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.
Last week I took a trip out to Orcas Island with Jim Spane, to look at this beautiful shop built by Spane Buildings. 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 recently completed this reroof for the Coast Guard Station in Bellingham, WA.
The materials for the roof were manufactured by Nu-Ray Metals. The roof features an 18 inch, 24 gauge panel, with a special Kynar coastal guard paint, that will hold up to the roughest weather, and maintain it’s great look for years to come.
For nearly 75 years, Spane Buildings has led the way in Post Frame Buildings in the Pacific Northwest, creating custom designs and making our customer’s dreams a reality to share with their friends and loved ones.
Rod Kirkwood needed a safe place to store all of his toys. His wife also wanted to add an apartment to accommodate more guests, and have their extended family come stay with them to enjoy the long nights of summer on the water. Kirkwood chose Spane Buildings to customize his dream workshop and residential add-on, and he couldn’t be happier with the end result.

Spane Buildings recently completed this beautiful re-roof on scenic Camano Island, WA. They started by removing the old wood shake roof, then they installed new plywood sheathing and Safe Guard underlayment. Spane Buildings then installed new PABCO Paramount Advantage Laminated Shingles.
Stanwood Self Storage, LLC was started in 1991 by Stan & Yvonne Starkenburg. 24 years later it is still run by the same family. Stanwood Self Storage asked Spane Buildings to build them a custom post frame office building. What did Spane Buildings do? They built this beautiful custom post frame commercial building that needs to be seen to be believed!
In 2013 Spane Buildings was approached by Archway Equestrian Sports to construct their new riding arena with attached stables. They also requested a viewing room, so onlookers could stay warm and cozy while they enjoyed the view.
