Multipurpose builds are popping up around the country; you’ll see why after taking a peek at this beauty. Kansas-based Quality Structures worked with the owner to marry horse stalls with storage in an overall footprint that is just shy of 3,000 square feet—plenty of space for both function and comfort.
A plethora of doors—four overhead, three walk, four Dutch, and two bale—make it easy to move equipment, feed, and the family’s prized horses in and out, while seven windows provide ample natural light. The horses themselves enjoy three roomy 12′ x 12′ stalls plus a handy 12′ x 12′ wash bay.
To keep the building safe from the hazards of moisture and microbes in the soil, 22″ Plasti-Sleeves were used for all foundation posts. This will allow the barn to stand for many years to come.
Protecting from above is a 29-gauge exposed-fastener metal roof in Burnished Slate with a color-coordinated gutter system. A vented 3′ cupola adds a classic touch while also allowing for critical air movement. The roofline is visually accented with symmetrical 4′ dormers flanking each side and roof extensions at the peak. Matching eyebrow overhangs dress up the walk doors and tie it all together. FN
