As a single father, I needed a way to provide for my kids while still being present for my kids. I wrote a business plan that would allow me to start with almost zero in seed money.

Gratefully I met Laura during the startup stage (and she fell madly in love with me). We got our good friends, Jacob Hansen and Trent Ewing to join our business team. Together we turned it into a legit source for unique housewares, reclaimed wood walls, built-ins, and industrial furniture. 

I hope you buy from Calico Slate for at least one of three reasons: 1. Nearly ALL the lumber we use is reclaimed and wherever reasonable, we also salvage high-quality materials. 2. We promise to not be boring, repetitive, or horribly conventional; your product will be uniquely designed and handcrafted. 3. I'm pretty nice.
