I would like to have someone help me design a layout for pens working area, including birthing stalls, weaning area etc. I would really like to have a master plan for this to work towards.

How many animals do you have? How much space are you working with? There are a lot of factors to consider when building pens and such...

Yes, I agree...

True, I posted in your introduction thread as to how I plan a few of mine...but even the most well laid out plans have Plan B for back up if Plan A doesn't work out.  hahah.

possibly we could. Smiley  But personal preference should be part of it too...how far away from the house do you want a barn?  What style of barn are you wanting?  The way we found the style we wanted was we looked at the Morton barns...they design many styles and shapes, and exteriors...so if you choose what style you want, then we'll know more how to advise setting up the inside of it...if you choose the size that would help too.
