Just under three years ago, the Proprietors of Pippin Hill, Lynn Easton & Dean Andrews entered into a collaboration with George Abetti, the founder of GeoBarns LLC to assist with the design and construct their vision for a Virginia Farm Winery.  The concept was a vineyard and winery Tasting Room restaurant and event venue, drawing on the elements of an authentic Virginia thoroughbred horse barn.  Their collaboration with George on the post and beam construction details, cupolas, custom framing and flow of the space, the hard work and dedication of GeoBarns resulted in what Pippin Hill has become, —  and far exceeding their expectations.

Specializing in the elegant and artistic building of quality barn structures,  GeoBarns LLC was founded by George as a custom building company that utilizes a winning combination of design and execution.  He employs a unique architectural engineering style including basic post and beam design with historically based diagonal framing. Carefully customizing each barn style to meet his clients needs, George’s past clients will testify that he does an absolutely extraordinary job.

And now, George is at it again.  His more recent project was designing a barn for the ACS Silo Vodka Distillery – another great success.  Its “flagship product,” Silo, is a premium vodka made from locally grown vermont grain.

Congratulations from the Pippin Hill team to George and his team, for another project well done!
