You have a budget and an idea - We will listen to what you want and help put all the pieces together. Barns are pretty simple but have a lot of options.
Send us an idea of what you are looking for, or we can talk through all those choices on the phone. From a phone call to an actual quote takes about a week or two. We promise to help you get as much as you can at a price that works for your budget. Many features and add-ons can be done later by you, and we'll let you know where it's best to save money, and where it's better to hire a professional crew. We are happy to partner with other sub-contractors on your project if you would like to install your own overhead doors, excavate, or do concrete work.
Once the details are settled, you will sign a contract, begin the permit process, and pay a 20% down payment. Engineered roof trusses, metal, lumber, windows, doors, and hardware will begin arriving to your job site within 3 to 6 weeks. Our Project Manager will discuss with you the best location for drop off, and either you, or one of our excavators, will prep the building site by removing the top soil. We can help as much as needed during this phase and answer any questions about permitting or contact your local building department on your behalf.
Allen and Marion County Indiana are the only counties where we, the contractors, pull permits for projects. All other counties we work in allow home owners to pull their own permit, even when working with a contractor.
Once the material is on-site, one of our crews will arrive, augur the post holes, and have your barn framed in about a day or two. Most barns will be built and "dried-in" within 3 to 5 days. Concrete work comes after the building is erected, then the overhead door installation, and then any interior finish work.
As of Summer 2021 - major delays are affecting overhead doors and some windows. Some of these items require as much as a 3 month lead time from order to delivery. That means we are currently building in stages, starting with framing and the roof, then installing windows and your walls when the windows arrive. This is not for every job, but for some specialty items - but don't worry, it's just a barn!
