Has anyone here ever built a barn with living quarters in it?
We are looking into building a new facility with 2 apartments in it. We would like an indoor arena (no smaller then 60'x120', but preferably around 72'x144'), 2 apartments (one at least a 2 bedroom, and the other at least a 1 bedroom, both with 2 baths). We would like 17-24 stalls, a wash rack, tack room, feed room, sawdust storage, ect. Has any one ever built a facility like this? Around what price range were you in? The living quarters would be 2 stories, an apartment on the ground level, and the other one above it. We arn't doing anything too fancy, probably build the stall fronts ourselves, dirt isle-ways, ect.
Our current plans are as follows:
We will be building in central Ohio
a 72'x144' indoor
and feed room.
Roughly 132'x196' with the stalls on 2 sides of the arena, storage, feed, sawdust, extra tack room, and living quarters on another side.
2 large 12' sliding doors, 2 man doors, and 4 tube gates for entry to the arena.
1/2 bath for boarders
(2) 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments.
Basically, I'm just trying to get what ya'll payed for your set up. Hopefully I will be getting the actual quote next week! :-)
I know its small, and impossible to read, but here is on of the draw ups for an example.
Gosh, I know a few people who have built barns with apartments in them and a couple people who have the house/barn combinations. But, there is no way to draw a comparison since materials and labor vary so much from region to region. Also, what details you choose may be higher or lower end that what I'm familiar with.
There is another thread about this-what came up is insurance problems-you may want to check into that.
