how much?

How much does it cost to build a nice three stall shelter or even just a nice leanto?(sp?)...Winter is coming and we need to do something about shelter. I prefer my horse to have some type of shelter other than a turnout winter blanket. A rough estimate of a functionable shelter please?

It's hard to give you an accurate number because of location and lumber prices, not to mention labor wages. On our 3-stall barn, we have a 30x10 awning off the front that we are currently having turned into 2 more stalls and a tack room. The roof was already up, but for lumber for the rest of it was around 2k. Labor is costing $600, as the contractor is a close friend of 4y mom's.

Of course, the 2k is for all treated wood, 4x4 framework, T1-11 for the outside, tongue-and groove 5 ft high on all sides, and two dutch doors on each stall. You have to add roofing to this, also. We already had the roof and some of the framework in before this project, so we didn't have to worry about it. I can't remember how much it cost....

I would think you could build a simple lean to for 300.00-500.00 for material depending on size and such. That is with metal siding and constructed like a pole building. Be sure to line the inside with plywood so they do not kick through it and injure them selves

Okay 300-500 is more in our range,lol.
I'm thinking a lean to made out of wood and a tin roof but have it insulated up top so to keep the rain from being so loud..to muffle it some. That's what we had at the stable we boarded at before the owner passed away...now we are starting over completely! Lots of things to do.
