Since 2002, Precise Build-
ings has been designing, build-
ing and restoring exceptional
structures, from unique barns
to indoor arenas. A full-ser-
vice custom builder located in
the heart of Lancaster County,
Precise has helped restore the
landscape in Chester County,
Pennsylvania, and many prop-
erties in Northern Maryland and
New Jersey. Precise specializ-
es in crafting buildings using
modern design and construction
with traditional Amish crafts-
manship. This longstanding
foundation drives Precise to cre-
ate the highest quality structures
in the industry.
Whether new construction or
barn restoration, many consider-
ations go into a Precise building.
For example, a barn with a post
frame, metal roof and metal or
wood siding is the easiest to build
quickly at a reasonable price, and
many people will opt to upgrade
to a shingle roof over plywood
sheeting to minimize the pound-
ing of rain overhead. Others
will add cupolas for additional
venting and louvered gable vents.
Steel framed arenas allow for a
much greater width than the post
framed arenas, but at a higher
price point.
Building size impacts
design and materials choices,
and impacts the final price. An
80’ x 200’ arena will allow most
disciplines to work unobstructed;
sidewalls at 16’ will allow jump-
ing at any height. Once these
dimensions are determined, the
client can focus on material, door
and window choices.
Light and ventilation are
also considerations. Split sliding
doors, sliding windows, skylight
panels and gable windows allow
for light and ventilation. Precise
designs window and lighting
arrangements that minimize
shadows. Precise ensures that its
buildings have the most venti-
lation possible, the best natural
lighting, and a door system that
allows for the greatest access
while helping airflow in the warm
weather months.
Precise Buildings works with
clients to factor all the variables
into their building equation, to
build the best structures at any
price point. To learn more, visit
