I just helped a friend of mine build her barn. I was a little skeptical at first but she got something called stall skins. It allows urine to pass through it. So the very bottom on the stall is dirt, then there is 8 inches of pea gravel in there then the stall skins go on top. She uses about 1/2 as much bedding, the pea gravel makes a great "cushion", and it never smells! You can also strip the stall and hose the mats if it every does get smelly, which they haven't.

I would talk to some people (vets, horse profesionals, ect...) about ventelation in the barn.

That is the #1 problem I see/hear about in most horse barns.

I know in the dairy industry a lot of places have been retrofitted with a foreced air system: fan pulling air from outside, pushes it through a tube with some holes placed in it to bring in fresh air.

If you arn't going to have exterior doors to each stall I would consider either a window or a curtain with some hard mesh over it to keep the horses from destroying it so you can adjust air flow depending on weather conditions
