Many of us first admired the strength and soul of timber framed structures peeking through the door of the old barn down the road.


We have had the opportunity to raise some new barns across the northern Michigan landscape and welcome the opportunity to build more.  Whether for storing hay, animals or space for a shop and office a traditional timber frame barn is unlike any other building.  Barns old and new have soul.
