Horse Barn Site Prep and Installation
We recommend 18” in diameter and 36” deep (below grade) and 2” – 4” above ground level concrete footers for our Modular and Lean to Barns. This will prevent the building from shifting unevenly due to ground freezing/thawing cycles which can change the ground level over time. We will provide a footer placement diagram for your specific horse barn showing exact measurements and placement. We also offer the installation of the footers. After your building is delivered, the area around the barn and under the lean-to(s) can then be back filled with crushed stone to pillar height. If you desire cement in the center aisle or under the overhang, that can be poured after the barn is delivered. The best way to anchor a barn would be to use a ¼” steel hurricane bracket. This bracket would be bolted to the concrete footer with concrete anchor bolts and then lag bolted to the treated 6 x 6 that makes up the base of the building. This anchor system is included with your barn order.
