I just had 10' x 10.6' stalls built. The contractor used oak boards everywhere except the bottom boards - they're pressure treated because of contact with urine. The posts are pressure treated as well. We went with double dutch doors which are easier to build and cheaper.

As far as size, I thought my gelding would seem squished but at 15.2 hands he's been laying down, rolling, and just fine in a stall that size. Granted I would love to have gone bigger, but sometimes you have to work with the space you're given :)

Not sure if they would work for you but you asked for pictures of self made stalls. Here is mine. They were done a loooong time ago and since I hardly use them these days they do need a bit of repair work done in places that I've not bothered with. It was very cost effective as the lumber was milled out of the woods, split the lumber with the gentleman who milled it - win/win for both parties.

Don't mind my dirty ol' barn but here is what the stall fronts look like

Here's our homemade stalls. This is before the feed doors were built.

Very nice! We are planning on building something similar. What did you use along the bottom of the stalls between the stalls and the dirt? 4x4s? Also what did you use for your metal slats? I was looking at plumbing pipe, but wasn't sure about the weight.

Thank you. My husband is not here for me to tell you exactly what he did but I think the pipe is from the electrical section and then we did pour a concrete footing for the stalls and built on top of that. I can get details from him later if you want me to.
