Home made horse stalls?
My husband works in a steel tubing plant and has access to scrap tubing (still good, just ends and stuff). We are looking to have 4 horse stalls put in the barn , and instead of the expensive premade ones, I thought we could make our own for way less. Has anyone done this? Are there any suggestions? I've looked on the net for plans, but all I've come up with are barns. I'd love any suggestions. Also, I plan on leaving the entire area where the stalls and centre aisle are going not cemented. I wondered if I could put 4 inches or so of gravel on top of the existing dirt floor and then put rubber stall mats on top of that(or do I have to dig more dirt out)? Do most people cement the rest of the barn for ease of cleaning or what else could I do? I've read the books, but I want to know what "real" people do. Oh, and its an old driveshed, thats why I'm starting with just a frame!
