 Porch entry doors are also repurposed from a media business in Brandon. The interior, however, will be lined with easily cleaned vinyl sheeting, a new product line the Nut House has taken on.

Munchinsky’s steel business, like many other industries around Virden, has felt the pinch with the continued downturn in the oil industry, but he’s adapting, looking forward in 2021.
