Swiss Builders, LLC



I wanted to recommend a contractor for anyone needing a Heritage Barn saved.

Swiss Builders LLC


6029 N. - 100 W.

Peru, IN. 46970

Contact: Merlie Schwartz

Merlie and his sons, plus other crew members are all Amish Craftsmen who know how to fix up Barns in almost any condition. Their work is second to none, and it is always a pleasure to work with them.


Travel- I would estimate that travel would be any part of Indiana from the North side of Indianapolis, to the Michigan border, and western Ohio.

Swiss Builders have renovated the Legacy Barn, in Kokomo, Indiana

and The Rustic Barn in Hopewell, near Wabash. Both of these projects converted a long standing idle barns, into functional event centers capable of sustaining themselves for yeas to come. They also do any and all types of construction for barns and homes. Their work is amazing and the cost is always reasonable and justifiable.


I would be glad to speak to anyone interested in their work.

    The following came from the folks in the Southern Regional Office of Indiana Landmarks: We had some repair work done a couple years ago on a barn that Landmarks owns outside Georgetown, and we used an Amish crew out of Odon, Indiana. The main fellow was Harvey Graber, 812/486-9800. Taylor Brothers Construction out of Columbus, Indiana (812/379-9547) also has quite a bit of experience with historic barns. Laura Renwick Southern Regional Office I would also add Herschel Brichto (Vevay) 812/569-6500 and Josh Stiles from Perry County (812-788-0591). Rick Collins from Tillium Dell out of Illinois may also be a possibility (309-221-8020). Greg Sekula Southern Regional Director Indiana Landmarks
