We have 3 barns, and I learned something with each one, so here's my 2 cents:
-no exposed wood. Build a MD brand or Port-A-Stall if you have to.
-packed dirt floors with rubber mats.
-Breezeway style is best. You can get in outa the weather.
-Put in at least 3 extra stalls. One for feed, one for the tractor and one for a wash rack/vet rack/shoeing spot (this is the only room in ours with concrete and a drain, but the concrete is covered with mats.)
-crossties in the stalls and wash rack.
-Nelson brand heated automatic waterers (awesome)
-overdo the lighting. double what you think is necessary.
-Align it so the stalls open out to the prevailing lee side. (our three extra stalls are upwind, and almost always closed up.)
-did I mention no exposed wood?
Spend the money, make it as easy as possible for yourself, you won't regret it.
Paul.
