the Barn is "coming along"

front has 2 sliding doors that open to the center aisle, as does the back - each side also has two sliding doors, one of which  opens to each of the stalls (4 stalls/4 doors) - we opted for sliding doors to access the stalls vs Dutch Doors


each stall is 12x12, as is the wash room (shown at the back of this pic) - two more stalls on the other side of the center aisle with a (12x12) tack/feed/fridge room


this pic was taken from our front yard - shows the back of the barn and can possibly make out the section of fence that we took out, installed new 2 stout posts and, after the concrete "sets", we'll install a 12' stock gate (that'll give us access from the house, thru that gate, to the barn

I'm impressed Tango.  You've obviously got a great construction manager!

we're thinkin' of having a "Barn Raising" when it's finished and we get our Boys up here - some catered BBQ and liquid libations

will let you know "when" and perhaps you can make the drive East, out I-20 or 80, and see our handy-work 1st hand

I'm gonna post an invite for any forum member who happens to be in the area   :th_thicon_idea:

Thanks.  We're looking now for that 'last move' and thinking outside the metro area.

Looks nice Tango. Your set up is a tad more than I plan for my final landing spot l.
I dont plan to build quite as elaborate on my lil 10.5 acres when I do build.

Im a few yrs from moving out to it from SA. Plan to be low key place Im not planning on livestock just dog(s).

Im leaning toward a barndominium set up with a second floor living quarters and a barn/shop/garage set up.

It is just a little east of Sequin  out I-10. Im in the pre cleaning land preparation stage now. I have to do well septic elec anyway before I can settle there.

Right now its more like a deer camp get away set up.
Have a portable 12x24 building as shelter now.

another new stock gate up and in - that makes 3 plus a little walk-thru gate

the Barn is coming along - will get pics of the inside after it's cleaned up by the workers

plumbers will be here today to plan on what's needed - electrical has already been decided

and.....we're startin' to get some fairly good weather (finally) - at least for a couple of days
