Timber Stables

Back to Timber Outbuildings

Give your horse a happy home! Shields Buildings timber stables are built to last, incorporating many high quality design features as standard. Our focus is on a robust construction with attention to detail, using only the best quality timber, roofing and fixings for your stables.

The pressure treated cladding repels the elements while the heavy-duty galvanised door furniture ensures that your horses are securely contained in their loose box. A generous 900mm canopy on the front of the building is included which helps to keep the weather off both you and your horses in rough weather.

Designed for you

As we offer a bespoke design service, any combination of units is possible, you can choose a layout that suits your requirements - a straight row, L-shape or U-shape. You may like to add a tack room and a hay or feed store to make up the complete building, giving you everything you need.

We will make sure that there is adequate ventilation for your horses with purpose made ventilators and generous Perspex sliding windows in your stables.

The base is an important part of your building. Generally, a concrete base will be required with one row of engineering bricks to take the wall panels. We will supply you with a base plan to make sure everything goes smoothly.

The timber

All the external  timber we use is northern European redwood, from sustainable and well managed sources. It is pressure treated, for two reasons - to protect against attack from wood boring beetles or termites and against fungal decay. The colour fades over time, but the chemicals carry on working to keep your building as good as new. Your bespoke timber stables will be given extra protection against the weather with two coats of water proofer.

Roof  options

Roofing options, typically stables will have an apex roof with long lasting plastisol steel sheeting in a range of colours.

Do you need Planning Permission?

Stables will often need planning permission. As this can often be a bit daunting we offer a Planning Application service to help you. Let our experienced team prepare and submit the application for you along with the detailed drawings and plans required.
