The nice thing about these custom barn kits is that they are made of wood. Lately, we hear more and more about global warming and climate change, so purchasing a home that is built with natural building materials is a good choice. Sand Creek Post and Beam barn kits are a company that believes in building green. All of Sand Creeks suppliers allow the wood used in their barn kits to dry naturally, and they use no toxic chemicals.

Since their posts sit on top of Eastern Red Cedar sill plates, there is no need for them to be treated. Their cedar sill plates are also naturally resistant to insects, mildew, and mold without the use of toxic chemicals. Wood requires less energy to produce, transport, construct, and maintain over the years, making their chemical free wood the perfect building material for their barn kits. Another good thing about using wood for the custom barn kits is that wood is a natural insulator from the weather and elements. As a result, the barns are comfortable throughout the year. The barn kits are warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. In the long run, this will save you money on your energy bills, and have you being more comfortable in your barn home as a result.

The Sand Creek Post and Beam company have been making barn kits since 2004. You will love the gallery of barn kits, which are used for everything from full-time residences to vacation homes, horse barns to equipment storage, lake houses to event spaces and so much more.
