Wink Describe your dream barn?

Just wondering what your dream barn would be? Mine is a 6 stall half with runs with a wash bay with tack cabinets in each stall for keeping each horses individual tack. Just think no tack room to worry about keeping clean!!! Open slots above each stall for hay to be dropped in. Across from a heated/cooled indoor arena! whats yours?

12 stall barn, 12' by 12' stalls with heated automatic waterers, fully matted, grated cement aisleways, a feed room, tack room, a mini stall, and a wash stall. Plus upstairs a bathroom and a lounge/office. I have it drawn up, will put pics up in a bit!

A double aisle barn with 22 12'x14' stalls with 48'x12' runs and four 18'x14' stalls with 48'x18' runs. The middle part of the barn has an office, bathroom, two tack rooms w/ lockers, wash/dryer room, feed/med room, two wash stalls, two grooming bays, an 18'x28' foaling stall, and two 14'x24' mare and foal stalls (I think the measurements are right for the foaling and M+F stalls. but I'm working off memory). I'll also have an apartment or two above the middle section of the building. This is just my dream barn for a boarding operation... it would change a lot if it was a training barn, and it is vastly different from my TB breeding/training barn plans.

I'd love to eventually board Indie at a barn with pretty decent sized stalls (although her stall now is relatively roomy), with a wash stall.. a heated indoor arena (right now it's not heated), and a big outdoor arena for the summer months. Maybe some access to nice trails, and a bigger tackroom, maybe with personal tack lockers? And if the indoor arena was somehow attached to the barn, that'd be even better! Also a room for feed/medications/etc.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

I've always heard that heated indoor arenas are not good for horses because of the fumes?!?!?! is this true?
