Hi everyone. I have two horses whom I have boarded for the past 3 years, but the costs are a bit high and I am looking to bring my horses home to save me some $ over the long term. I know it will take a few years, but that is fine. We are looking to build a simple shedrow barn (project hubby and I will take on as we are both very good mechanically) and the fencing as well. Anyone have any ideas on expectations of costs for a 3 stall shedrow barn with an overhang? Since we are planning on doing the building ourselves, we anticipate the savings will be significant. We got quotes for same pre-fab and they started at 12k. If there is anyone out here that has built their own barn, I'd love to hear your story!
As for the fencing, we are considering electrobraid fencing rather than post/rail and vinyl. Does anyone have experience with electrobraid and how effective it is/safe? I know it is cost effective compared to the other more expensive type of fencing, but we want to ensure it's safe and will contain the horses.
Thank you and I look forward to your responses.
