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.

An example of what I was talking about.

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?
