This barn was one of the most perfect jobs we were blessed to build.
Everything--with the exception of some record torrential rains (5 inches
in 24 hours--most since 1919) went smoothly and the crew worked like a
well oiled machine. In three weeks and 16 construction days we built
this 30x40 auto barn for our client who is a muscle car "junkie." It
will house his three vintage Dodge Challengers which now take up the
entire house garage and will no longer displace their family cars to the
outdoor sun and snow now that they have their new home.
The building features a split level floor at the midpoint to accommodate
a lift that can raise the cars up to the 13' rear celing...which also
necessitated a far taller than usual staircase wrapping around the back
rear corner. With lots of transoms and just a few double hung Green
Mountain windows--this auto barn workshop radiates an elegant simplicity
which we will certainly want to replicate in future builds. Our client
and crew were wonderful...it simply could not have gone better.
George - Better late than never (I hope) – I’ve seen the pictures of the new barn you’re building for Garth. The pictures are bringing back great memories for me. I want to finally follow up and let you know how happy I am with my Geobarn. As you know, I have been planning for years on building a garage to support my car hobby. I looked at dozens of designs and was close to settling on a conventional garage when I lucked into finding out about you and your barns. It really is amazing how everything came together with the end result being a beautiful and functional structure that continues to amaze all who see it. It’s unsettling to think about how close I came to settling for something less. The barn has been done for months but I finally got the cars in just a couple weeks ago. It makes me smile every time I walk in. I thought I’d share a few pictures of the “Car Barn” as it comes to life. This is probably as good as it will look though, as I hope to mess it up soon restoring the green car. Thanks to George, Dan, Matthew, and Ryan. You are fantastic people and true craftsmen!
