Rustic Ravines – Creating An Oasis In The Foothills Of The Allegheny Mountains!

rustic ravines

The entrance to Rustic Ravines in Genoa, West Virginia

It is easy to see why Joe Boffo and his partner Paul Liimatta are so excited about creating Rustic Ravines, a new log cabin resort built this year and located in Genoa, West Virginia.

Rustic Ravines sits in the middle of some of the most gorgeous views you could ever ask for, at the foothills  of the Allegheny Mountain Range. And that is just the beginning!

“This area of West Virginia has the best off-road ATV trails in the world”, says Joe. “There are 50,000 acres of trails, with something for everyone to do.”

And with 300 acres, 11 rentals and 3 venues already in place at Rustic Ravines, they have something for everyone as well!

rustic ravines

The Genoa Cabin built by Weaver Barns, one of 6 current rentals at Rustic Ravines

Whether it is renting ATV’s for a thrilling ride on the trails, enjoying live music, great food, or just some quiet relaxation time – you can find it at Rustic Ravines.

“We started this year building our cabins – and already have 6 rentals in place”, says Boffo. “We completed our welcome center and party barn as well, and even included a great upper floor rental apartment in it for extra living space.”

As for those cabins – when it came time to build, Joe and his partner looked to Weaver Barns.

“We had looked at a few cabins that Weaver had built in Hocking Hills, Ohio and loved them, so we decided it would be a perfect fit here at Rustic Ravines.”

Rustic Ravines

Beautiful accommodations in a rustic setting!

Rustic Ravines features 6 Weaver Barns rental units with more on the way. The Genoa Cabin (pictured), sleeps 5, has a full kitchen and bath and Jacuzzi as well. And the views, well, they are simply spectacular!

I can’t say enough about the crew that Weaver Barns had out here to build these cabins. Their craftsmanship, work ethic and dedication was fabulous – honestly I was in awe of how they worked.”

And as fast as Weaver worked, you have to be impressed with how Joe and his partner Paul are quickly building Rustic Ravines into one of the premier destinations for fun and relaxation.

It is simply stunning to see what they have accomplished in such a short time.

Congratulations and good luck Joe and Paul on your incredible venture!

You can find out more about Rustic Ravines at rusticravines.com, or check out their great new video below to see it all in full color!

Everyone asks me when do you think you'll be done Joe? And, I usually say, jokingly: never LOL!!! But actually that's an honest answer…This project will never be done…Rustic Ravines has taken on a life of its' own and will become a destination Resort for people from all over the world to come and enjoy what we love about Wild and Wonderful West Virginia…Much like Southern Ohio is known for people renting cabins in Hocking Hills…South Western West Virginia will be known for people renting cabins in Rustic Ravines….Relaxing, Having Fun, Riding ATV's and Enjoying the majestic beauty of The Allegheny Mountain Range…People also have asked me: "Why here Joe?" And to this I say…Why not here? I think our NEW Rustic Ravines Video says it all…Our NEW website is coming real soon and this video will be embedded in it in a prominent place…Now I can answer the question a little easier…Why here? Ahhhh…Watch this! LOL

Martin Wach’s Vision For Tiny Homes In West Virginia – Weaver Barns’ Style!

Martin Wach’s first model “Tiny Home” from Weaver Barns

When you spend a few minutes speaking with Martin Wach, you realize his energy and wonderful ideas are seemingly endless!

Martin and his wife Delia Bowman, who reside in Wheeling, West Virginia, are popular co-authors of a series of children’s books that are both educational and entertaining.

But in addition to his passion for writing, he has also been blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit that has served him well. Especially when it comes to his latest idea – low-cost and flood plain housing for the residents of Wheeling, West Virginia.

“50% of Wheeling sits in a flood plain”, says Martin, “and finding housing, and more importantly flood insurance can be difficult.”

But with the huge boom in the interest in tiny homes over the last decade, Martin thought there might be a way to use the smaller, more mobile housing units to fill a need. So Martin had Weaver Barn’s construct his first “Tiny Home” model. It is now up and on display on Wheeling Island in West Virginia. Even better, as a lover of gardens, he plans to have each  come complete wih

Houses on wheels can of course be moved in times of distress, making them ideal and affordable in low lying, flood plain areas. But beyond the wheels, Martin has an additional idea for putting some of the houses on pontoons.

“I  have two engineering seniors at Wheeling Jesuit University working on a wide range of ideas for the Pontoon project”, says Wach, “and brought our projects to Kent State because they have access to a wide range of programs to help us.”

“Weaver Barns has just been terrific throughout this whole process of getting started and with the first model, we can’t wait to see where it will lead.”

If  you want to find out more about this project, you can contact Martin via email at :[email protected]

Continued success Martin – and we will be sure to keep everyone updated on the story!

The Holdridge Garden Shed – Gardening to The Sound of Music!

We love to share the stories of our wonderful customers and their Weaver Barns’ structures! Today’s story comes to us from the Holdridge’s, who share the story of their backyard Highland Garden Shed.

Highland Garden Shed

The Holdridge’s Highland Garden Shed

When the Holdridge’s went looking for a hard-working garden shed back in 2013, they happened across a Weaver Barns display lot, and in the words of Jean Holdridge, “We fell in love!”

The model they fell in love with was none other than the Weaver Barns’ Highland Shed. The Highland’s rustic pine timber framing, porch, and higher roof pitch make it a great fit for almost any location and need, from pool house, to backyard get-away retreat, or in the Holdridge’s case, the ultimate garden shed.

“Working with the Weaver Barn folks was a simple process”, says Jean Holdridge.  “We prepared a 4-inch gravel base for the building to set on. To keep it safe from high winds, we installed 4 concrete “dead men” (no, Jimmy Hoffa is not buried under our Barn!!  on each corner.

My handy hubby installed 80-amp electrical service and completely wired the building inside and out.  We now enjoy gardening to the sound of music!”

Garden Shed

Love that porch!

Fast forward to today, and the Holdridge’s Highland shed continues to serve them well. “This year, we had it all re-painted and top coated. It was still in really great shape, and only required a little TLC maintenance. And now, it looks brand new again!”

Thank you so much Jean to you and your husband for sharing your Weaver Barns story with us – and what a gorgeous setting for your garden shed!

If you would like to share your Weaver Barns story, email us at [email protected] and you could be one of our next features.

Living The Dream In A Weaver Barns’ Farmhouse! Life At Old World Garden Farms

It’s hard to believe that a little over 15 months ago, Jim and Mary Competti didn’t have a single Weaver Barns’ structure on their property. But fast forward to today, and they have a Weaver-built house, garage, pavilion and garden shed to boot!

The Weaver Barns Cedarbrook home and Timber Ridge Pavilion at Old World Garden Farms

“We joke all the time that we might as well just hang a Weaver Barns sign at our entrance!,” says Mary, “But we simply love the look and quality of everything they have built here.”

And “here” for Mary and Jim is a little 3 acre farm in Nashport, Ohio they named Old World Garden Farms. For them, the “farm” has been a way to slow down, downsize, and enjoy life.

Back In 2010, seeking a way to become more responsible for the food on their table and to simplify the typical life of 2 full time professionals balancing careers and a family of four – they decided to create a space and place to grow their own food.

The front entrance to the Competti’s Cedarbrook home

Starting from scratch, they worked together to convert the overgrown 3 acre field into a self-sustaining farm that could feed their family and their soul. They wanted to grow their own food without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Most important, they vowed to always have fun in the process.

They now grow nearly 75% of their own food, raise a small flock of chickens, maintain two bee hives, a small orchard and a fledgling vineyard, In the process they have used reclaimed and recycled materials to build everything from their barn, chicken coop, compost bins and more.

In early 2012, they created a website (oldworldgardenfarms.com) to document the entire process. Much to their shock, the website quickly took off. It has now grown to over 30,000,000 visitors and 160,000 followers from over 226 countries around the globe.

“I don’t think that either of us ever imagined it would grow and become what it has,” says Jim, “but I think it just goes to show you how many people really want to go back to living a more simple and fulfilling life.”

Their ultimate goal was to move from their surburban house and build a house and life at the farm. And it late 2015, they started to put those wheels in motion.

“We had been looking at all kinds of houses and options but just couldn’t find what we wanted. We knew we wanted to downsize and create something unique, and something that fit the farm and our life. And then fate stepped in,” says Mary.

“It was late October of 2015, and we were heading home from the farm one night, and Jim stopped at a store just up the road for gas. When he went in to pay, there happened to be a Weaver Barns brochure on the counter, and he loved the look of the house on the front cover. He came back out and showed it to me, and the next thing I knew we were heading up to Sugarcreek the following weekend to look at their models on site.”

As soon as we met everyone there and saw the barns, sheds and garages, it was over. We just really felt comfortable the minute we started working with them. I loved the fact that they could work with us to come up with a home that fit our needs. The house is only 1054 square feet, but we absolutely love every square inch. I think when we first started building, half of our friends and family thought we were crazy for downsizing so much. But honestly, it was the best thing we ever did!” Before we knew it, we went ahead with a Weaver garage to match.

The Compettis had Weaver barns complete the outside, and they finished the inside themselves. “We love to build and create as much as we can, and it was great working with someone who understood that,” said Jim.

This past year they added a Weaver Pavilion to the mix as well. “It was just the final thing that we needed at the farm, I loved their Pavilion from the moment I first saw it,” says Jim. “We love to live and enjoy the outdoors. We added a brick paver patio underneath, and it has become our outside home for the summer!

“We sit under the Pavilion almost every single night, and can’t believe how wonderful it finally feels to live here. It has become a ritual that at least once or twice a week someone stops to ask about it. I think for many people, they just really love the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Weaver takes in their buildings. We couldn’t be happier with life on our little farm!”

Overlooking The Valley Below – Lisa Stith’s Timber Lodge Home

Lisa Stith - Timber Lodge

Lisa Stith’s Timber Lodge Home

Lisa Stith’s Lively Acres property sits on 7 and 1/2 acres overlooking the rolling hills of the gorgeous Tuscarawas County valley below. One look from her wrap around porch, and it becomes obvious to see why she chose the spot for her Weaver Barns Timber Lodge home.

With its large windows and wide open porch space, the Timber Lodge home takes in all of the beauty of valley.

It also gives her a great view of her beloved animals. Lisa has chickens, cats, a dog, a donkey named Jill, and her trusty old mare Good-N-Lively, who the property is named after. It is easy to see that she loves her animals and the wildlife that surrounds her property. She has even become an avid supporter of the Monarch Butterfly.

Lisa Stith - Timber Lodge

Lisa’s Timber Lodge Kitchen

Her landscape is filled with plants that the traveling butterfly needs to survive. Each year, she helps to raise and release them in efforts to increase the population. “They are an amazing creature, they travel 3000 miles or more to Central Mexico and back, and need all the help they can get”, says Lisa.

Lisa has an incredibly interesting life. “I grew up on the cape of Massachusetts. My father was a professor at MIT in Cambridge, and growing up we had horses. I loved being around them.”

So after graduating college with a B.A. in French and Secondary Education, Lisa decided to pack up her car, and moved to Ohio for the opportunity to train and race horses. “I went to work and trained race horses at the Dover Fairgrounds. I lived out of my car for awhile, and then moved into a place at the fairgrounds. For 13 years I really lived day to day.”

lisa stith - Weaver Barns

The walk out basement with stone facing

She finally ended up purchasing the land that her Timber Lodge home now sites on. At first, she and her husband created a small little house on the property. After many years of living, she had bad water, and it was in need of some serious repairs. So a few years back, she began to think about building a more “permanent” home on the site.

“I had looked at options for awhile, and one day passed by Weaver Barns in Sugarcreek and noticed the Timber Lodge. After that, I just kept driving by over and over. Finally, I stopped one day and went through it, and just kept imagining living in the house. That is when I first went inside and talked to Jason.” (Weaver Barns Inside Sales Manager Jason Miller)

“I really enjoyed working with Jason, his creativity and ability to adapt really made this project happen.” She continued working on designs with Jason, creating the home that now overlooks the surrounding hills and valley.

The house was built in 2014. “It took Weaver a lot of work to get this house up”, says Lisa, “This hill wasn’t easy to build on. But they worked and worked and made it happen. John Hershberger (Weaver Barns Project Manager) always came up with an answer to whatever issue there might be.”

And so it became that Lisa and Lively Acres had her Timber Lodge home.

Once built, she didn’t stop there! She fell in love with the look of Weaver’s new Pavilion introduced last year. and added on at the end of her driveway to serve as beautiful carport.

Thank you so much Lisa for sharing your story and home with us! We wish you many, many years of continued happiness at Lively Acres! Here are some more photos taken at Lively Acres:

The Sugar Creed model comes with standard  7’ high sidewalls, a 5/12 roof pitch, and a 32” overhang – and makes a perfect fit for a backyard garden shed, pool house, tiny cabin, or outdoor retreat. With countless options for doors, windows, roofing and siding – the only limitation is your imagination!

The double framed doors, heavy duty 2 x 8 tongue & groove treated flooring, and continuous ridge vent and soffit ventilation system stands up to the test of time, and will keep your Sugar Creek shed looking great for years to come.
