About

This elegant solid timber structure houses 2 large stables with goregous sliding shutters to allow plenty of natural light into the building, or provide protection from inclement weather.  The tack room has an attractive timber double hung sash window and shutter for security.

There is also a toilet, 2 x cross ties and a wash down area with a large under cover veranda. Complete with hot and cold running water and fully lined on all internal walls, this is an extremely comfortable and stylish stable building.

Designed and built by Harrison Lane in Auckland in March 2014, this 2 bay stable and tack room is clad in traditional ply and batten with a timeless galvanised corrugate roof.

The top two pictures on this page were added in January 2016, as you can see this stable looks just as good a few years on!

“When we decided to build a stable we went straight to Harrison Lane. We knew there were other companies out there who may design a good looking building, but we needed to be secure in the knowledge that our stables were going to have the horses requirements as paramount. We realized prior to building that there are a lot of equestrian buildings out there but not all of them are designed in an efficient or particularly horse friendly manner. There are many details pertaining to horses that other builders may not be aware of.

From the outset, Laura was amazingly efficient. She constantly reverted to us with emails advising of costings, variables and great advice. I had a fairly good idea of what I wanted the building to look like but wasn’t sure of the ideal dimensions each area needed to be. Laura tirelessly measured things out for me and went to a lot of effort in making sure that I saw other barns with some of the dimensions that I was looking at incorporating in ours.

The choices in products were brought in as samples and the variables in price were given as options as the project developed. There were no surprises cost wise and everything was built with quality in mind but I was still able to adhere to my tight budget.

The stables are an absolute credit to Harrison Lane and I have had builders on site (from other projects) comment that the stables are “a work of art”! We couldn’t be more thrilled with the finished building. Our ponies are relaxed and happy in their spacious surroundings and we are delighted with the ease of efficiency in regards to the layout of the washbays and tack room. The undercover tie up area and the generous boxes have a great feel.

We couldn’t be more thrilled and highly recommend Harrison Lane to anyone wanting to build a barn or stables, from an efficient company who kept our tight budget well on track.”
