Meet the crew
Sam is happily married to his best friend, Hayley, and they have three beautiful little girls and a new baby boy name Bear. Sam is proud of Bear’s name.
Hayley is Sam’s best friend and co-captain of this vessel. When she’s not wrangling four children, she commands Unruh’s social media and leads our charge on behalf of single moms.

Cody is our master finish guy, and one of the first employees to work alongside Sam. Cody’s interests outside of the shop include hunting, fishing, and taking care of our beloved Pete.
Thanks to Joel, you won’t lift a finger getting our furniture in your home. He is our head of delivery and drives the Unruh truck, but his preferred method of transportation is his bicycle. No matter the season.
Scout is an artist with a gypsy spirit that has led her to live in many places. From Italy to New York to New Mexico, she found herself very happy to put down roots here in Kansas City.

Josh is a self-motivated guy who loves new adventures. He is personable, well traveled, well spoken, and all around fun to be around.
Kaleb loves his wife, his daughter, and his Basset Hound, Delmar. He also loves the daily surprises of each furniture project and working with a group of people that he can call friends.
Production ManagerKaleb Kern
Our beautiful stains can be credited to Laura. A self-taught craftswoman, her passion for technique started in her own home, building furniture for her, her fiancé and their 4-year-old son.
Luis is our sanding aficionado who has the most perfect skin due to his vegan diet. He has a servant’s heart, and that makes him an amazing liaison to those who benefit from our Mom’s Fund.
Brittany is from northern Michigan and we’re so glad she now calls KC home. She not only manages her family, but manages our Unruh family.
Matt is another Kansas City native on our team. When he isn’t building furniture with us, he’s got a lot on his plate with his four dogs.
Mike, or “Big Mike” as he is often called in our weekly Ping Pong Game, is not exactly the youngest buck in the shop, but you sure wouldn’t know it by the way he moves. Youthfulness abounding.
Every carpentry shop needs a dog and ours is no different. Pete is the ultimate foreman, mastering the art of sitting back and relaxing while others work.
Although Riley has a degree in business, he quickly found the cubicle life was not for him. He spent a year in Wyoming building barns before returning to his homeland and joining our team.
Grayson was raised in Leawood, KS and brings more youth to the Unruh Production team. He spends most of his time in the Parts Room making sure the builders are set up for success.
