    Stacey, How exciting!!! I have drawn my own plans but it would take up about an 18' x 20' spot. I am not sure how much space you have.

    I dont know how big he wants to make it. It will POSSIBLY include the chickens one side and the goats on the other (not sharing a space but the barn).

    it might not happen till spring - BUT he is very serious about it since this is the second time he mentioned it.

    See we have been improving our house (made it twice its size) and now the family has been working on the yard.

    The chicken coop is in diar need of being replaced and the goat shed could use some repairs. SO instead of having two shacks he is entertaining the idea I suggested which was a barn. This way it wouldn't be an eye sore. A barn if done right will actually improve the look of the property.

    here are the plans of my new barn. The left side is 20' and the right side is 20'. The top and bottom of the pic are 18'. So the barn is 18' wide and 20' long. Can't find my original plans but that would be an idea. Let me know if you need a better pic.

    We went with the classic red barn style. I sure love it, it has an aisle down the middle, with stalls on each side. A concreted milking area and feed room. It also has a loft for hay storage.

    Well Stacey...since I found your thread...I will get some pics here tomorrow...mine went from a 10x16 to a 16x18...so providing it's not raining I'll get some pics up for ya. There had been a 10x10 with 3 stalls on the back wall and a 6x10 common area that included my grain storage and milk stand. A 6x10 area divided to let Hank have a 4x6 area to himself and a 6x6 area to store hay. The addition of a 8x16 area lets the girls have a 8 x 12 area and Hank will have the new 4x8 and Chief will have Hanks previous area..divided by a stall door as Hank is rough with him yet. The "old"10x10 still has 3 stalls with one being used for grain and an extra bale of hay the other 2 for kidding stalls. Plenty room for everyone to be happy. Hopefully the area you are planning to build on is level....I had to have someone dig out for the addition because I live on a hillside. As far as cost goes with the original plus the addition materials will run @ $2500.00 Give or take a few bucks. We also covered the roof in tin so that was an extra $250.00 We are hoping to side it in rough cut hemlock next year if the finances go right...this way we won't need to paint every couple years..it will just age naturally.

    here is another. the barn was 24x30 & i had it set up so every thing could be done from the out side of the stall so when i went to a show who ever was taking care of them didn't have to go in the pen & a chance of them getting out.
