Today’s Gambrel Barn – A Feel Good Story

Back in the middle of March, Darlene T. made an inquiry to us about investing in a new pole barn.

Now Darlene and her husband are newlyweds, having been married for just a year. Initially, she had considered a gambrel roof style, with a loft so the kids would have a place to stay when they come over. This new building is to be the couple’s new home.

The bad news is the gambrel barn came in over budget; however Darlene and Hansen Buildings Designer Rachel crafted a single floor design which would both meet the needs of Darlene and her hubby, as well as giving them more space. A win!

This afternoon, Darlene called in saying she needs 4 pieces of 10’ fascia trim.  She doesn’t know if she was shorted and didn’t count them and is willing to pay for them.  Our Productions Department will get those ordered up for her tomorrow.

Here’s the rest of the conversation between Rachel and Darlene (as related by Rachel):


Darlene T. - Hansen Buildings Testimonial

“Now to the good stuff….Darlene couldn’t STOP talking how beautiful, wonderful, HIGH STANDARD and did I mention beautiful her new pole building is!  She is completely satisfied with the quality of the building and how durable it is.  She said sometimes it will be subjected to hurricane weather and she and every one of her neighbors think this will withstand a full blown hurricane.  It sits on top of a hill and everyone can see it.  She said that people have been stopping by and she gives them our name and email address.  Everyone can’t believe how well designed the building is.  She said this will make an absolutely beautiful home and is so very pleased!  She also mentioned they could never have gotten a building kit that inexpensive. Especially for the quality!”

“She said everything came in such GREAT condition and the lumber was EXCELLENT!  She said to find lumber of that grade and that straight would take days to hand pick in their lumber yards. The deliveries went very well and she was VERY satisfied on how the entire process went.  She said her husband would agree with her fully on how all deliveries went great!”

“She said the only thing was that it took quite a bit of concrete for the holes and she didn’t budget for that.  This was not a complaint by any means.  She said the way the poles are in the ground with concrete will make the building stand way past her time….she then went on to tell how great the building was again!”

“She said they will send pictures to show how beautiful the building is!”

It is Darlene, and clients like her and her husband, who make it more than worth getting up with (or before) the sun in the morning for another, “Great Day at Hansen Buildings”.
