Building Spotlight

36’x72′ High Country Horse Barn

People are starting to look into multi purpose buildings combining living space with barns or garages, saving space and money. Our building spotlight is a beautiful 36’x72′ high country horse barn with a 36’x36′ Apartment in the loft area. People love the convenience of this type of building, having the apartment above is a wonderful option.



The whole process starts with an idea, a list of wants or needs, and a little help from Robert. Customers often stop by with a Draftingphoto or sketch of what they would like the building to look like, which is a great way to start the process. It usually evolves and changes becoming exactly what the customer wants.

“It’s really nice working with customers because they all have different needs. We always try to get the customer what they want at the best price possible.” – Robert

The Carriage Shed is always trying to come up with new ideas. A lot of the new concepts come when a customer has a different situation, and we have to be able to expand our creativity in order to meet all the customers needs.

A great way to utilize space in the loft area is to raise the side walls giving you a full upstairs. Adding the trim detail to the gable makes it appear as if the side walls are shed dormers, we call this a fake gable. Having a full loft gives you the option of putting in an apartment, office, workshop, man cave, lady loft, or even a play area.
