    Interesting. They sure do look nice, don't they?

    I wonder how much it would be to order similar structures from Menard's, or to buy the plans and make them yourself?

    Looks good to me. I think the price is pretty reasonable considering lumber prices now.

    Nice looking buildings, but if you could get the plans and have enough timber/logs to bring in one of the portable saw mills (or saw millers), you could probably cut the costs considerably...but you'd have a lot of sweat equity in it!!!

    They're nice looking. Kinda pricey, but attractive. We built a similar size to their $2500 run-in shed for about $500. Now, mind you, ours is a pole-barn style, right in the ground, not movable, like these would be. But, that's a pretty big difference in price... Ours isn't as pretty, but it's serviceable.

    I think you could make them for much less. may not look so good though!

    Oz, where are you in SC. I am about 60 miles north of Rockingham, NC and I think the place that builds them here is about half the cost of these.

    As best I could tell, I don't think the stalls have floors. The price list only mentions floor material for the storage areas: 5/8" plywood no extra charge, pressure-treated at $1/ft.
