About Us


Art Schnepf grew up on a farm near Rock Rapids and was offered a job as a yardman at the local lumberyard.  He later became the manager.  In 1947 Art moved to Humboldt, IA and started his own lumberyard.  Four years later he sold that business and returned to Northwest Iowa to establish Schnepf Lumber in Sibley.  


Upon Art's retirement in 1975 the reigns were turned over to sons Dan and Sid.  Today the third generation of the Schnepf family continues to work in the family business.  A lot has changed over the past 60+ years, but the core values that established Schnepf Lumber are still present today.  Personal service, quality materials, and a committment to the community are just as important today to the Schnepf family.  


The most important project we have to work on today is your project.  Stop in for advice, materials, design services, or just ideas.  Our many years of experience are included with every sale.
