Dry Creek Mini-Barns isn't your average storage place. It was started by two Mennonite brothers Willard and Curtis Martin who grew up in Pennsylvania working with their father Isaac Martin in residential construction. It took 4 years of moving, but between 1998 and 2002 Isaac would move his 5 sons out to California and begin developing commercial homes. In 2003, the company split into three departments - Development, Construction, and Storage.
What you get with Dry Creek isn't just pre-fab drab. You get a sturdy full fledged structure, built with the confidence and quality only generations of experience can give you. It's pretty amazing what you can do when you take some world class builders and ask them to build some gorgeous and functional storage. I mean, storage is great but these are contributions to any landscape! Just Beautiful! Take a look below, or come out onto the farm and take a look at ours!
