Customize Your Horse Barn with Our Team

Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you’ll be using your horse barn, how it fits within your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the building to ensure that your horse barn is equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.

Once we get an idea of what building kit best suits your project, we work with you to add customization options to your horse stable plans, including a wide variety of doors, windows, and exterior color schemes. The ease of steel construction allows us to modify layouts and add further customizations without breaking your budget. From design to construction, we provide the materials and expertise to transform a building kit into a horse barn.

Stronger and More Reliable Buildings

Steel is the world’s premier building material because of its strength and durability. Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any construction material, which means steel components add strength without adding stress to a building’s frame. This strength gives you and our team more flexibilty when it comes to your horse stable plans. And of course, a stronger, more secure structure protects your valued animals from dangerous weather events or fire.

Steel construction is especially important when it comes to protecting your building and animals from pests. Raccoons, possums, mice, rats, and termites are common threats to traditional wood stables. These pests can not only threaten the structural integrity of your horse stable, but they also can target your livestock’s feed supply. A steel building keeps these pests and any dangerous health hazards away from your horses.
