Barn plans?

Anyone know any good sites for barn plans? I am trying to design a small, 2 stall barn with a feedroom. I have a 22X22 ft shelter with a concrete floor and a roof- that's it. It was used for RV storage but the RV is going. My husband is a carpenter and I have been trying to describe how I would like it to be, but I don't know some details like how wide the aisle should be, etc.

Google barn plans.

An aisle any smaller than 10' wide is really hard to use.

Thanks Alwaysbehind- I was wondering whether to include an aisle at all, but it would be really nice to have an indoor area for grooming, hoof trimming, etc.

I like having an aisle, it makes it easier to feed and all that stuff. And yes, it gives the farrier and vet some where to work that is not in a stall.
But if you do not have room for one, no biggy. Stalls work. Just put a tie spot in your stall.

You could do two 12x11 stalls with a 10 foot wide aisle and keep your grain and tack on one end of the aisle. As long as the space works for you, that's all the matters.

Barn Plans

I have loved horses since I was little, I have been lucky to have an uncle with a ranch were I would spend summers riding. Now, i'm going to school to become a vet. I bought a property 50 acres and need help with how to lay out the buildings. I would like a 10-15 stall barn with the possiblity of a little apartment above the stables to house guest. Does anyone know where I should start and plans they would suggest I look at. Thanks again

Wow, that's very clever DutchFeather that you were able to post a drawing like that!
I'm impressed- I can barely even upload a photo! I like it, too- it is very close to what I had in mind. Thanks

I spend a lot of time drawing my "dream barn" haha, so coming up with a "quick-fix" barn design is easy

Okay- another question. I would like the horses to have access to their stalls from outside ie.-doors in the back of the stalls. How wide should the doors be?
