Barn Geek Local Barn Builder Opportunity


We need your help

We have a dilemma that we need your help with. You see, one of our goals is to revitalize the countryside with traditional barns, just like it used to be 100 years ago when there was a grand old barn on every 40 acres of land.

This is a really lofty goal and there is no way we can do this ourselves. We really only have the capacity to do a handful of barn kits every year. Our problem though, is that our kits have gained in popularity so much that we get hundreds of requests and we can't serve all of them.


Shipping Costs

Barn kits are heavy and they cost a lot to ship. This fact makes it cost prohibitive to ship more than a few hundred miles from our location. Besides, shipping several truckloads of lumber across many miles requires a lot of diesel fuel, and in turn gives the barn kit a big ecological footprint, and that just doesn't set well with me.


I would much rather make the tools and ideas available to a local “Barn Geek” a barn builder who can be trained to build a barn from materials that were sourced locally, maybe within as little as 100 miles of the building site. Or maybe they can bring a portable sawmill in and get the material from the site itself!


The Opportunity

How great would it be to build barns like these...

Do you love old barns? Are you a licensed builder in your local area? Do you have a good reputation with your customers? Do you have a portable sawmill and want to work?


If you answered yes to any or all of those questions, than we might have an opportunity for you.


What you would get


  1. Access to customers in your area who are looking for a great traditional post and beam barn.
  2. Your own web page or mini site on a high traffic site BarnGeek.com that you can share with potential clients, and where customers in your area can find you.
  3. Builder discounts on plans and hardware.
  4. A proven highly desirable product that you can make and market to customers in your area.
  5. Special Barn Geek training probably via video.
  6. Special tools and templates to help make cuts and drill holes. (or possibly plans for these)

Is there enough demand?


We started making and selling these barn kits in 2008. You heard that right, we started doing this in 2008! The same year the real estate bubble busted and property values plummeted. We have grown every year since then. In a down economy, we are one of the few who have grown.


How would you like to be part of an opportunity like that?


Yes I would, how do I sign up?

We are right now in the exploratory phase of this opportunity. We are currently hashing out the details. I can tell you one thing for sure. No matter what the arrangement looks like it has to be a win, win, win. It has to be good for the customer, good for you, and good for us.


Most likely there will be a monthly or yearly fee for listing you as a local barn builder, and having your own mini website on Barngeek.com. Along with that you would get wholesale pricing on the hardware and plans that we make for these barns. You would also get a discount on our design rates to design custom barns.


If you would like to here more about this opportunity and are interested in being one of our local barn builders, then please fill out the form below. We will email you before we launch, and you can get an early opportunity to get started.
