Office and Entertaining Space

March 5, 2018

A social entrepreneur's carriage house includes an office and meeting space

This addition is larger than the original home. Starting from the spectacular vaulted upper level, this three story bank barn connects to the existing house in a mid-level entertaining and living space, and both sit atop a two bay garage and mudroom. Our clients arrange fundraising cycling events, and use this extension of their home for charitable events.


Barns dot Vermont so I’ve always thought a Barn addition would be in keeping with the historic farming heritage of Vermont. A friend of ours was building a GeoBarn garage with a bonus room in Fairfield CT and suggested I come over and meet with George. I immediately felt that George wasn’t like the builders in CT that are simply salespeople. George was passionate about what he builds, more of an artist working with a blank canvas than a builder. Each Barn is truly a “work of art”. We gave George our wish list of what we wanted in our barn and then George put pencil to paper and he translated our desires and vision into a design that was all we wanted and more.

George’s zeal, passion and vision is infused in all the members of his team that worked on our project: Ryan, Theron, Kjell, Dennis, Rich & Ken. It was a pleasure having Theron & Kjell living in our home M-F, and especially enjoyed Kjell’s cooking on the smoker. Then Dennis, a superb master carpenter, staying with us during the completion of the finish work. The best part was a “Rebel Yell” bourbon after dinner. Then there was Rich, a smart young man who worked in tandem to complete the interior package with Dennis.

I want to thank all of the GeoBarn’s team as they helped guide me as I GC’d the project, an experience that was very fulfilling. As always we made changes along the way and the team worked with us to incorporate those changes into the finished Barn. A terrific collaboration.

Donna and I developed a tremendous fondness for George and his team. The experience and the finished barn exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend GeoBarns as “the” Barn builder of choice, bar none!!
