We recently attended a post-construction party celebrating the completion of a bank barn after two years of designing and building.  Our client led the design team as we strove to make her vision a reality.  Collaborating with Archer Buchanan Architecture, LTD and a talented team of Amish craftsmen, we endeavored to create a beautiful, yet functional space to house the client’s beloved horses as well as to entertain guests.

The party was a success, with all members involved in the process enthusiastically discussing their various roles as they wandered through the barn.  We were excited to hear all of the positive remarks over various elements of the project, from the hand crafted metal handles to the impeccable stonework.  It was very gratifying for us to hear our client’s enthusiasm and pride over the finished product.

Under a clear blue sky, a beautiful and edible rendition of the barn, created in cake by The Poppysmack Cakery (Enable Javascript to see the email address) was cut and served.

Here are some pictures from the day:
