A barn is a agricultural building usually on farms and used for various functions. In the North American area, a barn refers to structures that house livestock, including horses and cows, in addition to equipment and fodder, and often grain. Because of this, the expression barn is often qualified e.g. tobacco barn, dairy barn, sheep barn, potato barn. In the British Isles, the expression duplex is confined mainly to storage arrangements for unthreshed cereals and fodder, the terms byre or shippon being applied to cow shelters, whereas horses have been stored in buildings known as stables. On the Continent, however, barns were often part of integrated structures known as byre-dwellings (or housebarns in US literature). Additionally, barns might be used for equipment storage, as a covered workplace, and for activities such as threshing.
