The Service to call before you call a Builder.

The Mid-Century Modern Rendering

Why call a designer before contacting a builder?  Compare and contrast this barn with the Timber Frame Barn. Both barns are built upon the same basic foundation, with the same Main Floor Plan, but each represents a completely different look.  Some people will like both, others just one, and some neither.  Tastes vary.  And that is why I emphasis the importance of working with a designer first..  Because style matters.  Your style matters.  And that is something that most builders will not prioritize in the same way as will a good designer or architect.  And what are the important qualities of a good designer.  Here are three.  1.  Knowledge of construction.  2.  The capacity for creativity. 3.  The ability to listen and communicate.  The latter to include communicating both with the client during the design process, but also with the guys in the field through the construction documentation (blueprints) produced.  

Now, about this barn.  The stable level consists of 4 stalls, a wide center aisle, a large Tack Room with stairs to the second level, a Laundry/Powder Room, a Wash Stall and a Grain Room.  The Second Floor Level has 2,000 square feet of living area, with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths.  This combination of size and just 2 bedrooms makes for very generous room sizes and plenty of closetry.  Like the Timber Frame, this barn has a see through fireplace.  Additionally, a spacious kitchen with island, an office area, a whirlpool tub in the Master Bath, a built-in book and trophy case, wood cathedral ceilings, two large decks and lots of glass.
