With two horses and a foal due the following spring, our Olympia Washington customers came to us seeking help in building a horse pole barn. Needing winter feed storage, tack room and more, our customers settled on a monitor horse barn. Beyond it’s unique shape, they loved the stalls and hayloft storage—basically utilizing every square inch of the barn. Equally important was PermaBilt®’s PermaStalls® which included three 7’ high walls consisting of 2” x 6” Standard & Better Tongue & Groove wood application, grilled stall fronts with grilled 4’ x 8’ sliding doors, feed doors with drop bar latches, and a removable grilled stall divider (which included Tongue & Groove wood on the stall separation wall). All aluminum components guarded against rust, constant abuse and corrosion year after year. Splintering, due to cribbing, was greatly reduced because all wall and door edges were framed within an aluminum U-channel.
Overall, our customers were pleased with the PermaStall® systems because of their strength, flexibility and safety. Finally, our wood Dutch doors (with galvanized t-hinges, barrel bolt and latches) offered convenient access for the horses from their PermaStalls® to their fenced paddock.
