This Gambrel Roof Makes This Shire Horse Barn Huge

Click on this picture to try to get a sense of just how much space is available if you add a loft and a gambrel roof to this large four stall horse barn building.

More than just a place to store hay or junk... Create an office, lounge or living quarters.

All four stalls include outside access through a Dutch style door. A heavy duty steel chew guard on the door's bottom half means you can open the top, to allow your horse plenty of fresh air and sunshine, without worrying about him gnawing apart the door if he gets bored.

All the windows - with shutters and screens - come as Standard Features of ALL the barns in our Backyard Barn series. Plus, lots of other extras that you can even see in this pictures...

NOTE: All barn buildings, run-in and stall dimensions referred to on this site are OUTSIDE dimensions. Exterior width measurements may be based on roof edge width rather than structure base to meet shipping requirements.
