  • Barns
  •  
  • According to Wikipedia, A barn is an
    agricultural building usually located on farms
    and used for various purposes. In the North
    American area, a barn refers to structures that
    house livestock, including cattle and horses, as
    well as equipment and fodder, and often grain.
    There are several types of barns. Pole barns
    (post frame), post beam barns, modular barns,
    steel building barns, gable barns, gambrel barns,
    shedrow barns, run-in barns, lean to barns,
    storage barns, chicken barns, pavilion barns,
    bank barns and monitor barns. We could write an
    article all about barns in itself, but we need to
    stick to animal shelters. Its important to know
    the types of barns there are as there are not
    that many lists out there to choose from on the
    internet. If youre interested in a barn, just
    google one of the barns we listed and do more
    research on it.

  • Gables
  •  
  • A gable is a part of a wall that encloses the end
    of a pitched roof. Its a roof shape style that
    is generally triangular - points. These types of
    animal shelters are perfect for places that pack
    a lot of snow because the design helps the snow
    fall off the roof easier so there is less stress
    on the frame.
