As pole barn builders, our building techniques allow for economical, flexible and timely building options, whether building an agricultural barn, gambrel style barn or monitor style barn. A finished, post-frame barn is more energy efficient and weather resistant than many other types of construction. We are proud to say we have built hundreds of barns and agricultural buildings throughout Skagit, Whatcom, Snohomish and Island counties.
I am just now starting to look for a property. What are some things to be looking for if I plan to add a shop or a barn?
- What will the building be used for?
- How much space do I need?
- How tall should it be?
- What door sizes will work?
- Do I want windows?
- Where will it go on my property?
- What materials do I prefer? (metal, wood, etc.)
- Site preparation is a consideration which has a large potential impact on overall cost. The less ground work you require the lower your project cost.
- What is the access to power, water and other utilities?
- How much work will need to be performed to access the site. Driveway etc…?
- Is the zoning appropriate for your use? Will you need to get a variance?
- What are your long term plans for the property? Will you want to subdivide at some future date? Is this allowed?

Although we offer stalls, we also believe your horse should be outside all day, as nature intended. Horses are healthiest when they are allowed to move around, graze green grass, enjoy the sun on their backs, and socialize with other horses. If a horse is physically and emotionally happy, they are more responsive to you!

“With summer just around the corner, you and your horse are probably gearing up for a busy season. Here’s a list of some important health care reminders you should tackle before summer gets into full swing.
- Spring vaccines. These are the most essential spring items for many horse owners. But do you know what vaccines your horse needs? The American Association of Equine Practitioners has a complete list of core vaccines every adult horse in the US should receive on a yearly basis. These include rabies, EEE/WEE, West Nile Virus, and tetanus. If you plan to travel with your horse to shows or trail rides or other events where he might have contact with other horses, your horse should also receive “risk-based” vaccines for common contagious diseases such as equine herpes virus and influenza (often a combo vaccine called rhino/flu) and strangles. Other vaccines such as Potomac Horse Fever and botulism are geographically dependent but are still annual necessities if your horse resides in an endemic area.
