Our Process

Sand Creek Post & Beam encourages you to customize your barn until it’s exactly what you envisioned. Because customization takes time, we recommend placing your order 6 months before your targeted construction start date. This allows time to create and revise your plans, and handcraft your frame and accessories. Time frames may vary depending on the complexity of your project and are for reference only.


STEP 1: Placing Your Barn Kit Order

  • 20% deposit locks in your price and starts the process.
  • Up to 1 year to take delivery and maintain current pricing.
  • Once paperwork and deposit are received, a Project Manager will be assigned to you.

STEP 2: Custom Design Process

  • Your Project Manager will contact you to review your order.
  • Our design team will draw your initial set of plans for review within 2 weeks.
  • During the design phase, you will have the opportunity to review the plans with your Project Manager and make revisions as needed.
  • Each revision set of plans can take up to 2 weeks.
  • The design process can take 2-3 weeks or several months to “finalize” plans, depending on number of changes from the customer.
