Keedysville, MD

fully restored historic barn

It's been such a blessing — this journey of loss. I lost half my family between January of 2016 and March of 2017. Then I inherited the barn. Now the renewal of everything my mom always wanted...not to have the barn fall into disrepair. I value the entire journey but especially the history and looking back and remembering.

When I started the journey of restoring my 100 plus year old barn, I did not realize the subtle but extraordinary combination of construction skills and historical design knowledge required to bring the old building to life again. The Stable Hollow team worked hard to ensure that that every aspect of the project was coordinated and executed as promised even through poor weather and difficult logistics. Today the barn is ready for its second century and for generations to come. If you are looking for a high quality team to restore your barn and like outbuildings, look no further than Stable Hollow as your honest partner.

Stable Hollow Construction did excellent work on our barn. They added new support beams, crafted a number of new doors, and updated some of the trim. The doors are beautiful, and we were very pleased not only with their quality work but with their professionalism, their communication on the project, and their dedication to finishing the work in a timely manner. This is a very well-run business, and we thank them for their service.

Stable Hollow does a fantastic job. Very thorough - no punch list. I would not hesitate to recommend them!  I particularly enjoy working with Daniel.

Over the last 7 years MR Roofing has installed complete new roofs on two 100
year old houses.  Stable Hollow has restored a 200 year-old large stone barn
and two tractor sheds (including new roofs on all three buildings).   I am
72 years old and can enthusiastically say that it does not get any better
than this.  At the end of every job I am sorry to see them leave.  Great guys
and fantastic craftsmen!

restored barn

Thank goodness we found Stable Hollow to preserve it. Now it’s hard to imagine what the property would be like if that barn wasn’t there.

Even with Stable Hollow driving almost 2 hours a day, they got more done when they were here than anyone else ever did. They don’t waste any time. We learned a ton about barns, and Stable Hollow was an incredible source of knowledge. We learned a lot about their woodworking and how they were able to repurpose so many things. Anybody who is looking to restore a barn, and called or asked, I would 100% suggest to work with them. I think they are honest, fair, trustworthy, knowledgeable craftsmen, who were as passionate about saving and restoring the property as we were. Leroy would come out and he would be giddy, and Daniel, the foreman on most of the job, was one of the best people I have worked with on any project. We went and bought hand-wrought iron straps for all the doors, and they made it work. They look beautiful. Nobody else would have taken the effort to do that.

Barn Beams Restoration

Looking at the inside of our barn you can see the knee wall installed to stabilize the foundation as well as the new post supporting the floor. What cannot be seen is all the work that took place to remove partitions, a concrete feeding trough, other debris as well as rotted railroad ties used as flooring and a layer of old straw and animal waste. Also all the excavation and regrading plus installation of drainage piping behind the retaining wall and in from of the barn wall. All of this excavation work took place during spring rains creating lots of mud. My compliments to Mr. Daniel Esh and his crew.

Historic Wedding Barn Restoration

We felt at home with Stable Hollow, and we didn’t want to just restore another barn. We wanted something special. Our barn is now a safe working event space. By the time the construction was finished, we had become such good friends with them that all my friends and family wanted to meet them. The team was great, easy to work with, and very high energy. I would recommend Stable Hollow for their quality of work and their professionalism. When I do tours for clients, they tell me, “Your attention to detail is amazing!” Stable Hollow Construction kept the integrity of the cool nooks and crannies of the original structure.

Historic Wedding Barn Restoration

I’ve worked in construction for years, and I could tell that the Stable Hollow team was very knowledgeable about the history of the building, and the construction. After some things were done, I changed my mind, and anything I wanted to be changed, they did without crying about it. You can’t hide wires anywhere, but you go look around our barn, and you can’t see any of them. Stable Hollow does not go the cheap route. I would never recommend someone as highly as I recommend them.

Barn Restoration

We love the work done by Stable Hollow Construction.  We had our barn, which was built in the 1800s, resided with new barn boards.  It looks amazing.  We are preserving a part of history for our family, thanks to Stable Hollow.  Daniel was very attentive to our needs, Benjamin and crew were very thorough, courteous, and friendly.  We highly recommend this company.   Thank you, Stable Hollow Construction.
