Frank Windler, Windler Building Solutions — Wick Buildings — First Place
Built for Doug and Judy Vogt, this horse-stall barn is located on eight acres that border Castlewood State Park in Balluin, Mo., and represents the culmination of a two-year dream for its owners. The Vogts found the land and returned two years later when the “for sale” sign was erected. They built their retirement home and the barn for their horses they have always wanted. The building floor plan revolves around the 12- x12-foot grid created by the posts, and the structure’s cedar siding and shingles create a warm and inviting look.

This five-stall horse barn with tack room and wash stall was designed to look like a 19th century structure. The post-frame design of this barn closely duplicates the original Dutch barns of the area.
Fuog Interbuild Inc. — Third Place
The Paddock Storage Building Arena features jump storage, a playroom, and a work room for farm manager. Post-frame construction was used in place of standard foundation types to save money and was beneficial for strength in a high-wind area. All doors were custom-made to mimic Corton doors.
