Walters quoted me $ 79,640 for a steel building. That includes erection & the building, but not the foundation or prep. But it doesn't look like they do financing.

Yeah that's going to be the biggest problem, is finding financing. So you'd probably have to find an independent bank that's willing to finance a pole barn construction. Probably not going to be the easiest thing, but I just personally feel Clearspan is double what a steel building would cost. I'll know more when I get my quote from Pole barn direct. Right now at my parents house we have a steel pole barn, and to be honest. It doesn't get that noisy when its windy or anything. Maybe that's just me, and to be honest, some noise wouldn't be bad, id consider it my barns desensitizing for me haha.

Where are you located? I would think that snow load might have a big impact on design and engineering also (i.e. Price)? We have very high snow load and slope requirements here.

Pole Barns Direct is not too far from me, but looks like I'm not in their free shipping range. Still worth me getting a quote there too though.

I live in Ohio, we got a pretty mild winter this year. Not much snow, we normally don't have extremely bad winters here. So we don't get a lot of heavy snow.

So I went ahead and made a quote with the same dimensions of the clearspan.
None of my business, but how long do you think it will take to repay this amount? I'd love to see your business plan.

Not meaning to be negative, but it'll take a lot of lessons to pay back $118,000.

I will also be offering boarding, and though I know profit isn't normally made on it, most people break even on expenses. My husband will also probably still maintain an actual job. Also I wasn't planning on going threw clearspan and paying 118k

I am going to recommend you buy a pad of graph paper and sit down and draw out what you think you need/want. Google cattle sheds, horse sheds to get some ideas. A building with stalls is quite costly, whereas horses are happiest milling about in a semi open building. Check lumber prices for 2x8, 2x10's, roof and wall sheathing, shingles. Draw everything as best you can to scale. You can make changes on paper much cheaper than once construction starts. A few corral panels enable you to set up a temporary stall if needed without building permanant stalls. Horses seek out shelter to escape the bugs, not the weather.

The building will be used as a boarding facility which is why im not building a run in. An indoor arena is also an absolute must.
