Prefab barns

Does anyone have any recommendations for prefab barn companies that service New England? I’m in CT and am looking to get a 36x36 barn.
I know of a couple companies but would love to know of any others I may not have heard of.

Morton Buildings use to make a beautiful barn.
Also look into the Amish made on site.
There is also Horizon Structures who make incredible barns in so many configurations and styles = prices.

i was asking a vet about them, he said talk to a few companies and go find their barns that are a few years old. some do decent work some do terrible work. he said you can tell some it's lack of maintenance on the owners side or a horse chewing at the wood but at 3-5years old shouldn't be any real repairs needed

Morton barn I knew about and saw was at the time 15 years old and no issues.
Was originally a private family owned then became a H/J boarding barn so lots of use and some abuse but the barn held up to it beautifully.
Snow, season changes, problems.
My friend was there at that location a few weeks ago taking a shown place still looks nice...35years later.

Yes, absolutely do go see in person and ask around your area about manufacturers you may be interested in...
Recommendations are great but you also want to see and hear those who had issue and how it was handled or not...

Some of the premier training facilities, racetracks and breeding farms in the nation use prefab buildings and have references to them on their websites so that might be another place to see and read comments.

I can also say where I am now living a feed store business was closing.
They were a dealer for Horizon Structures and had 2 buildings on their property as demo but then sold to clear the land of business dealings.
Those barns were 10 years old then, now 10 years later and I still see them in nice shape and no major issues and they have "0" maintenance done to them...just sitting in a field for run-in shelter and the other is a 2-stall barn for the horses.
Wish I had been 10 minutes sooner I would of gladly bought them for my horses shelters...

Not that I couldn't be totally wrong but I think Morton only does on site building not prefab. It has been many years since my brother used their kits to build barns so it's quite possible they've started a new line within the business. He switched to Wick barns because he thought they were a better product but they're also one who delivers kits and then are built on site.

I realize this thread is two months old, but here's a suggestion: BarnPros.

Not sure if it can be considered a true "pre-fab" but if not, it's very close. You pick a style and add whatever options you want. They then ship a package with instructions. While they don't have their own building crews, any decent contractor can easily assemble the parts. BarnPros are on the west coast, but ship all over the country.

I'm in NY and had a hard time finding local people who could build what I want for a reasonable price. I went to all the horse expos and must have spoken to two dozen different barn builders. In the end, BarnPros and a local contractor were my best option. It wasn't the cheapest, but it was also far from the most expensive. I also did a 36x36. Three stalls on one side, two open bays with tack room on the other, plus an upstairs hay loft. I'm very happy with the final product.
