Hello. I am new here and building a new barn this year. I was going to build a small barn but have been playing with the idea of building a larger (but not as fancy) building that I could put a round pen in. I live in a climate with very cold winters and would appreciate no wind and snow! Here's the thing, if I go with a 48x72' building (post with metal siding/roof) I think it would allow about 47' for a round pen and 24' for a row of stalls/tack room and an alley. The idea is to have a place to be with my horses in inclement weather. A building wider than that would go up significantly in price. Is this size worth doing at all?
Thanks for any input!!
