Private Estate

General Contracting, Residential


When a client wanted to build their dream equestrian estate, they engaged Duggan Contracting.

This project entailed constructing a 2,500 sq. ft home with a detached garage, three service buildings, a 9,950 sq. ft stable with a living space, a 35,000 sq. ft indoor riding arena and observation viewing area, 9 paddocks, an outdoor timber viewing structure, 2 miles of fence on the 60 acre property, and remodeling an existing 2,400 sq. ft home. In addition to construction of the buildings, the demands of landscaping for such a facility required special attention to detail. The property now features a small lake, 2 ponds, a custom stone bridge, and weeping waterfall.

In additional to being the general contractor, Duggan partnered with Fixture Concepts to fabricate, finish and install all of the custom millwork and casework. The use of cedar is a key component throughout the estate. There are 296,000 linear feet (56 miles) of tongue and groove siding installed on the interior and exterior of the buildings. The arena’s ceiling is covered with 93,000 linear feet (17+ miles) of cedar planks. As the general contractor we performed the entire carpentry scope of work for this project amounting to over 45,000 man hours by Duggan alone.

To complete this project, the Duggan team had to be well versed in the highly specialized world of equestrian facilities. Working closely with architect and over 80 subcontractors was necessary to make sure that every detail met the needs of our client, fulfilling their dream.
