About Us


about us

Steen Lundberg & Jody Strauch Lundberg, have spent 14+ years building homes and working in the high end historic restoration business in Colorado.

Jody was born in Lincoln and graduated from the Univ. of Nebraska and decided to move back to Lincoln after living in Colorado for 30 years. “We moved to Lincoln about 6 years ago and wanted to create a business concept where we could apply our previous knowledge and resources in the building and restoration business.

We opened Out Of The Box in 2011. Our business strategy is to hand select the BEST OF RECYCLED, RECLAIMED building products, custom made, unique interior and exterior doors: furniture: one of a kind architectural details & accessories. Our selection is the “Neiman Marcus” of recycled/reclaimed pieces.

All items have been previously enjoyed by others, as a result, they are “Out Of The Box” , primarily recycled from custom high-end homes, remodeled or renovated in Vail, Aspen and Denver, Colorado. We also represent heirloom pieces from Nebraska homes and commercial buildings. Recently we began offering native Nebraska free edge hardwood slabs and barn wood. Some of our favorite pieces in our collection are the architectural items and original art created by Nebraska woodworkers and artists.

We’re happy to have been included in this list of the 7 best hardware stores in Nebraska!
