With stables, wash bay & tack/feed rooms all under one roof, an American Barn is the modern alternative to traditional stables.
An American barn is open and airy in the summer, enclosed and cosy in the winter; little wonder they're so popular.
Fitted out with a range of internal stables and the option of exterior doors to individual turn out, wash bays, feed rooms, tack rooms, our American Barns are a complete, integrated equestrian facility under one roof.
Why Choose an Olson American Barn?
We are horse owners ourselves and our team has decades of experience designing and building equestrian buildings and American Barns.
Constructed from the same sustainably sourced, pressure treated timber that we use in our range of timber buildings, our American Barns are built to last and to stand up to the daily rigours of equestrian life.
In fact, we are so confident that we guarantee all our timber buildings for 5 years.
Simply Designed For You
One size does not fit all; we work with you to design your ideal American Barn, incorporating all the features you need to create the perfect space for you and your equine friends.
We build to order, so your barn design is entirely bespoke, whilst our large stock of pre-cut timbers and materials mean that our construction lead time is quick.
We have lots of useful planning advice for building American Barns and can help to guide you through a planning application.

Built to Last
Our American Barns are feature-packed as standard, although 'standard' is not a word we would use to describe our timber buildings.
Designed to ensure maximum ventilation to stay cool during the summer months and warm in the winter, our American Barns feature a large centre walkway providing ample space for ease of movement between stalls or to manoeuvre and turn horses without issue.
