You should keep the following in mind when planning to build a horse barn:

  • Make sure your local zoning ordinances allow for such a structure. You may be required to obtain a variance.

  • The most inexpensive structure is a pole barn.  You really don't need pole barn plans for a simple pole barn. If you can find a friend or neighbor that has built one of these before to help you, you should be able to build a pole barn as shown in the links below - they are fairly easy to build. Otherwise, you could hire a carpenter or handyman to get you going. Make sure to use proper footings (or a slab) and make sure your area of the footings/slab is well drained.  If needed, bring in plenty of fill.  If you build with a poor foundation in a wet area, the barn will quickly sink, shift, or heave due to frost. You can never put in too much fill - the higher and drier, the better.  Take good measurements when laying the pole barn out so as to keep everything square.  When you put up the trusses, make sure to have lots of help!
