You'll want to take a closer look at this stunning 44 foot by 60 foot Great Plains Western Horse Barn with a 10-foot open lean-to located in North Carolina. All Sand Creek Post and Beam by Timberlyne packages feature the strength and beauty of post and beam timber frame construction. Their custom-designed barns have been used for horse barns, detached garages, equipment and toy storage, party barns, event centers, loft living, and wedding facilities. The barns are rustic yet sophisticated, the barns are pre-manufactured, shipped as a kit, and built to last generations.
The ultimate goal of this barn-style home design was to create a non-traditional horse barn. The memorable blue hue and layout were carefully thought out. Bardi Designs carefully helped plan out every detail within the barn. The barn-style house took about 6-8 months from design to completion of the building process. One of the first steps in the process was to go antique shopping for interesting pieces and inspiration for the barn. The barn is a post and beam barn, the unfinished body was from Sand Creek Post and Beam. The barn was delivered in pieces on two eighteen-wheelers. The client hired the builder Cade Construction who contacted Sand Creek Post and Beam to take care of the body and the engineering. Additional details were added to the exterior of the barn including the stone and cupolas. The following are some of the features and details of this barn-style home.
The exposed metal roof was intentionally left open to give the barn-style house a rustic feel. The large barn quilt was custom painted by a local artist. The chandeliers are from Troy Lighting. The stunning classic equine stalls were personalized. The barn has five Classic Equine stalls inside. They were numbered and had dark stained Xs added to the fronts to meet the barn’s ascetic.
Hay and Grain Room. Hay and feed are now stored inside this barn space. The black can lights provide plenty of light with their up and downlighting features. They are from Capital Lighting Gallery in Raleigh.
Feed room with rustic crates. The milk crates are all antique and were custom painted. Each piece inside the barn has a story and was carefully selected. Most of the items are sourced from local North Carolina dealers and vendors. The client was very active in the design process to ensure the finished barn was truly a reflection of her wishes.
Tack room with sink and fridge. Tack Room and Office. The tack room has built-in storage for saddles and tack. Saddle racks and storage inside the barn. Reclaimed wood was painted or stained and used throughout the interior for thoughtful details like shiplap.
The old stove inside the tack room. The wood-burning stove was found in the original home on the property. An antique wood fireplace was sourced and then cut in two to create an artistic approach behind it. There are painted cement tiles inset within the mantle to provide some pattern and a pop of color.
