It’s all about quality.
We believe that a quality building becomes so much more than just a building. It becomes a place where classic cars are collected, where the reliable tractor awaits the next snowfall, and where families gather to celebrate life’s most joyous occasions. That’s why our father, Everett Skinner III, and our grandfather Bill, started The Barn Yard in 1984. Fast forward to today and our dedication to quality has driven us to a full fleet of delivery trucks, multiple full-time build crews, and a state of the art timber frame facility. Because how we build it today makes all the difference tomorrow. We are excited to get started on your project.
The Skinner Family
is to build quality barns, garages, and sheds while providing an unmatched customer experience and preserving the values The Barn Yard was founded on in 1984.
Join Everett Skinner IV for an in-depth educational tour of our advanced timber frame design & manufacturing facility in Ellington, CT. Start in the design department and then head into the shop. See our CNC machines in action with sawdust flying and timber frame joinery being crafted with precision, then hand finished, ensuring the highest quality, most authentic timber frame barns & kits available today. Learn all about joinery—the art of connecting timbers with only wood to wood connections—and why we’re blending modern technology with old-time tradition to bring new life to this lost art. Discover the difference between post & beam and timber frame. And see what makes our timber frame kits the best.
Thank you so much for stacking the trusses in the right order and all the little details you guys do. That helps out big time when it comes to putting this thing together. We were all super impressed with how nice it is going together. And I also cannot leave out how professional the trucking company was—the nicest truck driver I've ever dealt with.
