these new homes.

During the 1950s and 1960s, Joe Jr. and his wife Judy took over the business and ushered it into a new era of prosperity. Increasing the different types of supplies we offered to our customers as well as adding millwork to our business. Throughout the decades since then, our family has continued to grow with the city around us. We have continued to provide our neighbors, friends, and community the services and building products they need to help Minneapolis and the surrounding areas thrive and flourish
