Horse Building in Parker, Colorado

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., fabricated this pre-engineered metal farm building for a customer in Parker, Colorado, in March of 2019.

Versatile and built to last, the steel barn is ideal for housing horses or livestock and features a combination of indoor and covered outdoor space for animals. The covered outdoor space opens into outdoor pens, allowing animals to roam or seek shade as conditions warrant, and the inside of the building has plenty of room for storing feed, equipment or the animals themselves in inclement weather.

The outside of the metal farm building has a traditional barn-style look, featuring Light Stone paint, 6” of Polar White accent trim and a cross buck design on its doors.
