Your timber stable is important for the care of your horse. As horse owners ourselves, we fully appreciate the needs of caring owners. Our stables are designed to the highest standards with your horse’s well-being at heart.
Your stables can be built to any size and combination of straight, L-shaped and U-shaped stable blocks. With the ability to add tack rooms, hay stores, looseboxes, car ports and offices, your stables will be designed to meet your exact requirements.
We will provide you with detailed floor plans to allow your builders to lay the correct concrete base and our expert team will advise on the depth of the concrete and overall recommended dimensions.
To ensure the longevity of your new timber stables and that the build is square, a single course of semi engineering bricks should be laid to the specification provided on the floor plan. By building the stable on this single course of bricks the timber frame of the stable is kept out of any standing water. Should you prefer, instead of a single brick course, we can build the stable on a galvanised steel base.
We understand the best treatments and where to source the best quality timber from. All our timber is pressure treated with Tanalith E BS EN 335-1 and come from FSC approved forests.
One of the best types of roofing for stables is Onduline which is available in brown, green, red or black to suit your requirements. The roofs on the stables we build are lined with OSB. This is especially important as it helps prevent sagging and adds real strength to the structure.
Whatever you’d like on your timber stable roof, as long as it’s structurally sound, we can supply and fit it.
It is advised to have guttering fitted to your stable and we will provide options to suit your needs.
To ensure the well-being of your horse, good ventilation is recommended in your stable. To allow for this we can supply and fit louvered windows, mesh windows, vents and rear top doors.
Doors, Windows and Lighting
When it comes to doors we will help you decide what works best for you. Once the decision is made we will meet your requirements. The fittings will be galvanised and fitted with chew strips on the top of all doors as standard.
To help with natural light in your stable you can have clear roof sheets fitted which will allow sun light in.
