Although this book was quite informative it was not what I was looking for as it is lacking the tecnological side of building barns, sheds etc. It is written with reference to a previous time period--I did not find this book very useful for today's building and planning of such structures.

This is a direct reprint of an 1881 classic, with an informative new forward by Castle Freeman. Halstead selected some of the most popular published designs from over two decades of the farm journal, The American Agriculturist. Designs include barns, stables, carriage houses, animal shelters, corn cribs, ice houses, spring houses, dog houses and bird houses. This book is still an inspiration for country builders.

I loved this book. I got many ideas on what type of barn I wanted and it also gave a lot of history on each barn.

This is an excellent book for anyone who is interested in building, farming or stock raising of any kind, be it back yard or acreage. It is old-fashioned but the principles used are timeless and useful today.

Really awesome book. Really enjoy the pictures of the buildings. Great ideas if you are lacking. Out dated on the price to build such things, but kind of neat to see what it would have cost back in the day.
