Well what size are you looking to build. We had a 36' x 40' barn built this spring. I love it and so do the goats. We built along the line of a horse barn for resale value.
Here is the front just before we finished it.

here is the inside view of the stalls as they were being built. The 2 on the ends are 12' x 10' one is the buck stall and the other is for birthing and new commers. The center stall is 12' x 20' and is for the girls.

This view shows the exit door for the goats.

Here is the main loafing stall for the girls it is in the center and is 12' x 20' with a u shaped sleeping bench on one end.


If you want to build one this size I can give you more info like ceiling hight, loft and tact room.

Thanks, everyone about my barn. I love it and never thought I would have a barn like this. We had it built and materials and labor was $14,000.00. :grit: Now I think I will be in the hole for a while with my little goat hobby. Oh well dh's Duck hunting venture has cost that and more over the last 5 years.

Now the little touches like hay feeders and sleeping benches are all my handy work. I love building things for my goats. Also the barn is rough cut lumber which is more expensive than metal but dh said if we are going to do it he wanted it to look like a real barn. We already have a metal shop.

That seems like a great price for what you got. A guy her is building a Morton building about the same size. Reverse the 1 and the 4. Yep, $41,000!!!! So I think you did ok spending 14. Enjoy it!

And BTW, that is the cleanest barn I've ever seen!
