Meet the Haus of Bischoff
Shelly and Roland Bischoff live on a little acreage just south of Calgary, Alberta Canada. Their story is not unlike others in that Roland's work was drastically reduced in his oil and gas inspection business during the recession. In an attempt create their own revenue stream, the idea of Haus of Bischoff became a reality in 2016!
Roland has worked with wood as a hobby throughout his life and always received compliments on the quality of his craft. Shelly is a Registered Nurse working in occupational health and her lifelong love and hobby of art using all mediums of paint was an additional incentive to combining their gifts to start a new venture. Shelly creates unique, fun and charming original art with acrylic paint on reclaimed wood and loves infusing humour in her animal paintings.
Shelly & Roland not only love the story and authenticity that the reclaimed wood offers to each product, but there is also synergy with their passion to handcraft products from existing material. All types of reclaimed wood and materials are personally sourced by Shelly and Roland who combine their craftsmanship, creativity, and art design elements to their products.
They enjoy the adventure of sourcing reclaimed wood and the people they meet along the way. They frequently head to Saskatchewan where Shelly's dad helps source old barn and fence wood, travel to Ontario to visit the famous Aberfoyle market in search of vintage fixtures and materials or purchase reclaimed wood in the Calgary area in support of non profit organizations. They combine all types of wood and vintage materials to create one of a kind products. Their product aesthetic is considered rustic due to intentionally leaving existing textures, imperfections, marks and even nail heads intact so the story of the wood and materials continues.
Every product is handcrafted by Shelly and Roland for you and is infused with love of all things wood and art. They offer several different collections of reclaimed wood products to add warmth, character and charm to your world. They are known for the fun and unique Christmas product line which has become a favourite of customers over the years.
