I’ve been saving and getting designs in mind for a while and the plan was to build a shedrow barn or something similar for my horses this year; however, the lumber prices are giving me pause right now. I have two horses and I guess a run-in would be a minimum need, but I’m not sure what to do. I’ve been looking at metal buildings tonight as well as some of the pre-fab that you can have hauled into your site. Am I missing anything? Do any of you have any ideas on how to get a permanent shelter set up? I was hoping to keep my initial budget around $5k (willing to do much of the work outside of framing myself) but now I’m hearing of people who are getting outrageous quotes on small decks on their homes due to the lumber prices.
I have a 20x20 concrete workshop that has power to it that I have used in a pinch, but with my 2 guys being 17hh and 15hh there’s not enough room for two 12x12 stalls. Hay storage is currently in temporary sheds. It’s not a good setup. Help?
