Custom Barn Design Options & Advantages


Designing your own horse barn allows you to have the style you want while ensuring you get the practical advantages you need. At J&N Structures, our custom horse barn contractors use modular construction to produce the highest quality structures, a convenient timetable, and the best prices. When designing barns, your location is the first consideration. Our Amish barn contractors enjoy matching the architectural style of your home to make your custom barn design look like it is an original part of your property. Your horses’ needs, the look you desire, and the attributes of your property will help guide the options for your custom horse barn design.

Most Common Custom Horse Barn Structures

When building a custom horse barn, you can make choices that tailor the structure to your needs and wants. The two most important decisions to make when beginning the barn design process are selecting the exterior barn style and the internal layout.

When deciding on you barn’s style, the most common choices include:

  • Shed row barns
  • Center aisle barns
  • Monitor barns
  • High country style barns

When you work with a custom horse barn contractor, there is no limit to the options you can select; simply provide us with your ideas, photographs, or drawings, and we will create a barn design just for you.

Benefits of Our Custom-Built Barns

At J&N Structures, our modular construction process expedites the building and installation, meaning that you wait a shorter amount of time for the completion of your custom-built barn.

We construct each custom part for our horse barns at our manufacturing plant and deliver them to your location as a fully-assembled barn. The amount of construction required after delivery is minimal, and depending on the barn design, it may not require any construction at all. This again works to ensure you get the barn you need, fully built as soon as possible. Compared to traditional on-site barn building, the modular construction process saves our customers a significant amount of money.  Truly, our custom barn building process makes J&N one of the most practical choices.

The most common custom accessories to consider for your custom-built barn include:

  • A loft
  • Tack room
  • Grooming area
  • Roof shingle color
  • Siding stain color
  • Cupola
  • Gable vent
  • Electrical package
  • Number and size of stalls

The foundation you choose for your barn design and the site preparation required is based on your needs and the building codes for your local community. We can help advise you when making these decisions, too.
