What is a Horse Barn Kit?
A horse barn kit is a pre-engineered design and materials package that includes everything you need to assemble the structure after it arrives at your location. Our wood horse barn packages include sets of highly detailed blueprints, framing material, doors and windows, siding and trim, and much more. These kits are designed, locally sourced and prefabricated at our facility in Oregon and shipped to clients around the country. Our team of talented in-house designers have created a line of pre-designed horse barn kit models that can be easily modified to enact your vision.
HORSE BARN KIT MODELS
Gable Barn Kit
The Columbia is a gable-style barn kit with the architectural appeal of a historic timber framed barn. This model comes in five standard sizes and features two steel-framed breezeway doors, a center aisle loft, a cupola, and a 12’ shed roof, in addition to our standard select-grade Douglas fir posts and glulam beams.
Monitor Barn Kit
The Powell is a monitor-style barn kit with an impressive silhouette. Like the Columbia, this model comes in five standard sizes with similar product selections, plus a window package from Andersen to take advantage of its raised center aisle.
Shed Row Barn Kit
The Pendleton is a shed row barn kit with an efficient design that utilizes an exposed breezeway aisle. This kit comes in three standard sizes and includes steel-framed horse stall fronts and Dutch doors, a tack room, a cupola, and Douglas fir posts and glulam beams.
Clerestory Barn Kit
The Brightwood is a clerestory barn kit with windows along the top of the structure’s wall that fill the barn with natural light. You can choose from five standard sizes – all of which come with two steel-framed breezeway doors, an upgradable window package, and Douglas fir posts and glulam beams.
Apartment Barn Kit
The Oakridge apartment barn kit is our most popular design with upstairs living quarters. It comes in five standard sizes and includes open-web floor trusses, a 12’ by 12’ deck, a cupola, dormers, and a customizable door and window package.
Apartment Barn Kit
The Pineridge is a simpler alternative to the Oakridge apartment barn kit with HardiePanel fiber cement siding, an upgradeable door and window package, and dormers for added headroom and aesthetic appeal.
Post & Beam Construction
Post and beam construction is a method of heavy timber frame construction that uses large vertical posts and horizontal beams to support the structure of the building instead of dimensional lumber. Load-bearing walls typically used in a conventionally framed home are replaced with heavy timbers to create open interiors with vaulted ceilings. Unlike pole barns, the posts are not encased in concrete, which allows us to use beautiful, select-grade Douglas fir columns instead of unattractive, chemically treated posts. A standard post and beam layout is especially useful in horse barn designs, making it easy to reconfigure the space to place horse stalls, tack rooms and wash bays as you see fit.

When signing on to a custom horse barn with DC Structures, our team goes to every length to ensure your structure matches your vision. Through a process called prefabrication, we offer clients the chance to jump-start construction and save thousands of dollars by doing so. After working with a project coordinator to select your kit model and finalize the design, all of the high-quality materials for your wood horse barn package are prepared in a weather-resistant facility prior to being shipped to your building site. This prefabrication process saves our clients time, money, and effort by allowing fewer days with carpenters on-site and reducing equipment rentals. It also allows for more accurate construction, tighter joints and better overall quality.
