Simple and Effective Building Tips for New Horse Barn Owners
Building a stable for your well-loved horses is like building a house for yourself. It entails major considerations for maximum comfort and durability.
One should not forget weather as an important consideration when building a barn. Warm regions work well with a three-sided run-in shelter that gives adequate protection from storms. However, if you live in a four-season region, you need a more specialized kind of stable. Other than its adaptability to warm weather, the three-sided run-in stable is also ideal for limited space. Even in severe storms, your horses will remain sheltered. A minimum of 2 horses require a stable that is built at least 12 x 24 feet, and you can simply put a panel in the middle to serve as a partition, turning the setup into two stalls. A run-in shelter can easily be built by your local carpenter for you.
A barn is a much bigger home for your horses. It can be extravagant to the point of including mirrors, walls, and a heated viewing area. Equine barn specialists can design a state-of-the-art stable, providing you an ideal layout of features like multiple stalls, washrooms, tack rooms, and overhead hay storage.
Another important thing to consider when building a stable is proper ventilation. This eliminates harmful barn odor that comes in the form of ammonia. Prolonged exposure to ammonia poses a threat to health both to you and your horse. While regular cleaning helps, the long-term solution to barn odor is good ventilation that is designed by certified barn builders.
Horse barn plans are specifically designed to fulfill every equestrian’s dream. You can have a large clear-span riding arena, truck and trailer storage, office or living quarters, and comfortable horse stalls. This gives you the freedom to have just the kind of barn you need, based on your preferences and design requirements. This type of barn can be built to work to your advantage.
Pole barn builders recommend structural insulated panels (SIPs) to create extra long-term value for your barn. These panels offer impact-resistant walls that are stronger and straighter and 50% more efficient than stick-built buildings. This also improves the temperature within your barn, as well as prevents air infiltration by virtually eliminating drafts.
Pole barn construction workers allow you to choose interior and exterior finishes for your new building. You can also add any feature of your choice, like cupolas, Dutch doors, and windows.
