Country Road Barn opened it’s doors in June and the residents of Watertown, SD have been making full use of this post and beam wedding destination and BBQ restaurant since!
This two story Raised Center/Combination building can host wedding parties of 300 guests or more. It also features a separate dining area on the main level for weeknight patrons of the onsite BBQ restaurant. Additional dining space is available in the loft for use on either occasion.
An encouraging tidbit for those considering a post and beam business plan for themselves: This event center was booked through the end of the year before construction was even complete! We have seen this to be true of venues we’ve had the privilege of working on across the country.
The post and beam portion of this building comes in at just under 7,000 square feet on the main level. An additional 960 square feet is captured in the attached conventional (stick-framed) kitchen on the north side of the building. The two buildings are integrated together and shown on the floor plan below.
When it comes to wedding barns, this one sets the standard! With that, we invite you to walk through the interactive video below for yourself. Be sure to take notice the rustic elegance the kiln-dried Douglas fir beams bring to the interior. This is key for giving a barn style event center that timeless character and ‘wow’ factor.
