Timber Frame Barn Kits Virginia

A barn is an agricultural building usually on farms and used for a variety of functions. In the North American area, a barn describes structures which house livestock, such as horses and cows, in addition to equipment and fodder and often grain. Because of this, the term barn is often qualified e.g. tobacco barn, dairy barn, sheep barn, potato barn. In the British Isles, the term duplex is confined mainly to storage structures for unthreshed cereals and fodder, the terms byre or shippon being employed to cow shelters, whereas horses are kept in structures called stables. On the Continent, however, barns were often a part of integrated structures called byre-dwellings (or house barns in US literature). Additionally, barns may be used for equipment storage, as a coated office, also for activities such as threshing.
