Make A One Stop Shop for Your New Horse Farm Buildings

In today’s frenetic world of work and play, horses and family life, saving time is literally saving money. The planning and execution of major building projects while a fun and fabulous endeavor for the ardent horse aficionado, is also fraught with challenges. Many of which even educated horse owners don’t see coming.

Back in the day, every blank slate of prospective horse farm property required much human time and energy to facilitate its development. Today horse folks are increasingly opting in for the fast, fun and fabulous way to shop for their new horse farm structures – buying modular.

The huge array of barn designs now available on a modular basis encompasses everything from a humble run-in shed to a high-end timber frame build. The all-American center aisle barn is still a very popular choice, with budget friendly low-profile options as well as the classic A-frame roof design that offers the loft space above.

The popularity of adding some form of living space to the build continues to trend upward, opening up the possibility of earning extra income through Airbnb or rental space. In fact, paying for your dream horse farm in a most innovative way is a smart way to get what you want now, and realize a good profit while you are at it. The promotion of agri-tourism in Europe has taken hold in the U.S., and people with property and the desire to leverage their ownership of rural space to build a new revenue source means often there is need for more than just a simple horse barn.

Subsequently it is not just horse barns that are almost magically appearing on site ready to go in a matter of a few hours to a few days depending on their size. It is everything else equestrians need and want to complete the horse farm project plus more.

The flexibility in customized design options for the main feature build, the horse barn extends to other building needs too. Easy clean, heated/AC commercial and residential kennels are also available to purchase with a few keystrokes on the computer or tap on the smart phone.

For people interested in a bit of light farming on the side there are multi-use structures for sale that makes it equally simple to pick up housing for pigs, sheep or a few milking goats or cows as it is to secure housing for horses.

Self-sufficiency may be on the table. Folks can buy a chicken coop and enjoy choosing from all kinds of designs. Tractor style coops, wood or metal coops, mansion styles or cottage cute designs are all ready to roll on site, which will house big and small flocks of egg-laying birds. People who find keeping horses and dogs is enough animal responsibility but still want to manage some form of self-sufficiency may consider giving greenhouse gardening a go. Fresh homegrown produce could be another family member’s interest, so a greenhouse/shed combo might be a good choice.

But the choice for instant modular structures being delivered to the property doesn’t stop there either. Once the horse arena is completed perhaps a gazebo may be needed, or a pavilion to shelter trainers and students from rain showers or the burning rays of the sun. No worries, those needs can also be accommodated.

The mind-boggling array of choice not just in one product category, but across multiple building products or adjunct requirements for a horse farm is so extensive that the idea of a one stop shop that includes offers for multiple purchase discounts mean it is truly hard to stop at buying just one.

Consider other options such as garages, storage structures, sheds and studios (make great home gyms), saunas, playsets and pool houses, firewood shacks, and equine hay feeders.

Horse folks are generally busy people. Many people juggle family life, plus commute to a job off the property, and their horse passion is just one part of a very complicated though hopefully fulfilling lifestyle. So, opting for making a larger purchase and covering all the bases figuratively and literally makes sense because it saves time, money and stress. The undeniable convenience of being able to complete the task in a one stop shop, and to work with one Project Manager to execute the delivery and details of the entire project from start to finish is one horse owners are increasingly embracing when it comes time to make a move.

Affordable financing options are often on offer at larger modular building companies which provides more buying power for the horse property owner just when they need it most. And for folks in a serious rush to secure not just as great deal but also have their structures on site right away, year-round deliveries and nationwide service is available too from buildings standing in stock on the manufacturing lot.

It does not have to be the holiday season or someone’s birthday to expand the horse farm facility or upgrade what currently exists on a property, and with the convenience of 24/7/365 access to picking up high quality modular builds of such a variety of structures means time spent on the couch can be very productive.

Less time spent stressing about lengthy construction timelines, anticipated costs, (look for a modular building company that offers to the penny pricing), noise and mess of construction crews and weather delays means more time for the horse owner to enjoy doing what they love – spending time with their beloved equine ensemble. And there’s everything right about that, as many happy horse folks have discovered by opting into modular builds.

But there is some salient advice the prospective purchaser should also know before ‘dropping the hammer’ on an online deal or telephone sale. It does pay to do your homework.

Whatever types of modular buildings are being bought there are seasonal rush periods where everyone wakes up to Spring and wants to get started so lead times to delivery especially for larger or more complex structures It is wise for buyers to plan ahead to avoid such delays.

That being said, a good modular construction company will offer firm timelines for delivery schedules. Thankfully, their stock of building materials on hand at the factory helps mitigate any likelihood of delays due to supply chain issues.

The factory environment not only negates interruptions to the construction time due to inclement weather. It also means temperature sensitive jobs like painting and staining are completed in optimum conditions. This factor translates to a better finished result in the build. Together with consistent quality control being readily available at a factory versus on site where supervision can be difficult to manage, the purchaser can feel content that the job is in good hands.

The ‘one stop shop’ option obviously requires that the buyer locate a company that offers a versatile approach to upgrades and customizations in construction features and designs as well as a myriad of type of structures to accommodate all the requirements the prospective purchaser desires to include in their project.

Companies that have a sister company that specializes in other builds such as garages, sheds and storage buildings will often embrace the multiple discount option and work together to bring the entire building project together. This is a great way to go if you are also building a new home where adjunct non-horsey buildings like shelter for your other type of horsepower is needed. Multi-use buildings for horses and vehicles is another option.

There is no question that in today’s world of construction the horse farm owner that wants to develop a blank slate of property into something productive, functional and inventive is limited only by their own imagination when it comes to how to put the project together in a way that makes sense both financially and emotionally.

Modular construction gives horse folks a means to not just easily manage their building project but also to develop it with an eye to future needs for income streams and leverage a lifestyle for their entire family to enjoy. Don’t be shy to open the stable door to more than just horses!
