Product Information

When this book was published in the 1880s, more than half the population of North America lived on farms - making good barns and outbuildings was a necessity in that era.

The book presents numerous practical examples of barns and outbuildings, both large and small, ranging from cattle and sheep barns/shelters to poultry houses and dog Kennels, completed with floor plans, building instructions and over 250 illustrations.

For more than a century, this book remains one of the best on the subject!
