Out on the plains of Illinois, it’s the birthplace of original masterpieces, handcrafted furniture and cabinets. It’s where we love to live and work— for you.
The Das Holz Haus facility has expanded over the years, but some things we don’t want to change. Thoughtful organization, good communication, and a clean shop are the keys of our workmanship.
Being part of the Das Holz Haus team gives me opportunities to grow professionally and learn more about industry trends. Great Compliments to everyone for the opportunity to reach our goal of quality craftsmanship.

WE LOVE working together TO CRAFT THE PRODUCT YOU eagerly ANTICIPATE. DAYS BEGIN AS MEMBERS OF THE DAS HOLZ HAUS FAMILY ARRIVE ON BIKES—A healthy, green, and fun WAY TO GET TO WORK!
Systematic scheduling of time and resources cre- ates a structured environment where our family of craftsmen makes your dream come true one deliberate step after another. No corners are cut and no processes are bypassed
Scooters help us move quickly from one end
of the factory to the other, connecting us to
each other and smoothing out the workflow. A volleyball game at lunch break is a wonderful way to feed our creativity and workmanship with exercise and fresh air. This refreshing camaraderie and team spirit helps make Das Holz Haus who we are.
WHAT MAKES OUR CABINETS, LIBRARIES, AND SPECIALTIES THE authentic masterpieces THEY ARE?
That is a story deeply rooted in our German heritage and values.
With a craftsman’s heart and a designer’s eye, LaVern Schlabach began crafting the inaugural Das Holz Haus pieces—like this plant stand— on evenings after his day job in the late 1970s. Browsing through an antique store years later, LaVern was pleasantly surprised to stumble across the plant stand again, and he brought it back home.
LaVern and his wife Dorothy care deeply about serving each customer with the same quality and carefulness they would expect for their own home. It’s the Golden Rule.
Thinking of our team at Das Holz Haus always brings joy to my heart. Every morning they are ready to face the challenges of the day—ready to create the next masterpiece. It means so much to me to be surrounded by so many talented people, each of them an artist in their own way.
It is a blessing that we can be there for each other in our daily walk with God. We want to serve the Lord and be a beacon of light to others. If we have accomplished anything noteworthy, we want to direct all glory and praise to our Creator.
We are grateful to you, our customer, for trusting us with the privilege to help make your dreams because reality.
“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. Finally, brethren whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:7-8
I want to say, “Thank You, God, for the privilege of being part of the wonderful team at Das Holz Haus!”
