  1. Dream Barn Ventilation
    Air quality is important for the health and wellness of both you and your animals. That is why our builders design with air quality in mind. When you have Mr. Build building your dream barn, you know that your barn will have proper ventilation, preventing excess moisture, dust and bacteria buildup.

  2. Dream Barn Lighting
    Gentle natural light is comforting to everyone, so Mr. Build considers how sunlight will filter into your dream barn during different times of the day. For electrical lights, we can discuss different options that provide savings in both energy and cost.

  3. Dream Barn Energy
    How will you power your lights, run your appliances and heat or cool your barn? For the serious future-thinkers, we offer the latest in energy alternatives, such as geo-thermal energy and solar energy. After all, this is a dream barn we’re talking about – we want you to love it for years to come. Geothermal energy is highly efficient for heating and cooling large spaces and barn roofs are perfect surfaces for placing solar panels. If these aren’t options you’ve thought of before, feel free to ask us about it.

With a couple choice pieces of art on the walls, you’ll instantly have the classiest garage in town.

2. Custom tool wall. It’s time top stop dumping the tools in the corners and on rickety shelves. Instead, build a cool and functional tool wall to hold all your most important tools.

Throughout the whole process I never once worried about anything to do with the build. Mr. Build looked after every aspect of the building and I couldn’t be happier with the finished project.
