Building use, importance, and newsworthiness:

This is a professional and personal equestrian stable and training facility. The owner is well known in the quarter horse industry and needed a building system that represented him well.

Unique features:

Post-frame construction was incorporated into the architectural firm's design parameters. Wrap-around porches and unique architectural entries, stone veneers and rough-sawn architectural details, stables and arena and it is completely insulated and climate controlled throughout. Pre-engineered trusses were used and wrapped to appear like rough-sawn wood beams for drive-thru canopy.

Post-frame advantage:

Post-frame allowed structural framing flexibility and clear span solutions all while providing value and cost savings.  It also allowed for construction to continue during inclement weather.
