In early 2015, Josh and Laura Scheutzow started an Instagram account and Etsy shop as a platform to sell woodworking crafts and furniture to raise money for their upcoming domestic adoption. A Carpenter's Son was born. Josh and Laura always wanted a large family. They were blessed with two biological sons, but were unable to get pregnant again. That struggle turned into a beautiful, redemptive story that led the Scheutzow's to begin the process of adopting. The agency told them to expect around $35,000  for the adoption.The agency fees were completely transparent, with much of the money going towards legal, medical, and birth expenses.  Over the next several months, Josh and Laura worked hard on their fledgling business to offset these costs.  It didn't take long for people to fall in love with their family and mission - their Etsy shop and Instagram following exploded. The Scheutzow's worked hard and put 100% of the proceeds from the sales toward the adoption. In September of 2015 The Scheutzow family was matched with a beautiful birth mother and walked through the last trimester of her pregnancy hand in hand. In December of 2015, their baby boy was born (a bit earlier than expected) to the loving care of Josh and Laura. After a few tough weeks baby Scheutzow was strong enough to leave the NICU and officially became a Scheutzow!

The family has continued to grow and now includes 4 incredible boys. 

The business has also grown and recently moved into a new studio space at 53 Kingston Avenue, Columbus, OH 43207.
