Rate this:
First published in 1881, this beautiful volume presents dozens of practical examples of barns and outbuildings, both large and small - complete with illustrations, floor plans, and building instructions. Here are a wealth of designs, including a western cattle barn with covered cattle stalls and feeding apparatus; a portable pigpen with self-closing doors; a corn house and self-feeding corn crib; ice houses; springhouses; granaries; dog houses; pigeon houses; and more. Close attention is paid to choosing the correct foundation and materials for a particular structure. The reader is also taught to take into account the overall aesthetic of the farm when planning the location of one building in relation to another as well as in relation to the surrounding landscape.
