Horses are a $10 billion industry in Pennsylvania.
Building a custom barn is
a big project. Working with a
builder who is experienced with
equestrian facilities and who
understands how to build a barn
that is functional, safe and well
designed will ensure your satis-
faction for years to come.
From indoor equestrian
facilities, to multi-stall barns,
to timeless bank barns, B&D
Builders builds beauty—designed
with benefits for you and your
horse. When planning your next
barn project, consider these tips
to enhance your design:
• Doors: From style and
wood type to finish and hardware,
your doors will add character to
your barn.
• Windows: Choose from
Dutch windows, shuttered or
sliding. In addition to making a
great first impression, adequate
windows provide the necessary
airflow for your horses to stay
healthy.
• Cupolas: From small and
simple to large and ornate, cu-
polas add functional elegance to
your roofline while also serving

Your Barn Design
as an effective method of pulling
hot air up and out of your barn.
• Horse Stalls: Consider
comfort, ventilation and style
when designing the stalls. B&D
recommends 12’ x 12’ as the stan-
dard size stall. Ask about the ben-
efits of adding sliding doors and
noise-reducing design techniques.
• Lighting: Good lighting is
essential and creates an invit-
ing environment for people and
animals. By correctly positioning
your barn and window place-
ments you can take advantage of
natural daylight.
Selecting the right builder
is an essential first step to ensure
the completed project meets your
expectations and your goals.
Cost, materials, method and
craftsmanship are all considerable
factors when choosing a builder.
When you add in trust, B&D
