Stable Style: Small Barns

Small two horse barn in Mexico


Small doesn’t have to mean boring, especially when it comes to stables and barns. I rounded up so of the most adorable barns, some of them having just two stalls! The photo above is a two stall barn located in Mexico, the warm weather allows this barn to have open stall fronts and it’s surrounded by a small paddock for its lucky miniature dwellers.

The only drawback to this barn is it doesn’t appear to have attached storage. But it looks like a nearby garage probably contains grain and tack. More photos and barn details at B&D Builders.

    That white barn, I’m virtually certain, is by Wick. Wick built my barn, and it’s still going strong almost 20 years on.

  2. Thanks for sharing your post.I enjoyed reading it.

    Hey Raquel,

    These are great ideas! Gotta say that the rustic feel is definitely more up my alley. And I love the rustic kitchen at the bottom to go with it. Which book would you recommend first with that kind of style in mind? I’m looking to plan out a bigger rustic-feel barn and house as well.

    Thanks 🙂
