RESPECT THE PAST - SUSTAIN THE FUTURE
As a demolition contractor, Kurt was in charge of demolishing houses and buildings. While preparing for demolition, he’d walk through the buildings and notice all of the beautiful architectural pieces, hardware, and lighting that was going to be crunched with the house and sent to the landfill. He decided to strip these pieces from the homes and save them for future projects. He stored these items in his garage and held small sales.
As these sales became more frequent people started to call him looking for specific items.
In 1991 Earthwise was officially born. We set up shop in the SoDo district of Seattle. In July 2014 we opened our second location in East Tacoma at a vintage sawmill. It is at this location where we mill our vintage beams into all the re-milled lumber you can find at the stores. Earthwise opened our third location in Aberdeen WA in July 2018. We are excited to be offering our salvage services and reclaimed materials all along Western Washington.
