Thank you, MHF, for the pics. Your barn turned out great! Love the idea of tie-rings on every stall. It had not even occured to me until you posted that I don't have a convenient place to tie my horses. In the future, I'd like to buid a hitching post. I have enough projects going on right now, though. I also like the lights in every stall. Not sure what I will be able to do there, as the building is already wired. Your stalls are nice and roomy. I'm not even sure what size I am going to build my stalls yet. Idealy, I'd like to be able to put all three on a side wall. That'd leave me plenty of room to store hay and tack. If necessary, I will build along the back wall, though. How wide are your doors?
Thanks for the link and tips, Koolio. It sounds like the tape can start looking bad after awhile. I think I'd rather go with wire and the fluorescent plastic tape.
Thanks for posting, Northern. It doesn't sound like the conveyor belts are going to work for me in my situation. The reason I need flooring is because the floor is really smooth slick cement....it was actually built to be an auto-shop. I'm going to need it all the way to the entrance and so getting it getting wet will be an issue.
I do have a lumber mill in my area. If the dimensions aren't the same for the rough cut lumber and pressure treated lumber, won't it look kind of odd if I use both? The floor is cement, so I'm sure there will be plenty of times where I have to take up the stall mats and hose the floor. So I will probably have to use treated on the bottom, right?
Thanks Northern for adding what kind of wood I should use. There are so many different kinds to choose from. It helps a lot to narrow it down a bit.
Thanks for your help, Paint. I assumed that the lumber yards would be cheaper than Lowes or Home Depot. That is suprising. Thanks for the tips about the screws. Sounds like I will save myself a lot of time and headaches by investing in a good drill.
