Our Story

Tim Troyer | Founder/Sales Manager

Hi, I’m Tim, founder, and owner of Troyer Post Buildings. I married the love of my life, Crystal, in 2018, and in 2020 we started doing foster care, making us the proud parents of 3 foster children, 2 boys, and 1 girl! My wife and I also enjoy international travel and mission work.

I was raised in a Mennonite family and my father was involved in construction all throughout my childhood, often involving my four brothers and I in the building projects. When I was thirteen, my dad started a portable storage building shop so he could work with and teach us five boys how to work diligently and efficiently.

In 2014, my brothers and I decided to set out on a business venture of our own. Our Dad helped us get started in the pole barn building enterprise. We were excited to work with the farming community having been brought up in a community of small farms and doing some small farming ourselves. From this farming experience, we recognized a farmer’s need for a low-cost, well-built, simple building to store hay and equipment.

In 2016 the demand for these barns was rapidly increasing and we realized that we could sell a lower-priced barn more efficiently if we bought our supplies wholesale and put our own building packages together. I, Tim, started looking into starting a lumber yard and packaging facility and branching into barn sales while my brothers continued leading barn building crews. As the business continued to grow over the next few years, we started looking into the residential and commercial markets as well as the agricultural. Today, God has blessed us richly and the business has grown to include all these markets. We enjoy the variety this brings our way and partner with crews that are willing and able to build many different types and styles of post-frame buildings and pole barn foundations.

My vision for the future of Troyer Post Buildings is to continue to grow and serve the community around us while giving all the glory to God and furthering His kingdom in whatever way we can.

Troyer-Approved Independent Builders

Nate Troyer | Independent Builder

Nate is the third Troyer boy and married his lovely wife, Sylvia in 2019. They love to travel together to any new place that they have never been, and Nate is an avid pilot. Nate and Sylvia also enjoy reaching out to young men who need a fresh start. Nate, together with Matt and myself, was part of our original barn building crew that we began in 2014. When I started branching into lumber and barn sales, Nate continued running a crew. Since then, Nate has found lots of odd jobs to do for the business. He runs a crew, supplies equipment for several of the other crews, and is beginning to venture into pouring concrete for barn pads. Nate is great at being a jack-of-all-trades and filling in where needed and we are proud to have him and his wife as part of the team here at Troyer Post Buildings.
