Hochstetler Buildings BFBA Awards 2011 Kammerer Kammerer (2011 NFBA & BFBA)

Our client, who had hired an architectural firm to design her dream garage, came to us for help to fulfill this dream. The goal was to build a new garage that appeared to be built in the same era as her 1930 era house. Much attention was given to design, detail, colors and function. This garage has three distinct purposes. One area is a heated garage, one area is a heated workshop and the upstairs is an open guest room.

Hochstetler Buildings BFBA Awards 2011 Select Sires Select Sires (2011 BFBA)

Select Sires, Inc. is the largest producer of bovine semen in the U.S. This new calf campus is designed to receive 45-day-old genetically valuable calves transported from a company that conducts embryo transfer and in vitro fertilization methods with cattle. The young calves reside in Barn A for 30-35 days during which time they are weaned from a milk diet to a grain and hay diet. Each calf resides in a well-bedded pen providing 35 SF per animal for its comfort and welfare. When 75-80 days old, the calves are transferred to Barn B where they will reside until six months old. The buildings are designed to reduce the risk of the calves developing respiratory disease; the facility and buildings are designed to achieve biosecurity separation to further protect the health of these animals.

This 3,120 square foot garage was built to compliment the 1800’s built residence.  The building holds the era dated charisma of local architecture and blends the construction design necessary to make it fully functional. The windows on all four sides of the cupola create a natural light port for the center of the building.  The owner wanted to use actual sliding “barn” doors in order to complete the era connectedness of this project.  This building provided a beautiful backdrop and facility for the outdoor ceremony and reception for the owner’s daughter’s wedding.
