Our Creators

Keith Stoltzfus - president, owner, and founder.

A little about me. I have a lovely wife, and beautiful daughter. I spoil both incessantly. If I have the privilege of working with you on a project, (and I hope I do,) they are my team. I am a carpenter by trade, entrepreneur by passion, and a musician by dream. Worn Stair is a manifestation of that trade craft, passion and dream! For more on how I am dreaming and building this passionate business, see Our Story. I am an avid Duluth lover, North Shore gawker, Boundary Waters camper, and dreamer. In the happy event that we meet, ask me about Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Our Story

Worn Stair is an active dream and effort to change the way we do “House.” The dream was born some three years ago as I observed the same bland, even blase` patterns in the residential spaces I was constructing.

Humans absorb surroundings, the environment within which they exist. In Northern Minnesota the majority of our environment is comprised of residential structures, due to the harsh climate. If we absorb our surroundings, what does that do to our distinct nature as humans if our environment is bland? Instead, if structures reflected their occupants individuality, every house would be so unique! It would be a beautiful, inspiring thing, a little glimpse into the persona of each occupant’s identity.

In simple words, each residential space would be a work of art.

This was the birth of the Worn Stair dream - to make each project a work of art. The carpenter in me could build it, the creator in me could offer working design (materializing vocalized or visualized designs/dreams), and the entrepreneur could make a brand that just might start an industry shift
