Homemade stalls

Prefab stalls just werent for us... and the cost was VERY high on them. So.. we made our own. These are 10x14 :) Only one is COMPLETE right now. Two-three more to go!

Those look great! Out of curiosity, cost wise, were they more efficient even after you added the manual labor it took you guys?

Not real tough...just set up a fence and jig to space the holes, set your depth on the gauge, and you're off to the races! Makes an awful pile of chips though! Very, very good job across the board! They look fantastic!

That being said, I went back and looked closer at the plywood door faces....
I do hope you used something stout enough so horsey won't kick through it!

If we were paying ourselves 10.00 an hour no, but in this day and age. Our labor is free for our projects. Money out out of our pocket is not. We got enough lumber/supplies to do 5-6 stalls and spend about 1200.00. Mats were free from local limestone quarry, and we've probably spent 3-4 hours a day working on them for the last week and a half.
Prefab stalls run 1,000 and up each and usually do not include wood. WHile they are convenient I don't like the "bangy" noise they make. I've also seen many that have only been up a year all rusted and rotted out on the bottom.

We arent fortunate to have awesome tools to drill the holes so I did them by hand. If your wondering. There are 57 bars down the side at 3" on center. So.. I drilled just for the sidewall last night over 100 holes. (doesnt include the fronts)

I just built a barn and I wish I knew more before we started. I got Preifert pre-fab stall fronts and I don't really like them. They rattle a lot and don't fit very well. And wood kits were separate and don't match the rest of the barn, which is stained cedar. Yours look much better. If I could afford it it I would rip them out and do something more like what you have.
