Oklahoma City Roofing Company Rebuilds Old Horse Barn
A horse barn in Oklahoma City that was once a historical landmark fell victim to high winds and lost it’s rooftop and siding. The barn acted as a horse stable in the early 1800’s and was a preservation project that the city took on to restore and preserve as a historic landmark. The bar once held 20 horses at a time and even sheltered families that were passing through as they migrated West. Historically speaking it was one of the oldest structures left from an era that has seen tornado damage wipe most of the properties off the map. The preservation project includes the rebuild of the interior structure, new siding, flooring, and roofing. The addition of electricity was added and plumbing was installed. The old horse barn will become a venue for events in the future. Oklahoma City Roofers (Salazar Roofing) was the lead on the construction project. In addition to the renovations that took place inside and outside of the barn, there was a new structure built on the property that included a small kitchen for catering events and restrooms for guests. The landscape was completely redesigned as well by a group Oklahoma City Landscapers and designers. The property now flourishes with blooming gardens and well groomed grasses from Switzer Lawn Care. The property will be available for rent this summer just in time for wedding season. Then venue can be rented out for weddings or receptions and features a walkup bar for serving beverages inside the barn. The barn has Wifi included with event rentals and has a complimentary computer in the entry area for guests to use. While they were re-roofing the barn they added a chimney so they could include a vintage pellet stove in the entry way for ambience. The ideas was to give it a frontier feel. An interior decorator from Tulsa was hired and added a massive chandelier as a center piece to the room. Old western items were hung along the walls in a very tasteful manner to give it an added touch. The barn is now almost fully restored and should be ready as a rental venue next year. The old Oklahoma City barn is a piece of history that has now been preserved and repurposed for Oklahoma residents to enjoy. There are currently only two preferred caterers on the venue list and approval for non-approved caterers require an additional stocking fee for scullery and dish management. Property pennants are on hand during function times to assist hosts and manage the venue incase of an emergency.
