Family Owned Since 2004

The owner of Mountain Barn Builders LLC, Phillip Horst, bought Mountain Barn Builders in 2003 when he was twenty-eight years old. He decided to buy it because he wanted to be able to spend more time with his family. He had previously worked with his brother Paul Horst, excavating. This job had long hours and needed him to stay away from home for days at a time. He now has three of his five children working under him, learning the trade of the business.

Community Focused

Our partnership with Mountain Barn Builders has continued to grow year after year into a great relationship. For over 10 years now we have been able to watch families from across the Upper Cumberland enjoy playing on their playground equipment, sitting in the shade in their gazebos, and enjoying resting in their lawn furniture. - Stephanie Woods at Autumn Acres

Employee Centered

My first thought about the ownership was he knew exactly what he was doing and there was no doubt he knew where he wanted to go. I was impressed by his ability to understand a situation, know the solution to the situation, and then help me resolve the situation. The future for MBB is wide open. Seeing where we can go and be a part of that journey is the best part of the company. The people are Awesome! About everyone wants to grow and improve themselves. For the most part, people are light-hearted and enjoy their work. -Chris Hammock, General Manager at Mountain Barn Builders
