This classic three sided Run-In shelter comes with specialized features that make it a comfortable place for all your animals to relax. A kickplate conserves the siding, steel corner brackets and a pressure treated sill plate allow this building to be easily pulled around a pasture, and battens provide extra protection from the elements.
Run-In Standard Features
All About The Run-In Standard
The Standard Run-In will strike a classic silhouette in your pasture. Imagine this rustic and attractive shed standing in your field, your animals happily relaxing in its shade. Just as practical as it is picturesque, the details on this Run-In make it a cut above the others. We’ve reinforced this shelter with corner brackets and pressure treated sill plates, allowing you to drag it into different parts of your pasture as you rotate your fields.
When placing your Run-In on your property, we recommend a higher-elevation location with good drainage to keep the interior dry and comfortable for your horses, cows, pigs, sheep or goats. Situate it as a windbreak and away from large trees for maximum coziness and safety. A sturdy shelter is an investment in the happiness of your animals. But there are other ways to maximize the utility you get from your Run-In. Make sure that it is easily accessible by vehicle so that veterinarians and farriers can have an easy time reaching your animals. Make the interior of the shelter easy to clean by adding a rubber pad and covering it with hay and bedding. You’ll feel a sense of contentment watching your barnyard buddies rest and relax, kept dry and warm by this Run-In.
Choose Your Size & Type
Whether you have just one animal or a handful of critters, we have many size options to fit your needs: 16 of them, to be exact. All of our Run-Ins that are 18’ or 20’ wide have two rough openings, while the smaller models have a single opening. Your choice will depend on how many animals you have, and what your final desired aesthetic will be. Choose Your Format We offer the Standard Run-In as a complete shell kit with do-it-yourself instructions. If you’d prefer we do the building, we also offer it fully assembled to our customers who live within 300 miles of our factory in Londonderry, Vermont.
The Complete Shell – With this package you get everything needed to set up an uninsulated building. Wall and roof framing, siding, and a metal roof come with this package.
Each of our buildings comes with default options that match our specifications. However, if you want to personalize your purchase, we have made that process a breeze. As you go through each step, you’ll be able to pick and choose which options you want. A variety of options exist to fashion your Run-In just the way you’d like. We offer many all-natural pine and cedar siding options. Roofing choices include corrugated metal, Western Red Cedar shingles or shakes, and architectural asphalt shingles, which are available in many colors. Or bring in extra sunshine with a Clear Poly roof.
• Strengthen – Some options are intended to boost the ruggedness of your already robust building. For example, you can increase the weight rating of your floor and roof. Treated floor systems are also ideal for geographical locations that are prone to damp ground. Western Red Cedar siding naturally repels many insects too.
• Personalize – If you want to style your building so that it blends in with your natural landscape, or match existing buildings on your property, we have a plethora of siding and roofing options. We think White Cedar Shingle Siding siding paired with a corrugated metal roof in Copper Penny would be fashionable choices to add.
