EDITOR: Here’s our pick of pre-engineered, custom, modular and just plain gorgeous, practical barns for the working ranch. The barn is special to WR readers. It is a gathering place, somewhere to plan the coming day or reflect on the one that just unfolded. It’s a place to witness the miracle of calving, or shelter your beloved horses from the rain and snow. Your gear is stored with pride in the tack room. It’s home to the best kitty cat you’ll ever want to meet. It smells like hay, horses, leather…and heaven. Take a look at what we found.
Stockade Buildings specializes in pre-engineered barns custom designed to suit most any horse housing need. The Rafter “S” System post beam construction provides a clean and open interior, lending itself to unobstructed airflow and proper ventilation.
Stockade’s stalls are as strong as they are easy on the eye. The stalls are built from high quality southern yellow pine and can be equipped with a variety of stall fronts based on individual needs and preferences.
Although equine facilities are Stockade’s specialty, Stockade Buildings are not limited to housing horses. Stockade stalls are suitable for cattle, their barns also house everything from tack and hay to machinery and even people. Their popular Custom Red Stall Barn has been duplicated and converted into one part stall barn and one part home.
