So I got bored not too long ago, and decided to create a barn under the idea of "Trainer/boarding" facility.
I thought I would post it here and see what the thoughts on it were.
Would you board there? Does it look safe? Concerns? Comments? Suggestions?
Key:: Blue Lines are Windows, or possible window placements (Windows will be dutch door style without the door part). Red Lines are Exterior doorways. Green Lines are Internal Doorways. Black Lines are normal walls and/or Stall dividers.
Stall size: Regular stalls are 12x12ft, Mini Stalls are 8X8ft, The Large Stall is 12x16ft with a sloping angle reaching 8ft. The stalls would have Wood/bar sliding fronts with concrete block dividers (Blocks would be lined to kickboard level in rubber matting.) I haven't decided if I would put bars in the dividers or not. Any thoughts on this?
Tack Room is 24x24ft. The Interior stairs lead to an Apartment/House on the second story. In my own imagination, the tack room will also hold a small Sink/Toilet Bathroom off to the side.
Wash area is approximately 14x14ft with a small indention due to the wall.
"Quarantine Area" is added mostly due to my imagination, but while also considering convenience for medical procedures/Stall rest. It would be approximately 36x24ft, while this is very large -- I can see it being scaled down with livestock panels. Better too big than too small correct? The Thicker line indicates a solid brick wall. This is for security and to prevent the spread of illness.
The paddock adjacent to the "Q-area" would be covered by the buildings roof and/or a small balcony (Living area depending.) It is 42x24ft and is accessible by the "Q-Area" Only. The fence there would be Wooden up to 5ft with bars reaching from 5ft to the 7ft mark.
So without further interruption, here is the drawn out floor-plan .
