Directly From the Field:

"I am writing this letter to let you know how pleased I am with Barden Building Systems….When you are a smaller dealership like myself, having a strong, supportive team behind you is a definite plus.

As a sales person, it is very important to me to be backed by a company that provides a quality product. Knowing that the Barden product is the best in its class helps me sell it to my customers. Coming from another company that was a leader in the log home industry, it was very important to me to have a product that was as good or better. I have found that the Barden product provides just that.

Knowing that Barden offers flexible designs, a product that is one of the best in the industry, flexible delivery schedules (which customers love), and the support offered by the Barden team, makes my job of helping my customers realize their dreams a lot easier.

I appreciate the support."

"As a Barden Dealer for 25 years, we have always had the support of the Barden family. They're always ready to be involved if and when an issue arises.

Over all these years, we've exclusively promoted the Owner-Builder Program. The program offers a great deal of flexibility, allowing us to customize the program for our own area. Because we can offer a wide range of building options we have a wider client base, which in turn increases sales.

Thank you Barden Building Systems for such a long term and successful relationship."

Directly From the Field:

"My name is Chris Hundley and I own Elite Custom Homes, an independent dealer for Barden Building Systems. After graduating Architecture school in 1998, I began my career at Barden Homes working with all the different departments to get drawings stamped and out to production.

In 2001, I began my own business featuring Barden Homes. Since then, I have built numerous homes and light commercial buildings. With Barden, my business benefits in several ways: this product is one of the best in the industry, and having every thing from drafting to production under one roof is a big time saver. My clients don't need to hire an architect or order expensive non-customizable plans online. I don't have to run from store to store to get what I need – it's all in the Barden package. The design department does a great job making sure all of the components fit together before arriving at the job site, speeding up my on-site construction time. Barden's transportation department separately times my deliveries according to my schedule, which also minimizes loose materials on my job sites. Having neat, safe job sites are standards I won't compromise, and protecting each customer's investment by minimizing the opportunity for theft is, for me, mandatory.

Another advantage is Barden's crane service. This really speeds up the time to set walls and trusses, getting the house weather tight very quickly.
The kitchen department is a great service for my customers. I provide field dimensions for Barden to design my customer's kitchen according to their needs and wants. The 3-D drawings really help my customers visualize the final look for what will become one of the most important rooms in their home. Finally, Barden's customer service department is by my side through the entire process keeping things moving and answering any questions."

Directly From the Field:

"My business partner has been associated with Barden for over 30 years, and I'm closing in on 20 years as an independent dealer. Barden Building Systems is not only our product supplier, but a business partner that helps a small construction company create a big image in our local market.

By providing us with professional marketing materials and co-op advertising support, Barden has helped us build a local brand. With their large selection of customizable standard plans and the ability to custom design from scratch, we have the advantage of offering some thing for every one. Because of this service, we use a simple and effective slogan: "From cabin to castle, we have a plan to fit your plans."

Heil & Andrews Construction is locally known for producing energy efficient homes at reasonable prices. Our reputation is due in part to Barden's high quality, energy efficient materials. Using Barden's panelized system allows us to enclose a weather-tight shell in days, not weeks. This, coupled with getting the majority of materials from one supplier produces a consistent quality product and on-site time savings. The time we save allows us to have multiple jobs going on at once. This in turn saves our customers money, as we can spread our operating costs over many projects.

Working with the family atmosphere at Barden has been a very rewarding experience, and all of us at Heil & Andrews Construction look forward to continuing our long relationship."
