5 Budget Barn Traits to Look For

While we also build larger and more expensive horse barns for stables and professional ranches, we believe it is important to offer strong, budget-friendly options, too. These budget barns are ideal for hobby farmers with only a few horses and limited budgets.

These are the traits to look for when shopping for and designing your barn to keep the bottom-line cost low:

  1. Choose the Shed Row Style — The shed row style is our preference at Glick Woodworks, and that’s no accident. This barn style is made by placing enclosed horse stalls together to make a full structure. Unlike center aisle barns which feature a spacious enclosed aisle between stalls, a shed row barn leaves everything but the stalls outside. This classic design is key to keeping the price low since you’ll only pay for the space you need — not a ton of extra room.

  2. Skip the Feed Room — While we often sell dedicated feed rooms for hay and supplemental storage in our shed row structures, if you’re looking to build a budget barn, you’re going to want to skip this extra step. Instead of the standalone feed room, we recommend just adding an extra stall that you use for feed storage. For most people trying to get an inexpensive horse barn, this works just as well.
  3. Choose Wooden Siding — Not only is this key to an inexpensive barn, but wooden siding is actually more popular thanks to the tried-and-true rustic look it provides. While some upscale barns are built using metal siding, choosing pressure-treated wooden siding helps keep the price point low. You also don’t have to worry about quality because our wooden siding easily lasts 25 years or more in the elements.
  4. Choose Shingle Roofing — This is another material choice that is essential to building a budget barn. While some high-priced barns have metal roofs, we recommend building the roof of your barn from architectural shingles — just like your house. Shingles are an extremely durable option and serve to keep the price tag low.
  5. Work with a Dealer that Understands Budget — When you’re getting quotes and having conversations with different barn builders to find the right one to build your space, make sure they understand doing things on a budget. Some builders — who primarily build $100,000 barns — may claim they can build you something small on a budget, but they simply aren’t set up to do it well…which can lead to real headaches and unexpected costs. Since we primarily sell inexpensive horse barns, our Amish craftsmen are skilled at crafting and installing them while sticking to your budget.

Buy Your Barn at the Right Time of Year

While there’s no financial incentive to buy any particular time of the year, it can have an impact on how long you’ll have to wait for the horse barn you need. Since the fall is our busiest season, our lead times are the longest then, as many farmers, ranchers, and homeowners need our help. That’s why we recommend that if possible, you should order your barn in the spring or summer.

However, no matter when you order, you’ll still enjoy exceptional customer service and competitive prices!
