Post frame barns—or pole sheds as they have been referred to—have come a long way over the decades. Today’s post frame builders can offer new barn design styles and accessories for a modern style and layout.

A multi-purpose barn can be designed in a variety of ways to meet your specific needs. Have machinery or feed you want to store? Box or classic stalls? Make your life (and your horse’s) easier by including features like a wash bay, tack room and more—the open plan capabilities of a post frame barn are perfect for your equine operation.

Trends in horse barn design

New trends we are seeing in horse barn concepts:

  • Hip Roof Barn Style

Gone are the days of inefficient hip roof barns. We can now combine the efficiency of post frame building materials for this unique style of building. Hip roof barns can be designed for a variety of uses including storage and insulated work areas.

  • Combination Use Barn

Why settle for a single use barn when you probably have a number of roles you need it to play. Post frame designs give you (almost) unlimited flexibility. Think big about all of the ways you could use your barn: cold storage area for your tractor, feed storage, insulated area for office, bathroom or kitchen, classic or box stalls, wash bay, tack room and more.

  • Accessories

Add a variety of custom options from wainscoting, soffit, dormers, decks, mezzanines, lean-tos, doors, Perma-Column concrete post or Hardie Board siding, it’s easy to add your own personal touch to your barn.
