Farmpony - did they construct your barn? What size and if you don't mind a rough price?

This sin't the type of advice you asked for but I'll give it anyway. One of the reason that most small businesses fail in the first two years is because of debt. I don't believe it's a good idea to go into debt to start a business particularly a horse related business. If you are deep I debt sometimes it only takes a hiccup to put your business in cardiac arrest. If I were you I'd find a good job and eat nothing but rice and beans and drive an old clunker car until I had the money to build what was needed. You'd be suprised how soon you can save serious dollars when you get serious and live by a budget.

Mine is a six stall with room for 2 more stalls (I use that area for hay and feed storage with plans for a tack room). It has sliding doors on either side and an extra high cieling so that I can add a hayloft. It has sky lights which I don't recommend because they leak and sliding doors on both ends. 2 of my stalls have dutch doors to the outside. The overhang spans the entire length of the barn and I think it comes out 15 feet.

The company sent a crew out to construct it, we had to have the pad ready for them. They took about 3 days to put it up and it cost me about $38k.

I don't have any great pictures of it on this computer but here are a few that I do have.

The other thought we had when building were these: Horse Barns | Barn Building | Horse Barn Builders They are wooden and come already built. I wanted to buy two and have them face each other or put in an L so that somday we could close them off and make them one barn....

Im very well aware of this, we can comfortably make payments if we were financed. We have already went over expenses and budgets, and I also plan on taking a business college course to help better my knowledge. Right now husband wants to focus on getting his gym started since its more realistically obtainable at this time. This thread was just to see if financing for a stable was possible.

Thank you Farmboy

Looks to be about a 40x60 barn, correct? The stalls came with it at that price? Thank you for taking the time out to post pictures also. I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan and will be home late summer..but another deployment coming up summer of 2013. Right now I am in the planning phase and keeping my wife's big plans in check as much as possible :)

Any more info. You can provide would be great. Looking into Indoor Arenas with a shed row also.
