my barn has space for 10 stalls (3 are finished and are being used but all the rest are going to be finished). Off the barn, I have two "run-in shed" type hangovers, on the west side of the barn, the hay is stored, and on the east side of the barn, we actually turned it into a run-in. But if I had a tractor, I would probably keep it separate from the hay :)
The exterior "shell" of the barn was already built and so was some of the inside, but it had been sitting empty from a foreclosure for two years and people had come in and stolen most of the tin and wood. The stalls were already built, albiet poorly, but they were filled with a good 3 feet of hardened poop. The people who had it before had stallions in the stalls who never got to come out and kicked thru most of the wood in the stalls. So we decided to keep the shape of the stalls (they are all a good 12 x 12 frame give or take) but completely restore them. We have 3 finished because I only need 3, but we have the materials to complete the other 7. One of the stalls is going to become a tack room.
So to make a long story short, I built the interior, but not the exterior.
