Resources, LLC, is a receiving facility for an equestrian complex that provides 14 stalls for incoming horses and separation from the main barn. The builder’s post-frame construction also met the need for a high wind load area (130 mph).

• Randy Wiig of Morton Buildings, Inc., Lexington, N.C.
Francis Horse Barn, built for William W. Francis, is used as a special horse stall barn with an office. Post-frame was the builder’s choice because of the speed and ease of construction; it was also easily adapted to horse barn use. The raised center accommodates a 16-x-144-foot hayloft.
• Jerry Eklund of C & R Construction-Wick Buildings, Frewsburg, N.Y.Lisa Williams of Point Break Stables. The owner is a breeder/trainer and needed a place to run the business and be sure that his horses, as well as those brought to him for training, are safe. The main structure was started in 2005, but the interior was not completed until last summer. The builder and owner did not consider any other construction type. Post-frame allowed them to mix uses of the building to suit the owner’s needs, from the office to shop to horse boarding, and still be economical, functional and safe.
