Horse Shelter Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about 10×14 horse shelter plans. The project features instructions for building a medium sized run-in shed. If you want to build a basic shelter for your horses, take a look over this project, as well as over Part 2. Make sure you check out the rest of plans to see alternatives and more projects for your garden.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building a 10×14 run in horse shed

Building the side walls

Building the side walls

The first step of the project is to build the side walls for the horse shelter. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the edges are flush and check if the corners are square.

Building the back wall

Building the back wall

Assemble the back wall of the run in shed, using the information from the diagrams and following the instructions from above.

Fitting the side walls

Fitting the side walls

Use 4×4 lumber for the skids and lay them on a level surface. Fit the walls to the skids and lock them into place using 2×4 braces. Use a spirit level to check if the walls are plumb.

Assembling the frame of the shelter

Assembling the frame of the shelter

Attach the back wall to the skids, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the end studs and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the side walls. Make sure the corners are square and align all the edges with attention.

Building the top side walls

Building the top side walls

Build the lean to side walls from 2×4 lumber. Cut the top of the studs at 72.8 degrees and make angle cuts to the top plate, as seen in the plans. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the studs.

Fitting the top side walls

Fitting the top side walls

Attach the lean to walls to the top plates of the side walls and align them with attention. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the base walls.

Fitting the top beam

Fitting the top beam

Fit the 2×10 beam to the front of the shelter, as shown in the diagram. Use 3″ lag screws to lock the beam to the framing, after making sure it is perfectly horizontal.

Front trims

Front trims

Fit 2×6 beams to the sides of the shelter, to enhance the look of the project. Use 2 1/2″ screws to lock the beams to the side walls. Make sure there are no gaps between components.

Fitting the siding to the back

Fitting the siding to the back

Attach T1-11 siding to the back of the shelter. Make sure the sheets are flush with the top edge of the top plate. Use 1 5/8″ galvanized nails to lock the sheets into place.
