Barn Builders

With its renown for being a place to get away to a cabin up in the mountains, barns are a perfect fit for Vermont. The state has a long history of being self-sustaining, dating back to pre-colonial times, and it is the only New England state that doesn’t border the Atlantic Ocean. Most famous for being the largest producer of maple syrup in the United States, Vermont also has a substantial part of its economy dedicated to agriculture. Much of the agricultural impact comes from dairy farms. Although they are declining in number in Vermont, the state remains one of the largest producers of milk. Vermont’s cold temperatures pose a unique challenge to farmers who need to protect cows and other animals. The average temperature for the entire year, summers included, is 43 degrees. In some areas, it is frequently even too cold to snow.

At DC Builders, we understand the need to design a well-equipped barn that can stand up to extreme weather conditions and keep you and your animals safe and cozy year-round.

Barn Construction In Vermont

Information

To protect farm animals from harsh conditions, the right kind of barn is needed. It must be built to allow ventilation for the animals to breathe while at the same time blocking out frigid drafts. It must also be well insulated. While in many areas, farmers rely on the heat from the animals being enough to keep the barn warm, a heating system is recommended to protect water pipes as well as the animals on the coldest days.

At DC Builders, we have experience designing and building barns for all 50 states. This includes states that are just as cold as Vermont. We will work with you to meet all your technical needs and add all the features you want to your design plans. We also know that in historic areas such as Vermont, looks can be just as important as function. We are able to customize each barn to blend in with existing buildings and the surrounding landscape. No matter what you need your barn for, we can tailor something to your complete satisfaction.
