This extraordinary 15,000 sq. ft. community center in Bethel Island, California, is a perfect example of how DC Builders and DC Structures can collaborate on custom residential and commercial projects. Located on a land projection surrounded by water in the private Delta Coves community, this recreational development combines several pre-engineered building kits from DC Structures to form its all-encompassing design. The central building consists of four structures joined by a massive heavy timber veranda, including a 2,642 sq. ft. club room modified from a Columbia 72′ gable barn kit, a 1,767 sq. ft. fitness facility, a 1,723 sq. ft. open-air picnic pavilion, and a 793 sq. ft. restroom area. Additionally, you’ll find a 378 sq. ft. pool equipment room, a custom heavy timber pavilion, and an 892 sq. ft. movement studio intended for low-impact exercises surrounding the main structure.
DC Builders completed the siding and framing for this one-of-a-kind development, along with providing custom design solutions. All six buildings feature pre-stained Western red cedar tongue and groove and board and batten siding. Additionally, the club room, fitness facility, picnic pavilion, and movement studio include stunning heavy timber roof upgrades, with oversized king post trusses adorning the club room ceiling.

Location plays an important part in crafting a custom structure, as the characteristics of one’s property often influence the resulting design.

With our clients’ surroundings in mind, our in-house design team crafted this one-of-a-kind equestrian facility that features an open-air design perfect for our clients and their horses. The two-level horse barn includes six horse stalls with spacious covered turnouts, a large tack room, a wash stall, a grooming and washroom, and a large garage area with room for hay, shavings, and a tractor-trailer. The second level houses a generous storage loft with endless possibilities for future projects. With its Southwestern-inspired design and unconfined layout, this barn-style structure makes an ideal home for our clients’ horses and an even better getaway for our clients.
Customizing your barn to fit your style and personality is all part of the fun of building a structure from scratch.

Inside this highly personalized barn, you’ll find a number of special features designed around our client’s taste, including stamped concrete flooring made to look like reclaimed hardwood, custom stall fronts, pine-covered ceilings, and even an iPod docking station.

It’s not often we get to work on a project quite like the Alex and Faye Spanos Faith and Heritage Center in Dunlap, California, but when we do, it’s extremely rewarding to see the final result.

As an experienced general contracting team, we’ve managed all kinds of job sites along the West Coast and know exactly how to prepare any site for construction, including this site in San Jose, California. While this shed row horse barn might seem like an easy build, our team worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the site met strict regional building codes, including the Wildland-Urban Interface Code designed to mitigate the risk of wildfire on the property. Our work entailed significant excavation and site preparation, the demolition of an existing barn, and installing a fire sprinkler system in the brand-new barn, in addition to overseeing the entirety of the build from start to finish. By the end, our clients were able to come away with a highly efficient horse barn equipped with everything they need to care for their horses, including Nelson automatic waterers in each of the three stalls, ComfortStall mats, and rubber interlocking pavers in the breezeway.
