Donna and I have owned a home in Jamaica VT near Stratton Mountain for 23 years. We entertain quite frequently and we have always felt our living area, while efficient wasn't large enough to entertain comfortably. We also are looking to spend more time in Vermont as we approach retirement and wanted a larger space similar to the family room we had added on when we owned a home in Wilton (Fairfield County), Connecticut.
Barns dot Vermont so I've always thought a Barn addition would be in keeping with the historic farming heritage of Vermont. A friend of ours was building a GeoBarn garage with a bonus room in Fairfield CT and suggested I come over and meet with George. I immediately felt that George wasn't like the builders in CT that are simply salespeople. George was passionate about what he builds, more of an artist working with a blank canvas than a builder. Each Barn is truly a "work of art". We gave George our wish list of what we wanted in our barn and then George put pencil to paper and he translated our desires and vision into a design that was all we wanted and more.
George's zeal, passion and vision is infused in all the members of his team that worked on our project: Ryan, Theron, Kjell, Dennis, Rich & Ken. It was a pleasure having Theron & Kjell living in our home M-F, and especially enjoyed Kjell's cooking on the smoker. Then Dennis, a superb master carpenter, staying with us during the completion of the finish work. The best part was a "Rebel Yell" bourbon after dinner. Then there was Rich, a smart young man who worked in tandem to complete the interior package with Dennis.
I want to thank all of the GeoBarn's team as they helped guide me as I GC'd the project, an experience that was very fulfilling. As always we made changes along the way and the team worked with us to incorporate those changes into the finished Barn. A terrific collaboration.
Donna and I developed a tremendous fondness for George and his team. The experience and the finished barn exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend GeoBarns as "the" Barn builder of choice, bar none!!
