Thanks for the info. I will be converting the entrance and probably 40 feet x 20 inside to work on, more if the wallet allows. The rest will be gravel or compacted road base for cleanliness. Lately I have been leaning toward 36-40 feet wide with wood trusses on a pole barn, sheeting then steel roof and siding to match my house. Probably a 10 foot lean to on both sides for more storage and to give the barn look so that it all blends. I grew up in the snow and am familiar with working with it.

The guy I use to work for built an indoor riding arena that was 80 x120. Forget what it cost, but we use to ride indoors all winter long.

I hope your budget allows for what you want. I also hope that everything goes smoothly for you. I'd love to see pictures of the progress.
