Timber Frame Gambrel Barn Kits

A barn is a agricultural construction usually on farms and used for a variety of purposes. From the North American region, a barn describes structures that house livestock, such as horses and cows, as well as equipment and fodder, and often grain. As a result, the term barn is often qualified e.g. tobacco barn, dairy barn, sheep barn, potato barn. From the British Isles, the term duplex is confined mainly to storage arrangements for unthreshed cereals and fodder, the conditions byre or shippon being employed to cow shelters, whereas horses are kept in structures called stables. On the Continent, however, barns were often part of integrated structures called byre-dwellings (or even house barns in US literature). Additionally, barns might be used for equipment storage, as a coated office, also for activities like threshing.
