Barns and Outbuildings

And How to Construct Them


About The Book

First published in 1881, this classic volume presents dozens of practical examples of barns and outbuildings—including floor plans and building instructions—and contains two hundred and fifty-seven engravings, woodcuts, and line drawings illustrating historical and practical designs. Featured designs include cattle barns, pigpens, pigeon houses, self-feeding corncribs, self-closing doors, icehouses, springhouses, granaries, horse barns, dog houses, and much more. Halsted also provides suggestions on the placement of outbuildings and on choosing the cor-rect materials for foundations, walls, and roofs.

This new release of Barns and Outbuildings—a tribute to the beauty of the farm and the ingenuity of the farmer—will engage new audiences, from builders and organic gardeners to history buffs and craft lovers.
