With its renown for being a place to get away to a cabin up in the mountains, barns are a perfect fit for Virginia. 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, Virginia 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 Virginia, the state remains one of the largest producers of milk. Virginia’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.

Barn Construction In Virginia


To protect farm animals from these conditions, the right kind of barn is needed. It must be built to allow ventilation for the animals to breath 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 building barns for all 50 states. This includes states that are just as cold as Virginia. We will work with you to meet all your technical needs and put in all the features you want. We also know that in historic areas such as Virginia, looks can be just as important as function.
