Timber Frame Barn Kits Virginia

A barn is an agricultural construction usually on farms and used for a variety of purposes. From the North American area, a barn describes structures which house livestock, such as horses and cows, as well as gear and fodder, and frequently grain. As a result, the term barn is frequently qualified e.g. tobacco barn, dairy barn, sheep barn, potato barn. From the British Isles, the term barn is restricted mainly to storage arrangements for unthreshed cereals and fodder, the conditions byre or shippon being applied to cow shelters, whereas horses are stored in buildings known as stables. On the Continent, however, barns were frequently part of integrated structures known as byre-dwellings (or housebarns in US literature). Additionally, barns might be used for gear storage, as a covered workplace, also for activities like threshing.
