Byron D. Halsted

First published in 1881, this classic volume presents dozens of practical examples of barns and outbuildings--including floor plans and building instructions--and contains two hundred and fifty-seven engravings, woodcuts, and line drawings illustrating historical and practical designs. 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.
This new release of Barns and Outbuildings--a tribute to the beauty of the farm and the ingenuity of the farmer--will engage new audiences, from builders and organic gardeners to history buffs and craft lovers.
