We understand that quality, integrity, meticulousness, and expertise matter. That's why our Amish craftsmen are attentive and detail-focused and we're trusted by so many across the Mid-Atlantic as their #1 custom builders.
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.
Throughout the years, clients have been so happy with our past work that they've invited up back to build custom houses and home additions or manage major home renovations. From well-designed and personalized floor plans to beautiful facades that evoke pride, we handle it all.
Do you want a fenced in paddock or small barn, a grand timber frame barn with twenty lavish stalls, or an impressive indoor or outdoor arena? Maybe you need room to board several show horses or a single charming pony. Whatever the need, we will create a space that exudes class, charm, and character.
Whether it's restoring, renovating or converting a barn, there is great joy in taking something that once had life and restoring to its original state, making it functional again, or giving it a new purpose. Taking a decade-old horse barn with no design appeal and flipping it can produce a breathtaking result.
“We bought the farm we have now because we fell in love with the barn you [Sylvan Stoltzfus Builders] built.”
“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.”
“Their teamwork was amazing. People driving by would pull off the road just to watch. The process impressed everyone.”
Riverside Ranch, Phoenix, NY
“I love all the original framing, the exposed beams, the wood floors, the stone… it’s just beautiful. SSB [Sylvan Stoltzfus Builders] did an amazing job.”
“I called an Amish friend of mine and asked her. ‘Who does the best horse barn building you know of?’ She told me hands down, it was Sylvan.”
The Doylestown Patriot, PA
“They did a beautiful job building an extension onto my garage. They were experienced, professional and very polite.”
“Sylvan Stoltzfus Builders is simply the best.”
Blue Moon Acres, PA & NJ
