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 simple bank barns to horse barns, to large equestrian arenas.

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.

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, we build it right, or we don’t build it.


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.”

I liked Ben’s knowledge of horses and building craft. As an architect, working with B&D allowed me to achieve the design elements I was looking for. The B&D crew’s attention to detail and work ethic brought the same spirit to my ideas to deliver the stable I envisioned.

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!

This whole project is a dream come true; we have finally built the best ring in the whole area. Ben’s expertise in barn building and my equestrian experience came together to create the perfect riding solution for McDonogh School. I really enjoyed the process of working with Ben one on one for the best building options. Now I enjoy my daily work in the most amazing riding facility.
