Penn Valley Monitor Barn
Beauty abounds in this monitor-style barn—and given its personalized design, it’s not surprising that owner Leslie Schoradt has exclaimed, “It’s my dream home!” With Classic Equine stall fronts and a stable comfort mattress system inside, this monitor barn is a horse lover’s dream. Gooseneck lighting pairs perfectly with the rich timber framing and striking red metal roof. Features include six stalls, a washroom, and beautiful tack room. Complete with a custom turret and rubber aisle pavers, this barn perfectly complements the Suncrest Vineyards of Traveler’s Rest in Penn Valley. Leslie explains, “What we love about this barn is it’s not just a place to house my absolute favorite treasures, it’s a destination point for us to go see.”

Morgan Hill Monitor Barn
Our California barn builders worked 12 hours per day, six days per week to erect this facility to exact specifications. As owner Joe Leonard recalls, “The process with DC Building was actually enjoyable, which is kind of rare with contractors.” While other contractors had focused on the negative, our own expert Dustin arrived for a walk-through, and explained how DC Building could create their dream barn.

From the Classic Equine stall fronts to the all-wood Dutch and breezeway doors, this barn is completely custom-made. It features a beautiful wraparound porch that serves as a relaxation space and a refuge from the summer heat. Its cedar board and batten siding make the exterior shine, while post and beam framing with heavy exposed timbers gleam on the inside. Our client Joe was impressed with DC Building’s creative finishing work, which included custom-made doors, and cedar trim boards placed in alternating colors.

As these projects show, our California barn builders enjoy working closely with clients to create the perfect structures for their properties. Contact us today to arrange an initial walk-about for your California property.
