2018 EXPERTS DIVISION WINNERS
2018 | Horse Barns/Facilities (under 5,000 sq. ft.) | 2nd Place
Junkins Run Farm
Blitz Builders Inc.
Building use, importance, and newsworthiness: This building is a combination (3) stall horse barn, horse trailer storage with a finished office/tack room attached. Being located in the heart of horse country, we designed the building to have both the classic equestrian design and still be very functional.
Unique features: Throughout the design process with the customer we strived to make the building stand out from an aesthetic view but also be very practical. By incorporating the 36' x 36' run in section for the horses that can be opened into the stall area really allowed the customer to maximize his use of the building and paddock.
Post-frame advantage: Post-Frame construction played a crucial role in this design. It allowed us to incorporate a T-shape design with very aesthetic roof lines and cupola's but yet stay within the customers budget. The clear span advantage that Post-Frame allows gave us the ability to lay out the inside without the worry of load bearing walls and the need for turn down footers.
