Since 1994 we have designed and built the barn of our clients’ dreams.

Giving you a safe shelter for you and your horse. It’s not just a job, it becomes a partnership. At We Build Barns, we believe each and every time you walk through your barn doors, it should be an experience you treasure.

In 1988, Steve and Cathy Vess started a business building top-notch homes in and around Northern Virginia. They ended up designing a custom barn that also served as their home! Today, Steve and Cathy have built dozens of custom homes to fit a wide range of budgets – without sacrificing quality. They refuse to work with cookie-cutter barn templates, and they never build cheap, unsafe barns. Every barn we build is carefully crafted by experts with materials of the highest quality to provide you with a barn that has been engineered for excellence.
