How to Find High-Quality, Low-Cost Barns
No matter what, never compromise on quality. You’re investing real money in a shelter for your horses and storage for your stuff, so make sure it lasts. Instead of cutting corners when it comes to quality construction, we believe the best way to find high-quality, low-cost barns is by making cost-conscious choices during the design process. See how you can save:
- Choose the Right Style — While enormous two-story horse barns look impressive in movies, they simply aren’t the practical choice for today’s hobby horse farmer. Shed row barns and run-in sheds are the ideal styles if you’re looking for low-cost barns. Instead of having the full interior space of a barn, these stripped-down structures just feature the stalls and storage areas. By using far less material, you can get the fully protected stalls you need at a much lower price.
Compare run-in sheds vs. shed row barns.
- Limit the Stalls to What You Need — One of the best ways to keep the price down is to limit the number of stalls. While you may be tempted to build several more than you need for horses you hope to buy or board — or for extra storage — extra stalls add to the bottom-line price without giving you any benefits you’ll use for the next few years.
- Modular Construction — Modular construction means that the main pieces (or the entire structure) are built off-site and simply installed on your property. This is the modern building alternative to building the barn 100% from the ground up on your property. Since this building method is much more efficient — and can lead to a better-quality building — it is an essential to build the best horse barns on a budget.
- Look for Someone Local — One other way to reduce the cost without limiting the quality is to partner with a semi-local company. By reducing the distance your barn has to travel, you may be able to save money on the delivery charges.
