They have a deep concern for the environment and the protection of the land. They want their barns to last for generations while still ensuring that healthy forests and a clean environment will be part of their legacy. Not only was wood the traditional building material that was used for barns, but because wood grows naturally, and uses energy from the sun, it is the only major building material thats renewable, re-usable and sustainable.

Wood outperforms other building materials regarding energy use, air pollution, and greenhouse gases. Wood is also actively promoted by the USDA as a superior green building material.Sand Creek Post and Beam chooses to use Eastern Red Cedar, which is naturally resistant to decay, rot, and insects. Eastern Red Cedar also offers the flexibility of wood making it an ideal building material for high wind requirements, and earthquake safety.As part of their efforts to be good stewards and help with reforestation of the land, Sand Creek Post and Beam pledges to donate ten lodge pole pine or Douglas fir trees in their customers name when they purchase a barn kit from them.
