About Us

J4 Building Solutions is a family run business owned and operated by Joe “Cuatro” Strack IV. Cuatro grew up in rural Wharton County and has been involved in the farming and ranch industry his whole life. At a very young age, he began building high fence for his family’s cattle operation. As a high school student in El Campo, Texas in 1994, Cuatro began building game fencing as a part-time profession.

After he and his wife graduated from Texas A&M University in 2002 they expanded their business into J4 Fencing & Services. Out of client’s further needs, Cuatro and his team developed skills and expertise in constructing prefabricated metal buildings, designing barn plans, and building barn homes. J4 Building Solutions specializes in custom turn-key metal building construction and interiors to suit any client’s needs.

Cuatro and his men understand the lives of rural landowners and the need and convenience of turn-key construction solutions done right!

Texas Rebuilt Barn Homes

One trend in many rural areas is to convert an existing barn into a barn home.  For example, enterprising Texas landowners are converting agricultural barns into unique and comfortable homes.  This trend increases with the end of government some allotments.

Even if no barn exists on the land it is still possible to add an “old barn” – if the landowner has the money.  J4 specializes in finding and providing actual barn frames, design assistance, and construction for people who want to build unique barn homes. This builds on the fact that landowners are demanding more energy-efficient (i.e., greener) homes.  This approach uses recycled materials from all parts of a barn – including frame, siding, flooring, roof, beams, and foundation stone

This approach starts with reclaimed historic barn frames as the “core” feature of a barn home.  Incorporating barn wood adds charm and beauty, as well as the character of vintage lumber. Different woods blend well with the overall theme of a barn home.

This style of barn home can encompass the entire spectrum from rustic to modern.  The reclaimed lumber does save trees – as well as the energy and costs of milling and producing new wood.  However, they are also the most expensive alternative.
