Quercus have kept alive the designs originally developed by the Timber Research and Development Association for timber agricultural buildings. These can be DIY to a Quercus design or designed and built by Quercus. At the equestrian centre in Cousland we have constructed a canadian barn which is a term used to describe horse looseboxes ranged either side of a central aisle under one roof. There are 11 of these boxes together with a tackroom, feed store, kitchen and toilet.

The use of profiled fibre cement is preferred for roofing as it does not have the condensation issues of steel and is visually attractive. Down the centre is a barrel roof light with a ventilated upstand. This gives a pleasant environment both for the stable hands and the horses.
