Horse Barn Goes Up In A Day
You can put up and install a 36 by 72-ft. horse barn in less than a day thanks to the modular pre-built design from Rocky Ridge Builders Inc. They deliver and set up the barn.
  The Markerville, Alta., family operation builds the components in their shop, delivers them using 3 trucks, and sets them in place using a picker truck. The barns consist of three main pieces two outside pieces and an upper level that goes between and above the outer sections. The upper level can be used as a hay loft, cozy loft apartment, studio, art gallery or guest room.
  The barns are built with pine board and batten siding, and have stalls lined with pine tongue and groove kickboard from floor to ceiling. Each box stall has a sliding door, a window, and powder-coated grills and partitions. Barn size ranges from 30 by 24 ft. to 36 by 72-ft., so there are 3-stall, 5-stall and 11-stall versions, all with a tack room. Many options, such as tie stalls, are also available.
  Pricing is dependent on location, but company owner Karl Derstine says, "sales close to home start with prices of about $30,000 for the smallest model, and can go up to $100,00 for the biggest size."      Customers need to provide a level site, which is 10 ft. bigger on all sides than the barn's perimeter. It needs either a gravel or concrete pad, or concrete footings.
  Derstine has had orders from all over Alta., as well as other provinces.
  "The design is about a year old, and there's been tremendous demand for it," Derstine says. "Right now we're booked into the fall of 2010."
