Agricultural buildings and area often have special grading and excavation requirements and on a much larger scale. All agricultural buildings need a level site and often a concrete foundation. For a lasting build, the ground must be excavated to keep storm water away from the building and typically managed on-site.
Pole barns are a popular agricultural building because of the ease of construction and simplicity of the build. Pole barns do not have a fixed foundation but have poles set in concrete along the perimeter of the building.
Multilevel Horse Barns
Properties with slope can be regraded or you can take advantage of the slope to create a multilevel agricultural building. This is often advantageous because the building can have ground access on more than one level. A bank barn can be used to take advantage of a sloping site and allow multi-level access to the barn easily.
Other Equestrian Structures
In combination with a horse barn, you may desire to have an indoor or outdoor equestrian arena. Both cases require a level site excavation and often a storm water management solution.
