I've looked at Barn Pros and liked the one you chose. I had a lot of feedback though that it is hard to get insurance. Have you looked into that?

:o Wish my husband had looked at that barn pro plan before he built our barn :o Good grief! The price is less than half what we paid for our barn! D: And it is GORGEOUS! Granted... the living quarters part was an afterthought here... but, still :P haha

We were going to make our barn in the making with living quarters (for 5 people!) so when we were building the house we had someolace to live. But instead we found a house to move onto our land from trailers

I will try to post some pics of my new barn. Not as big as you are wanting, but is has a VERY multi-purpose room in it. The dimensions on the room are roughly 26'X14'. We did a small 3/4 bath and a kitchenette. Hopefully it will have a Murphy bed. We bought inexpensive all weather wicker from Big Lots to furnisn it, so it will be easy to move around if someone needs to stay in it.

The room is supposed to be my office, trophy room, dress harness storage, guest house, break room, etc......

LOVE the barn!! It is 84'X 40', with a 14' shed, so the entire covered part is 54' wide.
I have 6 box stalls, and 9 standing stalls. The center aisle is16', and there is a 12' cross aisle. I need an area to harness multiple horses, so we used the area next to the office for that, which makes it 24'X 26'. This area is also the wash area.

It is not a fancy place, but I worked in a 34'X 36' barn with only 2 stalls, and a 10' aisle for 10 years.

I will hopefully do a "barn warming" reveal thread later, so I will save some other details for that, and not hijack your thread!

Urban expansion resulted in the demo of a barn with lq so no pics. It was on the side of the barn. One entered the big barn door, then about 10' was the door to the lq's. It was two bedroom. Should a barn fire have happened the windows were low enough and big enough for a hasty exit. When building over top, people don't seem to realize how fast a barn becomes engulfed in flames, worse than a raging forest fire because the dust ignites. I've seen two and hope to never see another.
