Customer Testimonials; here is what some of our customers have to say:
I love my Barnraisersheds barn. It is 12 x 32 ft shed row barn with 2 12×12 stalls and an 8×12 grooming stall. It has dutch doors on all stalls including the grooming area and it has 5 paned windows. I could have saved money on transportation costs by having gotten a 10 instead of 12 ft width, but my horses and I love their big stalls. It is amazing how simultaneously spacious and cozy this barn is! The ceilings feel very high from the inside, yet the profile from the outside is very modest. It is very well designed and very pretty! Another great extra feature that I opted for are the walk throughs. They are doors that allow me to go between the stalls without having to go outside. Brilliant! Michelle at Barnraisersheds patiently explained all my options and suggested the walk throughs. She was fantastic – extremely knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. The delivery was also amazingly well managed. Finally, the price is remarkably low and the product is great. I loved my Barnraisersheds experience, and my horses and I love our Barnraisersheds barn.

I just wanted to send along a few words of gratitude for the wonderful garage (aka “The Workshop”) that you and your team installed on our property this summer. Because of the size and location of our preexisting foundation slab on our narrow lot, we weren’t even sure if it would be possible for anyone to be able to bring in a prefab structure. We explored many options over the years, from metal Quonset hut type kit, to building a structure ourselves from the ground up. All options were either, too expensive, too time consuming, or downright ugly….that was until I found the BarnRaiser website on the internet. I remember looking at all the variations of barns, garages, and sheds, and remarking to my husband that “it was too bad that we can’t get these in the size that we need.” Even with all my doubts, I convinced myself that it was worth the drive to Saugerties to see what the structures looked like in person. I fully expected to have to make compromises and concessions regarding the dimensions and quality of the building. This was not the case. When I arrived, I was greeted by Michelle, who, once I communicated what we had hoped for in our “Workshop,” assured me that they could customize the size to meet our needs and our budget.
Now that “The Workshop” is sitting proudly on its foundation, it is hard to believe that what was once an unlikely dream is now a tangible reality. Everyone we have shown the finished structure to is amazed at the size and quality of construction. The building looks like it has been there all along…dormer and all! BarnRaiser did not meet our expectations….they far exceeded them; not only in quality of workmanship, but all also in quality of service (from beginning to end)! The whole BarnRaiser experience has been a pleasure. Thank you!!

Hey thanks Dave. Daniel was a PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. I can’t believe those two guys got this playset assembled in less than an hour!
I will highly recommend The Barn Raiser to my friends. I’ll throw something up on facebook when I can get that nice photo. Alas, it has been raining since the set arrived on Monday morning. That didn’t stop the kids from eagerly climbing right on it at 7:25am before the truck even pulled away. Wet, muddy and full of smiles, it was difficult to get them on the school bus that day.
Here’s a quote from my 7 year old daughter,
“OUR YARD IS BETTER THAN THE PARK NOW! WE HAVE OUR OWN PARK!”
I am very happy with the set, and I feel very good about my purchase; I was able to use a local distributor AND support a non-corporate manufacturer.
“It all started with a vision of a Barn-Playhouse for our little one to grow up with. Not ever actually seeing one, we had no clue where to begin looking for it. So we started searching the internet and we stumbled upon the Barn Raiser. After seeing the photo of the Deluxe Barn we knew that was exactly what we wanted! After many weeks of searching our area for someone to build this exact one and for a reasonable price, we were getting very discouraged.
So, with a leap of faith in hoping that the photos of the Deluxe Barn were as cute as the actual barn itself, we drove 7 hours one way to get it. From beginning to end we dealt with nothing but personal friendly people who did everything to make our “Little Red Barns” journey to Canada a safe and happy experience! Was it worth the drive? Oh ya, and we’d do it all over again! There is nothing around here that matches the quality and uniqueness like our barn.
As for customer service, it would be tuff to beat Michelle and Dave. Thanks for helping us make our dreams come true!”

8×10 Deluxe Barn with 12′ Higher Wall
“After extensive research into both metal and wood, I decided on The Barn Raiser two story floorless garage with the gambrel roof. When it arrived, it far exceeded my expectations. The construction and material were superb and they had it set and finished in less than eight hours. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Their prices and quality can’t be beat; and I should know as I have been in commercial construction for 27 years. To top it off, they stand behind their product.”

“Purchasing my garage from The Barn Raiser was a very easy and pleasant experience. The sales people were knowledgeable and very helpful in assisting me in my barn selection. The barn arrived on time and in perfect condition. I was very impressed with the delivery crew and their ability to skillfully maneuver the barn into it’s new location. I am a very satisfied customer and will definitely recommend The Barn Raiser to my friends and family.”

“I was looking for an inexpensive storage facility for several small boats, a snow mobile, miscellaneous lawn equipment and a compact tractor. I originally priced out a steel building and found it somewhat expensive. I found The Barn Raiser from a Web search. Since they were only about an hour from where we live, we visited them and had a chance to look over a number of the buildings on their lot. Both my wife and I were very impressed. I designed a ‘three door’ 24×40 building and The Barn Raiser essentially built it to my plan. It came out exactly as I envisioned, and for about 60% of the cost of a steel building. I was impressed.
Another benefit of The Barn Raiser’s building was having the inside framed out in 2′ x 4′ lumber. This made adding a workbench and some custom shelving a lot less difficult than having to work from a steel building.
I look forward to many years of service from my new custom garage.”

“I thought you guys were great. Available, helpful, warm & friendly, not pushy. You also did a major favor for us that was truly appreciated! You moved our chicken coop for us! We love the shed we purchased. I would absolutely purchase from you again and would gladly refer anyone to you.
Don’t get TOO big! Don’t lose your personal service. But, I do wish you success.”

“We looked at a number of Amish shed distributors and nothing came close to The Barn Raiser in quality & design at a competitive price. The customer service was excellent; the whole team is warm, friendly, and incredibly conscientious. We love our beautiful board & batten shed. We highly recommend The Barn Raiser. You will too!”

“I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how delighted we are with our 2-car garage. Your patience and honest answers to all of our questions and numerous visits was really appreciated. The building itself was the quality you promised and blended right in with our home. In addition, I would like to say thanks to Dave & James for a perfect delivery and install. I found it amazing how they were able to easily move a 40′ building around and set it down in the exact location. As you are aware, we shopped around extensively. The Barn Raiser was the only company that was willing to answer all of our questions, return our calls, and take the time to make sure we were purchasing exactly what we were looking for.”

“We are extremely pleased with the 2-car garage we purchased from The Barn Raiser. We’ve had several comments from people we know on the quality of this garage. It is so well built and we couldn’t believe how professional the crew was that delivered it. It was set up and ready to use in only a few hours! We couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend this company to anyone.”

“It’s hard these days to find a retailer who delivers both product and service the way it was done 40-50 years ago. Well, The Barn Raiser brought back the ‘good old days’ for me with my purchase of a poolhouse, which I will use as an office. The Barn Raiser offered me a very good price and virtually no problems placing a long distance order. The product was delivered precisely as ordered and came exactly on the date it was scheduled, totally perfect and blemish-free. The quality and looks of the shed actually enhanced the look of my home. In essence, the product was perfect, the shed was built exactly as I ordered it and the retailer was friendly and professional. What more can you ask for?”

“When we decided to buy a shed, we looked at several different companies before we found The Barn Raiser. There were so many choices of sheds to choose from and so many options to ‘make it our own’. The workmanship was superior to any we had looked at and the price was right. They even offered free delivery to our home, over 40 miles away! The experienced ‘on-site’ representative was extremely helpful in making our final choices easier. Delivery was right on schedule with expert and courteous men to follow our direction as to where and how to position the shed. We love our new shed and we will tell all of our friends about our positive experience with The Barn Raiser.”

“Dave, James, and the crew did a great job from start to finish. We bought a special use building which required a little extra planning. The building was delivered by tractor trailer as scheduled. It is perfect for our camp ground’s needs.”

“The model garages that The Barn Raiser had displayed on their lot drew our attention. We asked them if we could make changes and have it built on-site; they said “sure”! We contacted an architect to design our 3-car garage, applied for our building permit, and hired a mason to prepare the concrete slab. To make a long story short; we were very happy with the price. The Barn Raiser’s Amish crew built our 3-car garage in only two days! The quality of the work and materials were all first class. We definitely got our money’s worth. We have no complaints. The Barn Raiser staff was all very professional.”

“From the very beginning, our dealings with you folks at The Barn Raiser were very pleasant and friendly. You took all the time we needed to show and explain to us any and all questions we had. You have very competitive prices and kept your word on everything that was promised us. The quality was excellent and I had no qualms about recommending you to my brother-in-law and my good friend who have since both done business with you. We look forward to future purchases with you. Keep up the good work!”

“I purchased a 10 x 16 Quaker shed from The Barn Raiser in August of 2005. I love it! When I ordered my shed, I requested a number of modifications. It was delivered exactly as I ordered. I also requested a site check; they arrived on the date and at the time promised. The day of delivery, it was a continuous downpour. We were all drenched to the skin but the shed was delivered and placed perfectly in a very difficult spot. It seemed impossible to accomplish. It sits on an elevated bed with approximately 6″ of clearance behind a tree on the front side, similar clearance to a wall in the back and nearly touching a boat shed on one end. All this and backing down an embankment! Would I recommend The Barn Raiser? Not only would I, I have!”

“We have purchased 2 gliders, 3 tables, a wishing well, arbor, shed and a cedar gazebo from The Barn Raiser. My husband uses the shed to house his woodworking tools and we have a hot tub in the gazebo. The products are well made and reasonably priced. They are very cooperative, friendly, helpful people who will bend over backwards to help you in any way they can. We highly recommend them.”Nicholas & Marge P.

They have always gone above and beyond in catering to my unique requests. The buildings are beautiful, solidly constructed and made without a lot of the environmentally destructive chemicals other structures contain. I love ’em so much!”

“Before finding The Barn Raiser, we looked at 6 other dealers, only to find that the level of service and quality of their products was not up to par. When we met Stacey, she made us feel very, very comfortable. The all wood construction of our garage was guaranteed, as well as very competitive prices. Dealing with The Barn Raiser was so excellent that we bought a 2nd 2-car garage for our Catskill property and a Dutch barn for our property in the city. We are very happy and we have recommended The Barn Raiser to all of our friends”

Our structure was very unique from the beginning. You approached every new request we had as a learning experience and a challenge.

“I searched for months to find a sturdy, extra-large bunny hutch to humanely house my family of rabbits. The people at The Barn Raiser said “Draw a simple picture of what you need and include some size dimensions”. Within a few days, they called me with roofing and color choices, price quotes and suggestions to improve my original design. I have purchased several structures from them since, including a Dutch barn chicken coop and a customized board and batten ‘rake’ shed. The Barn Raiser staff is easy to work with, dependable and strives to make their customer’s happy.”

“Over a year ago, we came to you looking for more storage space. We selected a ‘poolhouse’ style shed and requested several modifications. They were all incorporated as requested, and the building was delivered within the time you estimated. Your set-up seemed to be very efficient. The shed was painted and trimmed to match our home. This has been a watertight, sound, attractive addition to the property. I’m very satisfied, indeed.”

“The garage style building that we purchased has certainly lived up to our expectations and more. The building is extremely rugged. We were able to partition part of it off and build shelves inside to meet our needs. The large doors work to perfection. The Barn Raiser staff was very cordial and very informative when ordering the building. The delivery was excellent and on time. I and Kiwanis would recommend The Barn Raiser for any building needs.”
