The Barn on Orcas Island

What does your dream workshop look like? Does it have a full living space including an entertainment room, an office, a kitchen, custom kids play areas, and bedrooms? How about a full movie theater? How about an elevator? Most of you probably didn’t think such things were possible! I know I didn’t! At least until I visited “The Barn” on Orcas Island.

The purpose of our trip was to get some video of the building, and to visit with the owner Bill Wulff. When we first got out there, I was blown away by the property. The Barn is set down in a large clearing. It was completely surrounded by trees, and at first glance, it looked more like a kids’ dream play area than a man cave.

Spane Buildings – More Than You Ever Dreamed

 

What can you do with a Spane Building? More than you ever dreamed!

In this brand new video, Spane Buildings shows a variety of structures they’ve created, and the amazing things that owners have used them for. We were shown a four bay garage on Camano Island that features a custom deck for the owner to watch the sunset. We also saw a monitor style garage with custom siding and metal roofing to match the look of the owner’s home. We saw custom roofing jobs from the Spane Buildings’ Roofing Division. We saw a custom motorcycle garage, a commercial storage building with a custom family living space, an event barn with a custom wagon wheel chandelier, a winery event center, and of course “The Barn” on Orcas Island.
