As we strive to serve you and meet your project needs, we’ve enlisted some new folks who we’re excited to introduce.
Andy McQuade, Director of Sales
Andy spent a few decades in the material supply realm with some big-name national stores, guiding client choices for everything from single room remodels to hotels, restaurants, apartments complexes, student housing, and more.
“I’m inquisitive by nature and I like to learn. I ask lots of questions! It was the right time for me to make a change, to learn something new so when the opportunity to be a part of Pioneer Millworks came up, I jumped on it. Talk about one-of-a-kind products in a cool industry. I’m pretty excited to be here,” Andy said.
A modest timber frame home, designed, built, and crafted by our sister company (New Energy Works Timberframers), clad with our Shou Sugi Ban deep char and sporting other finely crafted reclaimed and sustainable woods: the NEW Jewel. The project is completed and officially “home” to Phil and Rocio, who continue to generously share their Jewel and their words:
Phil and Rocio along with pups Luca and Sherlock enjoy a moment on the porch of their nearly completed NEW Jewel. We created their Shou Sugi Ban siding using sustainably harvested larch.

Everything seemed to line up: small house, close to shop, (relatively) simple design, similar vision, seasonal timing, etc. to enable you all to pull off an amazing, wonderful, beautiful, efficient, stunning, one-of-a-kind home for us.
We’re excited to have a new display in downtown LA in the Hospitality! resource and showroom space, the place to see and touch a variety of our wood samples:

“A few years ago, I recognized as a designer the lack of resource showrooms to trade and the value they could bring to our design community. To fill this void, the Hospitality! showroom came about as a place to be introduced to, explore, and learn about new products—a location to grow professionally! We are delighted to welcome Pioneer Millworks to our dynamic list of vendors and manufacturers and look forward to the endless possibilities that the introduction of their phenomenal products will bring to our industry of design.“ — Annika Sandberg, Principal/CEO Hospitality!
We inventory thousands of beams in our yards in McMinnville, OR and Farmington, NY.
These antique timbers are sourced from agricultural and industrial structures that have outlived their use. Some have hand-hewn surfaces, some are rough-sawn, others may feature various colors of paint. All served as the bones of old buildings, many a vital part of the industrial revolution or family farm, and all are ready for their next evolution.
