This one-of-a-kind basketball court and entertainment space we built in Kansas City, Missouri, is based on a Stillwater Barn Home Kit from DC Structures. Similar to the original model, this clear span structure is designed with parallel chord roof trusses to create a self-supporting roof and plenty of large windows that help brighten the interior space. The main level features an indoor basketball court with three hoops and an enclosed storage room that doubles as a gym. Overhead garage doors near the entry create improved ventilation and natural light while providing easy access to the outdoor patio and pool area.
A loft above the storage room offers a cozy entertainment area for our clients, with a ping pong table, counter seating, and a 12′ x 8′ overhead door contributing to its appeal. Inside the structure, you’ll also find soaring tongue and groove ceilings, trapezoid windows on the gable ends, gridded windows above the entryway, and a row of clerestory windows at the rear.
This beautiful tasting room and event space we designed and built in Stilwell, Kansas, is based on an Oakridge 48’ Apartment Barn Kit from DC Structures. Originally intended as a horse barn with living quarters, the structure was later sold and transformed into a highly unique tasting room and production/case storage space with an upstairs one-bedroom apartment. The initial floor plan features eight horse stalls — four to the left and four to the right of the structure — divided by a central wash bay and a tack room with a mud room and laundry area. Upstairs, cozy living quarters with an open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area, an office, and a generous primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom offer a welcome reprieve from the day-to-day.
Though several aspects of the initial design have since changed, the owners decided to leave the former horse stalls intact, creating a unique visual element that also functions as seating inside the tasting room. Our team modified this structure to include a wrap-around shed roof that serves as a covered patio space near the entrance. We also enclosed the side shed roofs, removed the original Nantucket dormers, raised the roof pitch to 5:12, and designed the upstairs deck to include an exterior staircase.
