Barns in Oregon?

Hi guys!!
I'm currently working on getting my 5 acre place set up for boarders.
I am in the process of (trying to!) build an arena, and just got the fences all fixed up. I am also now working on my (non-existent) tack room! Right now my tack just has to be put in our pump house.

Anyways! I am looking around trying to find a company that builds barns, or some advice on if I should build one? I am planning on just a basic 3 or 4 horse lean to (I will attach a picture of one I liked) with a decent sized tack room. I'm thinking just basic wooden doors, instead of the metal bars or at least and probably supports for the overhang (more like the this, but three horse + tack room: http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl...:15,s:63,i:323).

Has anyone around Bend/Madras got any ideas for where to look?? I'm looking for something pretty cheap, and not overly nice. I just need something to keep my saddles clean and dry, and to stall the horses up in the winter/for emergencies.
Anything is helpful!
Thanks!!

Sorry, don't know any builders up there, but I love Bend! Such a beautiful place, go skiing there often.

Hey neighbor! (I'm in Terrebonne). Noble Panels is out of Oregon and they have some nifty kits. I am in the process of getting a loafing shed from them.
Noble Panels - Horse Stalls - Dividers and Horse Barns

There is also MDBarnmaster:
MDBarnmaster - Build A Better Barn: 800-343-2276

And there are some local contractors, but everyone I spoke with was rather pricey ($5000+ for a little 12x24 3 sided shed!) hence why I am going with Noble.


Best of luck!

Whee! More Oregonians! Haha I'm in the southern area, outside of Medford/Eagle Point. I second what the above said. :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

We've used Parker Buildings in Hubbard (South of Portland).
Parker Buildings, Inc. Home

You could ask if they have a way to ship the kit to Bend. They quoted us something like $2200 for a 12'x24' 3-sided pole-barn with a "covered front porch" area. That's kit only, not installation.

Have you checked out www.dcbuilding.com ? They are based in Portland, Oregon but travel all over building barns. They have built quite a few of them in Oregon. Check them out!

Barns

I am working with John of Oregon Barn Co. On a Choice barn. Super nice guy to work with and very helpful.

I like the idea of the barn being chew-proof and fire-resistant. I have been looking at a 2-stall Shedrow and it look like that is the way I am going to go.

Check them out at www.choicebarns.com

Good luck on your new barn. I am excited to get mine I know...
