Lets see some barns with living quarters!

I'm trying to design the barn we will be building in a few months. It will have 14+ stalls, wash, tack, feed, bathroom, indoor arena, and living quarters. It will mostly be our private barn, but we will probably offer a few self care stalls. But anyway...we have looked at barn kits such as barnpros, uncle Howard's arena barns, ect. But we will probably hire someone local to build. But I want to see some ideas! I've searched the Internet and found a lot of neat designs, but maybe y'all have boarded at a barn like this? Show me some pictures! Thanks everyone!
Oh, and also, what are some MUST haves in a barn this size that I didn't list? We are thinking of adding a sprinkler system in the arena. And I have never boarded my horses, I've always had them at home with me, but for those of you who do board, do you prefer a large tack room, or individual tack lockers close to your stalls? Anything you really loved at a barn that others didn't have? Thanks!

I don't have a big barn, I have a small nothing but 4 stalls. Then I have a separate stall right by the house. I wish one day I had the money to build a big barn with a small area for even just a couch and mini fridge or something. I always wanted one as a little girl so I could sleep in it! :) I know my girls would have fun hanging out there! Can't wait to see everyones ideas and barns!

My current Barn has 2 apartments the BO stays in the top one you can see the windows in picture. Then the Bottom one they rent out to a outside person. The charge WAY to much for that apartment though. It is a 2 bedroom 600sqft and they charge 1200 a month! You can get a apartment here in town for less than $500 .

Unfortunately I am leaving this barn in a Month the BO have become to much to deal with and the Hay quality went to crap they raised the board by $25 because of hay. No mind you I would gladly pay more if the hay was good but this is what they want to feed my horses.

Don't Flatter yourself Cowboy I was looking at your Horse

I absolutely love the barn pro barns! But, unfortunately an indoor arena is a must have for me, and it is cheaper to do it all in one building rather then buying a barn pro barn AND a separate indoor I wish they made one with an attached indoor, that would solve everything! Lol!

Our house is attached to our indoor arena and stall area. My husband is a builder so we had very little labor cost. It's not the prettiest thing as far as houses go (metal siding and metal roof) but I love how close everything is.
