Barn construction troubles
The guy building our "barn" started yesterday. Our 2 horses will have plenty of land and this is mostly a run-in shed. It will be 24 x 24, with a small tack room and feed room. So the problem is that he put all of the posts in 8 feet apart. This means if we have stalls (which in my opinion we don't really need, but DH thinks we do) that are 12x12 there will be a post from ceiling to floor in the middle of it (not truly the middle, but you get the idea). Even if I convince them to leave it without stalls, just to be an open shelter - there will be these posts every 8 feet.
Our horses are 14 hands right now and one will grow to about 15 hands. Is having these posts every 8 feet going to be a huge problem? I kinda think we should have this guy start over now and put in bigger posts 12 feet apart, rather than be unhappy for the next 20 years, especially when we're paying good money to have this built.
