I haven't been to the site in months but I was sure there was some things not included. Roof or windows...I can't recall. I could be wrong but I do remember a 2 stall barn was about 35 grand. Not including concrete. Pretty pricey but what would I know I'm only a designer and hubby a builder. :) If you can build one yourself you'd save a lot of money. They have good ideas for plans.

Oft times, with those kind of 'packages', you are responsible for site prep - fill dirt, leveling, concrete, permits, etc.
I've looked into them myself, after I built my pole barn.
Usually they are advertised with certain 'limited' amenities,
But you end up with 'add ons' which really raises the price.
It's not hard to spend $30,000. On a barn of decent size with electrical, and water, custom doors, stall fronts, etc .
I've got every bit of that in my barn (and fencing),
And a lot of it I hired a 'friend' to do (so the labor price was discounted).

Either that, or you do the 'work', or the building company subs out that work to other companies they do business with.

I love your barn too smrobs! I can't wait to be able to build my own barn when I'm all finished school.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Agreed! With the packages offered out there you will definitely end up paying for "add ons", etc. By the time you are done a $35,000 will be $55,000 or more. If you can build yourself, you'll be ahead of the game. Those packages have a upcharge on everything. A $100 window is probably triple the amount.

Love your stable. Simple is good. You have a lot of stalls..lucky you. I'm in the business of building so I will most likely build a fancy shack but only because I get really good pricing for product.

Here's a pic of my 'little' barn.
24 wide X 56 length, 2 (12 x 12) stalls, 12 x 12 tractor bay, and and a 12 x 12 tack/feed room.
Mine is simple, as well, but works great for me!!

Something like this with 10 12x12 stalls with a brown roof and hunter green walls

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
