Do you like this barn?

How can I delete this thread?

Okay, thanks :) I designed a barn but for some reason I couldn't get it on here.

Keep trying, I would love to see your barn. What seems to be the problem with posting it?

It says it is in a download file.

I drew it, got it scanned at school (it was part of my project) Then sent it to my hotmail as an attachment. And for some reason I can't post it :(

Yay! I am soo happy right now!

Okay, now I can explain my awesmazing barn! :)

I drew it on graph paper so you can kind of see the little squares. Each square represents 6 feet by 6 feet.

The Big area with the letter A is my indoor arena. Standard dressage arena. 66 feet by 197 feet.

I can have 32 stalls (16 on each side) 12X12 stalls.

The slashes are doors.

H- stands for where the hoses will be. I have two.
B- stands for Bathroom.
F/O- stands for Feed and Office area.
T- stands for Tack room. It is 13F by 72F. I want to be able to have at least 32 tack lockers (4F wide 4F deep and 6F tall)
ST- stands for stairs.

I want the loft to cover the whole arena and stalls but not the bottom part. I will store my hay and shavings up here ad well as other things.

The whole dimensions not including the Tack room are 108F wide 221F long and 24,804 square feet (I don't think that includes the Arena)

I like it a lot! Especially having the indoor as a standard size ring. Too many people regret not having the correct dimensions.

You are keeping shavings in the loft? Are you using bagged shavings? If not, how are you getting bulk shavings up there?

You need to build it in Chapel Hill, NC. That way I can go there!!

Yeah I was thinking bagged shavings as that's what we only have here. If not I will build a covered and paved area.

I really wanted the standard because it is nice and big to easily extend gaits as well as be able to have 3 or 4 riders ride comfortably.

Hopefully close! So you can come and do clinics ;)

The people with horses in the stalls at the back will have LONG way to walk to the tack room. Plus half your stalls have no windows, and if you add a loft too the ventilation won't be great. Is there a reason why you wanted your barn this shape?
