American Barn vs Traditional Stable:

How much does it cost?

Traditional Stables and American Barns are the most well-known and commonly sought out stable designs.

Trying to decide on an ideal accommodation to suit you and horses’ needs can be quite tricky. Barns and stable designs and how they are laid out can be very important when it comes to ensuring that your horses are comfortable and happy. Here at John William Stable, we offer various range of stables including our Traditional stables and American barns. Whilst both American and Traditional stables have their own advantages and limitation, which one you pick will depend on your space and your horse's needs. 

Here, you can find a full price to help you make the right decision.

A Cost Guide

The cost of your ideal barn and stable will vary depending on its size, roof, doors, and room ceilings. Other variables to look out for are the type of kickboards, plinth systems as well as the construction costs. Additionally, optional features can also add to your costs such as fitting anti-bite strips to your door, adding additional security locks, coloured roof, and rear guttering. You can find more about these additional features on our website here.

Cost of American Barns

American stables are ideal if you have big yards with lots of horses. With the central walkway, this design also allows for the air to move freely around the barn making it well-ventilated perfect for any weather. They are also easy to install and use.
