Building use, importance, and newsworthiness: Another Lester building making memories. This wedding pavilion completes this property with any weather situation that they may encounter for their weddings. it is also a bed and breakfast. The 1914 Round Barn in on the National Register of Historic Buildings. They ok'ed our Lester building because it fits the farm environment the best.

Unique features: The flexibility of the building on how it can be completely open except one end wall, or pull shut some custom outdoor curtains to keep the always changing Minnesota weather out and the wedding reception going smooth.

Post-frame advantage: The "Round Barn" is a National Register of Historic Building. Our Lester post-frame building had to be "ok'ed" by the National Register. Our type of construction they felt fit the Farm environment the best.

Cost per Sq. Ft.: about $15

Duration to complete: 20 days/ bride's mother would take tour and didn't think wedding pavilion would be done in time for wedding; we were done and ready for wedding.
