Salem Barn Builders

The capital of the state of Oregon and the seat of Marion County, Salem is best known for its role in government, although the surrounding area is Oregon’s most agriculturally productive. DC Builders serves this agricultural tradition with the design and construction of one-of-a-kind wood barns, barn homes, covered and indoor riding arenas, and equestrian facilities.

Specializing in timber frame and post and beam designs crafted from Oregon’s finest lumber, our in-house design team can make your dreams a reality. Our experienced crews can tackle any project large or small, whether it’s a timber frame pavilion for outdoor entertaining, an original barn design, or a customized pre-engineered building package from DC Structures.

We also specialize in custom workshops, garages, and barns with living quarters. Whether you’re looking for a home for your family, your horses, or both, DC Builders offers an exciting custom design process that ensures your barn will meet your unique needs. With headquarters less than an hour north of Salem near Boring, Oregon, you can rest easy knowing you’re working with a contractor with a local presence and a deep understanding of state and county regulations.

This custom built apartment barn was built at the beautiful Last Chance Ranch.

West Linn Custom Barn


We started the design process with the client back in September of 2010. The result was a stunning timber frame barn and a great place to spend time with friends and family. We framed the structure with canyon gold lumber and finished the exterior with cedar batten and board siding and a 4″ thick Columbia basalt wainscoting (around 3 sides) with a stone sitting area under one of the shed roofs.

Portland Millwork supplied the entry doors and Classic Equine provided the stall fronts, partitions, and dutch doors. We finished the stalls with Brazilian hardwood and installed Nelson waterers and ComfortStall flooring in this spacious 4 stall barn. We incorporated a 12′ x 18′ tack room with a sheetrock finish and 1″ x 4″ pine wainscoting (up 5′).
