Over the years here at FS Construction Services we have talked often about the many uses and benefits of wood and steel buildings. Much of the time these buildings are used for storage, vehicles, and agricultural equipment. Recently, however, we had the chance to construct a building for another means of transportation: horses.
Wood and Steel Storage Buildings
This 54’ x 88’ x 16.5’ multipurpose structure was actually built to fulfill a variety of purposes, including: suburban storage, machine storage, general purpose, and horse stable. This building is constructed with strong, patented 5’ x 6’ laminated columns, creating a very durable structure. Additionally, we installed R19-rated wall insulation and R42 blown insulation in the ceiling to provide year-round comfort for both animals and people.
One of the most exciting features of this project is the actual horse stalls themselves. We built four individual stalls, but installed a custom, moveable stall/wall divider that can merge two of the stalls together, creating a huge third stall area. Over the stalls we constructed a loft to provide further storage space.
This project also included four overhead doors, two are 18’ x 14’, one is 18’ x 12’, and one that is 12’ x 12’. These are Raynor Aspen AP200 series doors featuring window panels and nylon rollers for extended life and performance.
While we worked hard to make the interior as comfortable as possible, our client wanted to make sure they had an attractive exterior too. This building features: 4’ high natural rock wainscoting, (2) 3’x 3’ cupolas with windows, a cedar truss covered door entry, 48’ x 10’ Dutch finish back porch, double Dutch doors for exterior stable entry, upper windows with fixed insulated and lined eve lights, and three walk-in doors with keyless entry.
While this was a pretty feature-rich project, we construct all kinds of buildings for all kinds of purposes, from simple storage sheds to comfortable office spaces.
