As Tom said, "Everybody loves a barn ... and I have my very own barn."
Our barns are built using rough-cut full dimension lumber, so you actually get a 2" x 6" that measures 2 inches by 6 inches! Our in-house design staff provides custom plans for each barn. All barns are pre-build in one of our production facilities before they are shipped to the job site, helping to eliminate any potential problems with the erection of the frame.
Goes to the Sawmill
It's amazing to watch the heavy equipment used to properly harvest standing timbers in South Dakota. Nothing is done by hand, one machine has an operator that selects individual trees and cuts them down while another removes the limbs and prepares the trunks to be loaded on a truck for delivery to the sawmill. Once at the mill, machines remove the bark from the tree trunks and process them into timbers and boards used to build Sand Creek Post & Beam barns around the country. It's quite a journey.

Builds Custom Guitar Shop
Mark Gilbert of Lone Wolf Guitars decided to build a Sand Creek Post & Beam barn for his shop. This barn was built at over 9,200 foot elevation in the Colorado Rockies. Mark liked the fact that he could build any interior walls he wanted himself, giving him total flexibility for the interior design. He was also able to insulate the outside of the structure and leave the interior timber structure exposed, retaining the beauty of the timbers for all to see. Sand Creek worked closely with Mark to give him the structure he dreamed of and took an active part in designing. Oh, and by the way, the acoustics aren't too bad either.
