When Meaghan and her husband decided to build a home on 30 acres outside Stockholm, Wisconsin, they took matters into their own hands. “We built the house ourselves on weekends beginning in 2005,” she says. “In 2011, we built a barn for our two horses and started living in our new home full time.” Work continued last summer in the kitchen and dining area where Meaghan installed new kitchen counters...

Behind the Scenes | Pulling it All Together in Assembly
As we continue our celebration of Manufacturing Month here at Barn Light, we’ve been offering a peek at the amazing craftsmanship, dedication to detail, and plain hard work that happens here every single day.
