    Default North/South or East West?? which way is best?

    For my new tarp shed?

    Seems like the new shared facility, farm parking and riding arena is going to become a reality, so should it be erected North/South or East/West.

    The space that the men are choosing would mean north/south, so I need to know if there are any pro's con's to that alignment, and do I need to argue for a different place, and direction.
    I'm not sure if I grew out of stupid or ran out of brave.

    Default I'm not clear which building you are talking about

    Is it the barn, the arena or a storage building?


    If it is barn or arena, North/South will get you a breeze through, most of the year.

    If it is just a storage building, put it where it is most convenient for access purposes.

    A run in shed should face east.

    Default

    For me it will be an arena, but I will have to share use of it with the farm, so sometimes I will have a large area sometimes not.
