I recently finished a 2 stall barn for our horses Blaze and Merrygold. The stalls are 10’x10’ with an overall dimension of 10’x20’ with roof overhangs of 2’ all around. The insides of the stalls are lined up to about 4’ with 2 by’s to keep the horses from kicking out the siding. All of the wood with exception of the siding and treated post came from pine trees that fell during a storm some time ago. You can see more on that here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57582
The 1”x8” siding and wood shavings came from a local sawmill.
We acquired a bath tub from our neighbors to use as a watering trough. I used some of the leftover materials to build a frame for the tub so I would have to look out every day at a tub in the pasture. Plumbing was ran out under the tub and then behind the barn so that the area around the tub wouldn’t become muddy when the water was drained for cleaning.
Rain water was splashing up on the back side of the barn and I was afraid that the water would eventually be a problem so a $20 run of gutter from craigslist was added to the back side of the a barn.
