For a beautiful, strong and long-lasting home for your horses, a timber frame barn is your best choice. Our post and beam barn kits feature mortise and tenon cut eastern hemlock or douglas fir full dimension timbers, with 8×8 vertical posts and 8×10 to 8×14 horizontal beams. This heavy timber construction is practical, elegant and easy to maintain.
Each of our timber frame kits is custom built, so you can have whatever dimensions, heights, additions or special features you can imagine. Want to have a run in or enclosed lean-to on one or both sides? Hay storage on the main floor or in the loft? An apartment upstairs? Equipment storage or garage on one end? A separate or integrated hay barn, barn home or arena? If you can imagine it, we can work with you to make it a reality.
This style is perfectly suited for horses and is an economical choice. The raised center aisle (RCA) can have a loft above, for hay, storage or living space. The wings provide more headroom and great ventilation, and can be fully enclosed or a section can be left open as a run in. You can also add run ins as extensions of the wings.

The simple, symmetrical, gabled roof of a traditional colonial lends itself to many uses and offers more loft space than the monitor. This is a very adaptable design, perfect for a multi-use building. All or part of the ground floor can house the horses, and the loft (and it’s possible to have a second loft) can be used as living space, storage or a workshop. Gain height by raising the building or adding dormers.

There is no upper limit on the size of the barn you want to build. If you want a backyard barn for just a few horses or a large professional equestrian facility for boarding and breeding, we can provide all the space you need, custom-designed to your vision.
In the meantime, it can be useful to have a starting point for design and price, especially for the backyard barn. These are just some possible sizes and styles. Any barn style can be used for horses, it’s just a matter of your own personal aesthetic. Since stalls range from 10×10 to 14×14 depending on the size of the horse and how much time he’ll spend in the stall, and birthing stalls or tack rooms are traditionally larger, the interior layout is flexible.
