I have my dream barn it was my dad's before he has 4 12'x12' stalls a 12'x12' wash bay and a office, tack, feed room, with a small loft that will hold 200 bales on about 8 acres. I can have Me 2 horses and can take on 3 borders.That's enough to keep my busy with out really having to work hard at it.
That's all I want I don't want to have to work so hard that it's not fun anymore.

Super clean, super tidy and absolutely no mess or tools etc out of place! Not so worried about size as I only have the one horse! :)

Well my dream is coming true in the next year or two! We are building a barn with a really nice sized indoor, 12 stalls that are 12x12, (including one that can be opened up for a broodmare), wash stalls, tack room, feed room, a pasture for mare and foal, a few pastures, 100x200 outdoor arena, and eventually a xc couse!

My dream barn would be what we had when I was a kid.

Our barn had 44 - 12x12 box stalls, fully insulated barn. with automatic heated Richie water heaters, hay was dropped from upper loft into stalls. 12' isle ways, wash rack indoors with hot water (outside wash rack cold water only)
Indoor 80x110 arena with an upstairs observation deck, lounge with game room, wet bar all surrounded with sliding patio doors to lead onto the balcony over the area.

Four huge pipe paddocks for safe turnout. Three different hay fields for everyone's needs. 160 acres of trails to explore.

My dream barn would have:
. 15 12x12 stalls.
. 4 cross ties.
. A wash stall.
. A tack room.
. A feed room.
. Somewhere to store hay.
. A HUGE indoor arena, big enough to have a full-sized dressage arena, jumps, and extra space.
. A cross country course, ranging everywhere from beginner novice to advanced.
. A round pen.
. Large paddocks for turnout.
. A second level to the barn with a lounge area and living quarters for me and whatever pets I end up having.

It's a bit extravagant, I know...

We are having a small barn built this spring as soon as the snow melts. I am hoping it will be my dream barn. A contractor is building the shell and we will finish the inside. Here's what I am planning:

36' x 36' metal pole barn with 10x10 sliding doors front and back so you can drive through it. Full length wall lights on each side. And I want a cupola...

Flowers and a wrought iron bench out front.

12 x 12 tack insulated tack room lined with pine tongue and groove boards. Wood floor covered with rubber mats. Wall hanging cabinet for medicines and poultices, 4 saddle racks, 4 blanket bars, bridle and halter hooks for each horse.
2 - 12x12 stalls with full fronts and sliding doors. Sand over clay floor with thick rubber mats
2 - 12x12 fence rail stalls with removable partition. Sand over clay floor. (This can be used for hay storage and bales of bedding)
1 - 4 x12 tie stall with rubber floor.

The centre aisle will be 12' wide and covered with rubber "paving stone" mats. All walls will be covered with 2"x6" kick boards up to 4' high and 2x6 t & g pine boardsup the wall.

Did I miss anything?

Oh lord, 24 14x14 stalls. 20 ft wide isles. And the arena of the end so you can watch as you are tacking up. Heated tack room and 4 cross ties. It would be completely closed in with arena being 100x150 ft. The stalls would have runs off them and the two on the end would wrap around making them run along side the walkway to the 100x200 outdoor and eventing course. I'd also like the fencing to be white and about 10 large paddocks with auto water and a few pastures fully seeded.

Live to ride. Ride to live.
