The design of this project began at our office on a blank sheet of paper and over several sit down meetings before the sale quickly evolved into what we knew was going to be a very unique farm shop and office. The customer wanted many functional features like two separate shop areas and a one piece insulated hydraulic door and he also want a very eye appealing structure that stood out from the average farm shop. Another interesting feature was the use of old barn board siding from the barn that stood where this one does today to finish the interior office space. This building was awarded 2nd place in the nation by the National Frame Building Association in 2011 in the Farm Shop category.
