Here are some photos of my lean-to off of my small barn. I am wanting to convert it to one or two stalls. We live in Northwest Florida so it needs to
be as ventilated as possible, and most of the barns in our area have a few inch gap between the boards.
22 feet long
10 feet wide
6'8" tall at lowest point, goes up about a foot.
Here is what I have drawn up so far. This is NOT to scale, sorry for the crudeness!
The black in the middle is where the stalls would be divided, with wood on the bottom then cross fence all around each stall and as a partition.
There would be two stall doors though there is only one in the picture.
Here are the questions I have:
- Will I have to raise the roof? The lowest part of the barn (where the doors will be) is 6'8". The tallest horse we would get would be 16 hands,
probably more like 15 hands. The roof goes up another foot or so probably on the other end.
- How thick should the boards I use be?
- What should I do for floors, or should I leave it dirt - I was wanting to do something like gravel then stall mats, then decide on either shavings or
straw or something... But do I need a wood or cement flooring under that?
I more than likely will only stall my horse when I really need to, so I would say no more than a few times a month.. All comments/critiques and help
are very much appreciated!
