Most of us equestrians dream of the day to have our dream barn. That dream barn is often at home in our personal farm. While our team is often involved with large barn projects, we wanted to write this post to inspire our clients who want to build smaller dream barns in their property.
Here are five horse barns with six horse stalls or less – proving small-scale barns are not lacking in the design or quality.
The first barn that we’d like to feature is a project that we completed for a fantastic interior design outside of Nashville, TN. This barn was built with the intent to house our client’s horses, but also use the center aisle for entertaining guests. We worked with our client and her vision to tastefully bring it to reality. In the end, our team helped Julie Davis Interiors by custom building European Horse Stall Fronts, Partial Privacy Stall Partitions, and providing custom interlocking rubber mat kits for each stall.
Who said that the barn is JUST for horses? This barn provides clients inspiration that our beloved barns can also be multi-use for entertaining purposes at times.
The next barn that we’d like to feature is a beautiful, airy barn in Morriston, Florida. This client has had vast experience in building barn – this being her third barn! For this barn, our client chose for it to be very open and expansive in nature. She chose our custom Sliding Horse Stall Doors for the barn interior. Each door was custom built using a mesh bottom to help promote ventilation, visibility into the stall, and allow sunlight into the stall. Each stall door also included a v-shaped yoke on the top for socialization along with a beautiful steel center and bottom rail.
Our team then helped custom build grillwork to match on the stall fronts and stall partitions. Last, but not least are our Full-Sized Stall Gates positioned in the back of each stall. This decision was to match the aesthetics of the Sliding Stall Doors – while providing our client’s horses easy and safe access to Paddocks.
The last detail we loved about the above barn is the farm’s name. You can find the signage on the top left corner showing the farm’s name: Hiraeth. This is the meaning of that term: “A spiritual longing for a home which maybe never was. Nostalgia for ancient places to which we cannot return. It is the echo of the lost places of our soul’s past and our grief for them. It is in the wind, and the rocks, and the waves. It is nowhere and it is everywhere.”
It is truly a privilege to work with clients in bringing their dreams to a reality. It’s even more fulfilling when we get to see that that a barn holds such a unique significance in our clients’ lives.
While the previous two barns are located in Northern & Central Florida, this last barn is located in our backyard in Virginia. This barn is a charming 4-stall barn for a family’s four horses. Our client had recently moved into the area purchasing a new farm property. Our team then helped client with a full renovation. This project includes brand new grillwork, custom Sliding Horse Stall Doors, blanket bars, and our black rubber pavers.
Similar to the previous barn, these Sliding Stall Doors include a v-shape yoke top and mesh bottom. The difference though is in the center and bottom rails. This Virginia barn features our wood-insert HVH center and bottom – as opposed to a steel in-fill. This slight difference gives this barn that classic look that is synonymous with Hunt Country Virginia.
While our team works on many large equestrian facility projects, we find just as much pleasure in helping our clients with their smaller private barns. We help clients across North America bring their dreams to a reality – whether that is new barn construction or a barn renovation.
