Yesterday I was bored so I (coinsidentally, didn't see this thread ) started designing my future house/stables set up... This is what I came up with. Its red sandstone, traditional cumbrian style building, with the house, hay store/storage area and some open style stables to the back. It would be an old disused farm building that I did up myself (if I ever have the money!). And of course the 100s of acres of land I can only dream of owning, would spread around me in every direction... Well, meby one day??

The first one is simple, i'd just like a different style roof (gambrel). I like the simplicity. The second one would be awesome, I would live in the top part, or atleast top half, other half for hay storage. But it might be a bit to costly for me. Just a dream though!!!

Uh oh.. Don't get me started!! I would have some of these as more of an outdoor stall, in a shedrow kinda. All around the stall except for the front gate and a window in the back would have grills (mesh?) and 1/4 of each communal wall with the grills would have wood so you can grain/hay/water the horses without the dominant horse getting aggressive at the other horse. And maybe instead of grills have mesh?? These stalls would be 14x14. I could always start out with these stalls as they wouldn't cost a lot at all and slowly start upgrading.



Oh! Like this! Exactly like this, except more of an overhang and bigger stalls :)



Then we would have some indoor stalls, 12x14 stall with 14x60 pea graveled/birds eyed graveled run. Stalls would look something like this.. With cinderblock to help prevent fires, and mats up to 4 feet to cushion blows horses throw at the wall. 2/3 of the wall between horses would have grills or mesh to provide a nice feeding/watering area without their dominant neighbor chasing them away. And, the feeding door would be removable for horses who don't bite so they can have another place to stick out their head.. And of course there would be a dutch door leading out to the run. The run would be fenced with diamond mesh and a thin plastic board on top of that.. The horse rail stuff I think.



The barns shape.. Hmmm.. Well there would be an 8 foot overhang leading out into the runs. A barn like this, but painted to moreof match the modern look of the stalls and the run overhang and the runs.


Big sliding doors on both ends that are usually left open except when its snowing with a strong wind. There would be that little side opening also so plenty of doors to escape in a fire.

If money was no object, I'd have a stone barn.



^^^ This would be a dream. Except it would have green accents instead of red. With this interior:



This tack room:



Hey, maybe I'll find out that I'm the long lost heir of some rich relative's fortune.

Mmmmm... Don't get me started!!! Let's see ... I would build it, custom, to look something like this -



Except it would be white with blue accents - and made of that sort of fiberglass metal stuff ... Fire/lightning proof ;)
The stalls and tackroom, obviously in the bottom portions -





And I would live in half the upstairs portion, the other half being for the hay.
Something like this -



And of course, the barn area would have full access to the cooler things like a fridge/microwave in the tack room, bathrooms, crossties with cold/hot water, automatic water ... the works!!

It would be a boarder and lesson barn, along with my top competition horses, all in the high levels of the Show Jumping world. I would give lessons to riders whom dream of being in top competition, along with the intermediate pepole. I would have some more instructors to help with the beginners and other kids.

Yay :p Some day!!

EDIT: Looking at the rest of the thread, I noticed I accidentally stole some pictures o.o Sorry!!! Not intentional!
