HORSE BARN KITS
Horses have a special place in American culture and history, having served as one of our most industrious companions throughout various eras and regions across the country. It’s no wonder horse barns occupy such prominent real estate in representations of the U.S. both past and present! With roughly 4.6 million U.S. citizens participating in equestrian-related industries, working with and/or caring for approximately 9.2 million horses, it’s safe to assume equestrian facilities are here to stay. While barns can differ in style, size and even function, most wood horse barns share in a rustic and open aesthetic as a result of their post-and-beam construction. If designed with a commitment to longevity and quality craftsmanship, these amazing horse barns will prove to be a great investment in the long-run.
POST-AND-BEAM Horse Barns
Barn construction can be cheap, fast and easy with a pole barn, but the downside is that these structures are not built to last for more than 40 years. Making the decision to invest in a horse barn is a milestone in any homeowner’s life, and as such the horse barn plans should be drafted with an eye toward the future. A wooden horse barn designed using the reliable method of post-and-beam construction will stay standing long enough to pass off to future generations if given proper maintenance over time. In the wake of a natural disaster, post-and-beam buildings are often the only to remain intact. Further, this style of construction makes for highly customizable layouts that are as elegant as they are functional.
Every now and then, we get customers who want to know what it would take to convert an old, abandoned barn into a top-of-the-line equestrian facility. While this is certainly doable, the truth is that barn renovations can be costly and painstaking processes. Hidden costs are unavoidable, usually coming in the form of fumigation and re-engineering fees. Oftentimes, this culminates in a final bill that is actually more expensive than what it would cost to design your own barn. Unless the barn is in good health and complies with local building regulations, it will likely be more cost effective to start from scratch with new horse barn blueprints. Not only does this save on expenses, but it also offers the assurance of longevity and increased opportunity for customization.
Barn Kits Your Way
DC Structures designs and assembles pre-engineered horse barn kits that can be adapted to suit a number of equestrian lifestyle needs. While it’s easy to assume that a prefabricated building package would be unimaginative or of lesser quality, the reality is that horse barn kits are well suited for elegance depending on your choice of custom barn builder and designer. Barn kits from DC Structures are wholly unique in that no two DC barn designs have ever looked exactly the same. We’ve been lucky to collaborate with a number of creative clients who take pride in expanding on their unique horse stable ideas. That’s why we’ve been able to establish and refine a streamlined barn kit design process that takes into consideration the client’s specific vision for their equestrian facilities.
DC Structures’ innovative and easy-to-navigate design process consists of step-by-step collaboration between the client and our design team. This ensures that horse barn plans come together exactly as the client sees fit—both aesthetically and functionally. Our customers have the final say in structural details so long as they are sound from an engineering perspective, and are also given the opportunity to personalize their horse barn kits with our comprehensive selection of options and upgrades. For clients looking to make major structural adjustments to one of our standard kit models—such as building height or width adjustments, removal of posts and custom add-ons—we also offer a flexible design option. Additionally, for those who just can’t seem to find exactly what they’re looking for, we also engage our clients in a custom horse barn kit design process.
