Our History

B&D Builders is a full-service custom builder with the experience and expertise to bring your residential or commercial construction project to life. Since 2000, our team of skilled designers and craftsmen have brought creativity and attention to detail to hundreds of buildings, from bank barnshorse barns, and equestrian arenas to party barns, event venues, and luxury homes.

When we — Ben Esh and Daniel Glick — started our business, we were inspired by our experiences growing up. Our families have worked with animals and the buildings they call home for generations. We were raised with that knowledge, as well as a strong work ethic, and it’s part of everything we do. Although we started by building barns, over the years we’ve applied that expertise to other structures. We enjoy working with architects on anything from luxury estates to banks and restaurants.

We take great pride in our work. We’re not happy until you’re happy, and we’ll do what it takes to get things done. It’s not just a slogan. At B&D Builders, your project is built right or not at all.



They did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, for what they said they would do it. They honored their contract. They were great to work with, and they are knowledgeable builders. I am happy with the job they did for me, and I recommend them to my friends.

I had an excellent experience with B&D Builders, from the design stage all the way through the final construction. They made me feel comfortable and confident that my vision was going to be realized. Some of the extra finishing touches they included added a twist of old-world flair to the beauty and overall construction of the entire structure. I truly have a stable that I am proud to call mine and have made a few new friends in the process. Thanks to Ben and Daniel for making my dream come true.

Ben and Daniel truly gave me the ability to make a transition from my old lifestyle that was on a much lower quality to a new lifestyle that is on the quality I am experiencing contemporaneously. They came in not only on time but most importantly on budget. There were no deviations from the original contract price.

Riveredge is a collaboration between our creative vision and Daniel’s expertise in building. He was open to new shapes, new materials, and new approaches. It was a beautiful process to watch, and the project continues to evolve. We make a great team, and to this day, we still talk nearly every week.

Working with B & D was fantastic. They took the traumatic experience of my old facility collapsing and exceeded my expectations with a better arena than I had before. Ben was caring and took something bad and turned it into good! He worked within my budget and recommended things that he felt would be an improvement. They were professional and I felt like they had my back. I would totally recommend them to anyone!

B&D’s commitment to bringing your project to life so that it functions, looks beautiful, and lasts is what sets them above the rest. B&D’s enthusiasm for each project like they were building it for their own family each and every time makes working with them so satisfying.

Week in and week out, we hear the same thing from guests arriving at our place: ‘Wow, I’ve seen pictures of this place, but there is no picture that can do this place justice.’

B&D took our elderly existing barn and turned it into an equestrian facility we can enjoy and be proud of.

I have had the opportunity to build many structures/homes and this was the best I have done on a cost to quality basis. They know what they are doing and they are organized and efficient.
