would it cost to construct a four stall center aisle
horse barn with wash stall, tack/feed room and hayloft
on your property? How much time would it take? Contractors
who specialize in building horse barns will typically
quote you between $70,000 and $90,000 and weeks or
even months to get the job done.
What if you don't need a stable that big? You've only
got one or two horses. Your budget is limited but you
still want a beautiful horse barn that is well built
and safe for you and your horses.
A prefabricated run-in shed,
shed row barn or
modular barn is the answer. Delivered as one or two pre-built
sections, these wood barns cost, on average, about 30%
less than “stick built” and take less than
an hour to a few days (depending on the size structure)
until they're up and ready to use. The kicker? No one
can tell the difference.
can make these horse barns for less because we build
your custom barn at one of our modest owner-operated
production facilities sprinkled throughout the Mid-Atlantic
region. The work is totally “hands on.”
No big factory cookie cutter production here. All horse
barn packages are built-to-order per your custom designed
layout - an added bonus that won’t cost you extra.
We then ship the modular barn in pre-built sections
to your location, and after an incredibly short time,
(as opposed to two to four weeks)...PRESTO! You now
own a beautiful tailor-made horse barn and have saved
thousands of dollars to boot.
Our customers tell us
over and over again how pleased they are with their
new horse barns and the personalized service they get
from us. No one notices any difference between their
prefab barns and older traditionally-built barns. Our
modular barns have rock solid construction and heavy
duty roof trusses engineered to meet local building
code. (Yes – Horizon Structures researches the
code for any area we deliver to!)
can a pre built barn that looks exactly like a stick-built
barn and is just as sturdy cost up to 30% less? Here's
the Inside Secret- you’re not
paying for as many man hours. When you decide to go
with a barn contractor, you pay for all the workers
that will set up a temporary office on your property
for the duration of the project - usually between two
and three weeks. Horizon Structures’ modular barns
cost far less because we only send 3-4 carpenters to
your property for 3 days to assemble and put the finishing
touches on the pre-built barn sections. That's if
you get a modular barn. For a simple shed row horse
barn or run-in shed, our driver does everything. Customers can't
believe it until they see it done.
Another reason we can sell our all-wood barns at such
a low price is because we work with Amish communities
scattered throughout the United States. These small,
local communities build Horizon Structures horse barns
to a set design and quality standard. Our customers
reap the benefit of the Amish work ethic and quality
craftsmanship without paying extra because the Amish
are a self-supporting community. Expenses such as pensions,
union dues, and health insurance, are not passed on
as part of the price of the horse barn package.
Horizon Structures horse barns are made almost entirely
in the workshop, assembly line style, ensuring consistent
standards of quality and reduced costs resulting from
higher volume production. An added benefit: your prefabricated
horse barn is protected from the elements while it’s
being put together. Additionally, this method of building
eliminates any production delays due to inclement weather
or unfavorable on-site conditions.
A big concern customers may have is the cost of shipping.
Shipping costs are calculated on a case-by-case basis
so the best advice is to contact us for a price quote.
Unless you live in Alaska, chances are you will still be well under the
cost of a traditionally built barn.
There is no guesswork if you call for a No Obligation
Quote. Just be prepared to answer a few simple questions
about the barn layout you have in mind: overall size,
number of stalls, loft or ground level storage, width
of your center aisle…and in minutes we can you
give you a very accurate idea of how much you will save
over the older, conventional method of building a horse
barn from the ground up.
A number of our customers are delighted to show their
new modular and shed row barns to those interested in
