Barns and Outbuildings

Byron D. Halsted

First published in 1881, this volume presents dozens of examples of barns
and outbuildings complete with illustrations, floor plans, and building instructions.
The designs include 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; icehouses; springhouses; granaries; doghouses; and pigeon
houses. The reader is instructed in choosing the correct foundation and materials for a particular structure, as well as considering the overall aesthetics of the farm in building placement.
