For our granddaughters birthday we bought her a horse to go with her dolls. I decided to build her a stable using only material on hand; scrap wood and plywood, left over flooring and beadboard and plastic hinges. It measures 12” x 24” x 18” high closed and 24” x 24” when opened. It was a fun quick project that I enjoyed making. I put it in a blank box that she opened after the horse. It was a great hit.

Nice design and execution. Should prove to be a much used toy.

My wife has been on me since Christmas to build my daughter one of these. If you don’t mind, I think I will borrow your design as it is exactly like my wife described with the little pen created by the doors and the fence!
great job gramps!

Thanks for all the comments.
scorbent and Tim – She was very happy to get it and plays with it often.
ScottKaye – please feel fee to copy the design. I styled it after one that is sold in Target. I didn’t make plans or I would share them with you.

being as I was a horse crazy girl at one point, I can say I’d have loved this one, too. I had over 125 horse statues; no stable. Now my statues are a bit more expensive and sit behind glass. I think I’d love to have some in hanging “stables ” on my walls designed like this. Great job ! Thanks for the inspiration.
