What We Do


Before work starts, your dream begins.

Whether it's brainstorming on a napkin at a coffee shop or sitting down with a design professional to share your wildest ideas. We are firm believers that you should be creating your dream, not picking from a template. That's why we build custom homes, barns, and equine facilities, indoor riding areas, and more.

Our team can design and build your ideal barn, horse facility, or custom house.

We can customize your building to exude your personality, meet your needs, and showcase the value of your property and investment. We can also restore and renovate vintage buildings so that they maintain their history but have modern-day practicality with timber framing and a keen passion for quality.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“We bought the farm we have now because we fell in love with the barn you [Sylvan Stoltzfus Builders] built.”

Ann McDonald

“We are very pleased with the work done by Sylvan Stoltzfus Builders and Paradise Stone Masonry. They clearly take a lot of pride in their work and paid attention to both the aesthetic and structural issues of our renovation. They took the time to explain what they were doing and somehow managed to save our sagging two-hundred-year-old barn which we thought was done for.”

Sean and Jennifer Hackett

“Their teamwork was amazing. People driving by would pull off the road just to watch. The process impressed everyone.”

Tom and Kathy
