A New Year, New Projects!

As I sit here anxiously awaiting what I hope will be a great 2009, I am also way too used to working 2 days, being off for 2 days, so on and so forth. The Holidays, as wonderful as they are, are now behind us, and as we pack up the tree, take down the stockings, and shuffle the boxes off to the attic for the next 11 months, take a look around you.

Those projects you’ve been putting off because relatives are coming; some new flooring for the living & dining rooms, a new wood countertop for the kitchen, maybe even for the bedrooms upstairs…. Now is the time to get a jump on those projects.

Here at Pioneer Millworks, we have taken advantage of the slower pace of business to re-build some inventory in our most popular floors, such as our Settlers’ Plank, and Character Select Heart Pine. We have these floors available for quick shipments, as well as many others. These next couple months are the best time of the year to get those projects done on your house, before the hectic pace of summer, vacations, and warm nights on the patio come back around. Boy, a warm night sounds like a real treat right now, with the whopping 8 degree temps outside!

Our engineered flooring line is up and running in full swing as well, so if you have a basement room to spruce up, we can get you the best in eco-friendly flooring, and ship it to you just as fast as our solids. All of them are made right at Pioneer Millworks’ shop in Farmington, NY.

So Happy New Year to you and your family. We’re ready to help with any project you have in mind – just give Jered or Julie a call, or an e-mail, and we’ll help you sort out the details. Thanks for checking in!


As the year winds down, the Holidays are upon us. We’re fortunate to spend time with friends and family, and we find ourselves giving back to the community as we do year round. Every Christmas, Pioneer Millworks and New Energy Works, “adopts” a local family who could use some help, and that may not be able to provide for themselves during the holidays. This year, we’re giving to a family in the city of Rochester, helping with food, clothing, and gifts that they otherwise would be without. It is a wonderful feeling to know that on Christmas morning, 3 children and their mother will wake up to find that Santa has been there! Even as the construction industry has slowed, we are still blessed to have work, and it is therefore even more critical to give to those in need. We hope that you too will look around and find someone that could use some help this Holiday season.

In celebration of the Holidays, Pioneer Millworks is offering a one-time year-end special: FREE SHIPPING on all flooring orders over 500 sf! If you’ve been considering purchasing a floor from us, now is the time to get your order in!

Julie and I just returned from a very long week in Boston representing Pioneer Millworks the Greenbuild Expo. To any of you we met there at the show ( And there were A LOT of you! ) we thank you for coming by our booth and saying hello. It was a great show to say the least – we met HUNDREDS of people, got to see some cutting edge green technologies, and show of our new engineered flooring. Needless to say, our new product was a big hit – and why wouldn’t it be? We’ve taken the best FSC plywood around, and combined it with a thick wear layer of 100% reclaimed wood, to create a floor that will easily last as long as its solid counterpart.

Glue it to concrete! Install it over radiant heat! Put it in a basement! It truly is a remarkable & versatile flooring material, and we’re proud to be the first company to step up to the plate and make it the RIGHT way – OUR way, and right here in the USA.

If you “got scanned” at the show ( those cell phone scanners were so cool! ) you’ll be getting a link to our digital catalog in the coming few days, in addition to some other cool information. We’re as green of a company as they come, so we’ll keep it to e-mail rather than paper & snail mail. But, in case you missed us, or if you just can’t wait to see some beauty-shots of our flooring, you can download the catalog right now!

We’re excited about some upcoming events as well, so mark your calendar:

February 3 – 5, 2009, Jered will be roaming Surfaces – glad to meet you in Vegas to talk about our materials, just drop me a line!

May 14 – 16, 2009, we’ll have a sweet booth set up at HD Expo where you can visit with us and see our reclaimed wood, and some stellar woodworking from New Energy Woodworks.

November 10 – 12, 2009, we’re back at Greenbuild, this time in Phoenix, AZ. I don’t know about you, but 80 degrees sure beats 10 degree wind-chills in November!

Thanks for checking back – time to relax on my own couch, enjoy a winter brew, and watch the snow pile up outside. Anyone wanna come shovel in the morning?
