The Best Little Horse House In Texas
“It was the nicest little horse house you ever saw!” Texans love to ride horses, it’s part of their blood. But whether you’re in Texas or any other state in the U.S., your horses need a place to sleep, eat and play. Why not give your horses a metal building to live and play in? Metal buildings are more reliable when it comes to construction and they last longer than a traditional wooden barn.
What Does A Metal Horse House Look Like?
A metal barn looks however you’d like it to! Whether you need a large or small barn, a green or red barn or even a tall or short barn, a metal building will give you exactly what you need. Choosing a metal building means you have endless options for design, both inside and outside the structure. The best part? You choose what your best little horse house looks like. Metal buildings are entirely customizable.
A metal building will last longer than a wooden barn or pole barn by design. Metal buildings require foundations, and pouring a foundation ensures that your building lasts longer and looks better. If you’re worried about concrete floors hurting your horses, there are several options for flooring that can cover the concrete to protect them.Steel buildings also help protect your horse’s health. Insects and pests such as ticks and termites are less likely to invade your barn space with a metal building–they have less to eat!
Since a metal building doesn’t use the same support poles that a wooden structure does, there is a lot more room to work with inside the space. Ceilings can be made higher without the need for an intricate support system inside a metal building.
Metal barns are also easier to keep up with in the long run. There is very little maintenance associated with a metal building. A sturdy and durable commercial grade steel building system often holds it’s value longer and definitely requires less maintenance.
How Do You Build The Best Little Horse House?
Would you like a place for your house guests to sleep that’s detached from the house and need a horse house? You’re looking for a barndominium–horse stables on the first floor, with living quarters on a second story.
Customize your horse house by formulating an estimate of how much space you will need, how many horse stalls, and horse stall size. Will you need a tack room inside your barn? Do you need sleeping quarters in your barn? Will you need to build a riding arena so that you can work out with your horses year round?
The best little horse house in Texas (in any state, really) is a metal building. Build something that would make Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds proud, and that will last for generations.
