Coffee Break with Shane Rodgers

A few months ago, Poly-Wood’s Chief Financial Officer took a moment out of his busy day to give us an interview for Coffee Break. It turns out, coffee is not his cup of tea.  I’m not a coffee drinker, but I do start off every morning with a protein drink. I take it heavy on the protein with ice-cold water. This powdery concoction isn’t my … Continue reading Coffee Break with Shane Rodgers

A Colorful Adirondack Porch Makeover

You may remember Our First Porch Makeover featuring our Jefferson Woven Rockers. This summer, we were approached by a friend and neighbor of one of our sales employees. Blake and his wife, Amanda, were wrapping up the build of their new home and the vision for their front porch included POLYWOOD® Tangerine South Beach Adirondacks. Our South Beach Adirondack sits higher than our other adirondack styles (16” seat height) – which could … Continue reading A Colorful Adirondack Porch Makeover

Coffee Break with Cass Elson

One muggy day in late August, Dannielle and I lugged a ton of film equipment over to our brand new 230,000 square ft. production facility on the other end of the Poly-Wood campus. Why would we do this? Because we wanted to interview Cass Elson for “Coffee Break”, of course. Once we set up equipment and the cameras were rolling, Cass spilled the beans: I like … Continue reading Coffee Break with Cass Elson

Fire Roasted Corn on the Cob

A group of us from Poly-Wood traveled to Michigan for a photo shoot last week, and we figured we wouldn’t be true Indiana natives if we didn’t enjoy some corn during our stay. Since we were planning to have a campfire, we decided to try out a simple camping recipe: Fire Roasted Corn on the Cob. Although there are many ways to dress up corn, we opted for … Continue reading Fire Roasted Corn on the Cob

Cooking with Kids: Dirt Pudding

They say “you are what you eat”– and if that’s the case, my kids are giant sugar sticks, with beautiful hair (my wife is a cosmetologist so I have to say that). When the marketing team was looking for ideas to celebrate National Gummy Worm Day (yes, this is a real day that they insisted on celebrating), Dirt Pudding was the favorite. They asked if my kids would … Continue reading Cooking with Kids: Dirt Pudding
