Monitor Modular Horse Barn

36x48 Monitor Barn with 10 ft. Overhang

Our monitor modular barns are a favorite, here at Horizon. This  modular barn is essentially three separate "boxes", one for each side of the aisle and a third creating the roof. The monitor barn's upper level is built in the workshop and shipped complete (or pre-fabricated), just like the sides. The for is then set up above the aisle with a crane, or forklifts.

One advantage of the modular monitor barn style is that we can install windows along the sides of the loft, giving the monitor exceptional ventilation and light. As with the high profile, a monitor modular barn can have a full loft, partial loft, or no loft.

Step 4:

Monitor Section Being Lifted Into PlaceHere's where things get interesting...

Loft is Lowered into PlaceThe crane gently lowers the loft section into place. Two of our workman make sure everything aligns perfectly.

After the third section is in place, the crew attaches the roof edges to ensure a secure, water-tight connection.

The final steps include adding the stairs to the loft, making sure all stall doors and windows open and close properly, and hanging the aisle doors.
