Barn Building


Custom builds are our specialty, but when it comes to your new barn, you may have a popular or specific design. When deciding exactly what kind of barn you want built, there are some things you want to think about before you plan and throughout the process.

Where are you building?

Consider the usage of the barn and if the land is suitable to support its purpose. If you want a site that will sustain your barn and operation or lifestyle, you will want to make sure it at least has:

  • Level ground
  • Ideal proximity to required utilities
  • Availability to expand in the future
  • Easy access
  • Soil with natural drainage

Building with purpose

If you are building a barn, you should have some sort of purpose for building it. It could be purely for aesthetics; some people just love that rustic look, but have no real use for it. You may have or be in the process of attaining horses and need a living and utilitarian space. Maybe it is just for storage. Whatever the reason, it will dictate what kind of build or style, space design and size that will be designed.

Meet Your Dream Team

Once you know why and what barn you are building, finding a trusted contractor such as Hepler Homes will be your next step. You will meet and get to know your team of contractors, designers, and specialists and start your plans. Throughout the planning there will be a dialogue between client and contractor to find the most sustainable fit while considering the clients budget and all of the desired specifications.

Build that Barn

Once you decide collectively on the appropriate build, the contractors will walk you through the process of the build, what your involvement will be, the materials to be used, zoning or other county requirements, financing options, time frame, and identify people that are involved every step of the way. Any questions or concerns will be addressed appropriately to keep your mind at ease. Everything involved in the process should be client approved and completed with safety precautions implemented to ensure a successful build!
