You’ve always dreamed of buying a piece of country acreage and moving your horses’ home. Designing and building a horse property is a big project, one that will require significant time and financial investment. Unless your project is nontechnical, (you are using prefabricated buildings), you’ll need an architect or design professional’s assistance and guidance.
Kevin has expertise in all phases of design, including feasibility studies, site design, barn and building design, permitting, budgeting, and ensuring everything is constructed correctly and per plans. He can also coordinate any required engineering.
He has found that horse owners are really good at seeing the details of how they want things to work and contractors are good at building. However, Kevin has been educated and trained to look at the big picture, anticipate challenges, and problem-solve.
