Old Fashioned Post & Beam Construction
We had already spent more than a year touring barns and, looking at barn photos on the Internet and perusing barn building books. We finally agreed we would like an old fashioned post and beam construction. We contacted a number of companies who provide this service. We received an invitation from Harmony to come visit and see first-hand what they do. We brought our preliminary plan and a list of “must haves/would like to have.” A three day weekend in beautiful NC was combined with working personally with the Harmony staff to come up with a spectacular barn design. We already knew we wanted 12’x12′ stalls and had already purchased custom stall fronts, stall doors and stall windows as well as the barn doors. Harmony did not bat an eye at working directly with the engineers at Lucas Equine to make sure the two designs meshed perfectly. (And they did!). We wanted a square barn. This is a bit out of the norm. The Harmony engineers jumped through every hoop to make sure our barn would be structurally sound and visually pleasing. We were included on every aspect of our barn’s design with complete explanations any time a change was needed. We chose the option of having a crew from Harmony come with our barn kit to help in framing. We cannot praise this experience enough! The young men who came were professional, extremely competent, polite and personable. Building our beautiful equine barn was an exciting event for our family. The Harmony Timberworks company and their staff shared our enthusiasm and offered help at every turn. We intend to build another barn on our property. We look forward to working on the new project with Harmony!
