About Me

Hey y'all, my name's Allison DuPree and I'd like to welcome you to my new web site, Barn Building! I've been a country girl nearly all my life. I just love the outdoors and working on a farm. When I was a young girl I watched my daddy and the other farm hands build the barn that still sits on our family's property to this very day. I've got a whole lifetime full of experience in the planning, designing and construction of barns. You might call me an expert, and I would not be offended by that term. I hope you'll enjoy the articles I've created for this site -- and the photos too! If you have any questions, well then by all means, ask away! In the mean time, thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!
