Vern's Cheese, Chilton, Wis.


Owned and operated by Vern and Edith Knoespel for 49 years, Vern's Cheese is a processing and retail business right in the heart of the Dairy State. In February 2011, Keller Inc. completed an expansion that allowed the family to replace and remodel their existing office and retail store. To create a store with a country feel, Keller installed a Rigid Frame with Straight Columns from American Buildings Co., as well as Architectural wall panels in Surrey Beige and Loc-Seam roof panel in Regal Blue. In addition to the colorful panels choices, a white country porch that wraps around the 5,004-square-foot structure with a veranda is a highlight of the building's exterior, while the interior is an open structure with high ceilings.
