Custom Designed Settler Stables

Written by Outpost Buildings on October 29th, 2019.      0 comments

Outpost custom designed these stables for a customer to suit their site and requirements.

This stable design is based on our Settler stable which is a modular design. Settler Stables have a centre pitch roof that look great and is very strong.  The stables have 2 generous sized stalls with barn style wooden windows for extra ventilation and barn style front stall doors. There is a tack shed at the far end which is handy for storing feed and tack equipment.



Product Feature: Homestead stalls with centre tackshed

Two horse stalls with handy tack shed in the middle!

The range of Homestead style stables and paddock shelters from Outpost come in a wide range of sizes and options. The one featured here has been very popular with its tack shed in the middle between two good sized stalls.

Relocatable Design

Impressively this design is relocatable if you want it to be. The base of the building sits on heavy duty bearers or “skids” as we call them and the corrugated zincalume cladding is run horizontally to give the building more strength. So once assembled the building can be lifted by hiab truck to be transported to a new property if you ever need to. If you don’t want it to be relocatable then many of our customers opt to bolt the skids to a concrete pad or put the flooring in once the building is in place. The skids are H3 ground treated so it’s fine for them to be in or on the ground and they won’t rot for over 50 years.

Hunter Custom Stable Design Showcase

Written by Outpost Buildings on November 21st, 2017.      0 comments

Outpost custom designed this “Hunter” style stable for a customer.

Hunter style stables from Outpost Buildings have a mono pitch roof line that is higher at the front for easy access. This makes it easier to get horses in & out of. The Hunter design is modular so can be extended to suit your needs by adding more stalls, tack rooms or covered areas.

The stable featured here has two generous sized stalls with plywood windows for extra ventilation. The solid timber stall doors are easy to use and there is an optional upgrade available to extra strong galvanised steel framed doors.
The covered area in between the two stalls is great for grooming or feeding. At the back of the covered area there is a tack room for storing feed and tack equipment.

There are clear panels in the side cladding and roof for interior lighting. The stable is designed to be built on a concrete foundation and the customer can add bedding of their choice such as stable rubber mats or sawdust.

Tips for building a horse stable

Written by Outpost Buildings on February 10th, 2017.      0 comments

Having a stable building for your horses is great and you can include a wide range of spaces designed for uses such as overnight stabling, storing all your gear & feed, wash down areas, float parking or storage, foaling stalls and grooming.

What space do you want?
Consider the size of your stable; how many horses do you intend to stable? How big do you want the stalls to be for each horse. Outpost Stall sizes can be customised to suit your requirements. The most popular stall sizes are 3.5m x 3.5m or 3.5m x 4.2m. These sizes allow plenty of space for your horses to move around and also for you to safely move around in the stall with your horse.
How much storage do you need?
Will you want to store hay and other feed in your stable? It’s a great idea to have a lockable tack room to store all your expensive equipment. Keeping it in your stable building will be handy for when you want to use it as well.
