Foundation: The 4 horse barn plans are built on 6x6 wood skids so the shed has a open floor and can easily be placed on the ground or a prepared gravel base. The wood skids also allow the shed to be dragged on the field

Window: There are no windows on the plans but windows can be added on any wall.
Siding: 1x10 boards and 1x2 battens.
Roof: The roof is framed using 2x4's to build the rafters. It is sheeted with 1/2" O.S.B. for strength and can have asphalt shingles or metal roofing installed. The plans give you a template and dimensions for the birdsmouth cut angles on the rafters.
Roof Pitch: 4/12, this means that for every 4 inches of rise there is 12 inches of run horizontally.
Roof Overhang: 18" on the front and 6" on the back. 2" on the sides.
