I will be following up with a formal testimonial letter because of how happy we are with the product, your service and the installation. I will say that as it got toward dark on Thursday we were a bit anxious. The truck rolled in at dusk, with a difficult feat ahead, since the barn was loaded backwards (the stall “Dutch doors” were on the passenger side rather than the driver’s side). The driver drove up into our field, surveyed the area and the cement slab and returned to the cab of the truck. I went to his cab door, looked up at him and said, “I don’t think you’re going to be able to do this.” He said, “Watch me.” By this time, neighbors had come by to watch the process and we drove a couple trucks into the field to shine headlights on the site. What happened next was nothing short of amazing. With great precision, the driver unloaded the barn, and spun it around with the forklift using remote control. Through very careful and calculated adjustments he set it perfectly on the 12’ x 36’ slab and then went to work drilling and setting lag bolts, mounting the 36” door and cutting away the sill plate at the door entrance. The “Barn Ninja” is what we called him that night.
After that, we all went inside and inspected the construction and the hardware. It was truly better than we had expected or even hoped for. Top-notch! This barn is purpose-built for horses with everything considered … including metal trim on the edges of the Dutch doors and inside the stall to prevent cribbing. My wife is ecstatic about the new home for her registered Morgan. We have had a number of town residents stop in take a look and comment on the quality of the construction and the aesthetics.
Mike I will be ready to serve as a permanent testimonial for Horizon Structures and would gladly take calls from anyone who would like to speak with one of your customers regarding their experience. Further, I will follow up with a formal letter detailing all of this. In the meantime, feel free to cut and paste from this email.
It was a pleasure doing business with you!
