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.
