Lester built my indoor riding arena in 1993. I chose them both for the price and for their design ideas. I am very satisfied and their product has held up over the years. I would be happy to go to them again if I was building another structure. I would suggest you let them put gutters onto the building. We added those ourselves and it was not easy to do that. You do really need gutters on a building as big as an arena. I also wish we had chosen double rows of kick boards (where sidewall meets ground
I should add that I live in western Wisconsin and the company
originated in Lester Prairie, Minnesota, not very far from where I am. Our materials and the crew leader came from the home office. The only problem with construction is that 1993 was the year the Mississippi flooded so badly from the large amount of rain we had. We had double crews working at our site twice because they could not get into other places to work on those projects.
as we get some erosion which leaves a gap under the wall.
Our building is on a hilltop and there was fairly extensive earthmoving involved to prepare the site for building.

Reason: Added more information
I had an indoor arena built in 2004 and it has been fine. I wish I could have insulated it but couldn't afford that. I had the roof extended along one long wall to be a shelter for a pasture. I got a discount for building in the fall.
