40×50 Horse Barn Plans
Our 40×50 Horse Barn Plans are a classic horse barn design, known in some areas as the monitor style or the Kentucky horse barn. Whatever you call it it is recognized everywhere as a classic horse barn design.
This barn design includes a 20′ or 16′ wide center aisle and two 10′ or 12′ wide lean to’s. In this configuration you have many options available to you. The most obvious would be to use the 10×10 areas between posts in the lean’s for medium size horse stalls. Then you will end up with a total of 10 10×10 stalls, five on each side of the center aisle.
With a full loft you can enjoy tons of square feet of space above that regular pole barn designs just don’t offer. Use it to store hay, or an out of the weather place to hide out after chores. Sometimes you just want to get away from everything, shut off that cell phone and lay back in the hay. Doesn’t that sound relaxing? The sweet smell of the hay and the sound of the gentle blowing of the horses interrupted by the cackling of that Rhode island red hen announcing to the world the arrival of a freshly lain egg.
These are full construction plans that you can build this barn from. Plus you will also get included with these plans my ebook titled How to Build Your Post and Beam Barn. The book takes you through the whole construction process step by step, including information about securing local timbers, finding the right contractors, and preparing your site.
