With their classic barns and fences, American small farms, and the buildings that support these farms, serve a much-needed purpose as much today as in the past. Even with the new technology frequently used on farms, these buildings have changed relatively little and are still used to house the animals that so many small farm owners work with and the feed, supplies, and equipment needed to maintain those animals. Every well-meaning farmer or property owner with livestock, small animals, or farming equipment has need of a barn or a series of outbuildings. Unfortunately, many farmers now rely on expensive contractors and construction companies to do a job many traditional farmers undertook themselves. Knowing how to build these structures is not only a lost American art form, it is also a skill that can save you thousands.
This book has been designed to ensure that everyone who has ever thought of building their own barns, outbuildings, or animal pens knows exactly what is entailed from inception of the design to the final construction stages. You will learn exactly what you need to start building outbuildings and barns. You will learn how each animal should be cared for, what space they need in a barn, and what other outbuildings might be necessary for their comfort. For each of the structures described within this book, you will learn the required dimensions, necessities to efficiently use your new building, and extra space you might not have previously considered, including space for your motorized machinery, a workshop for maintaining your equipment, and loft space for hay bales, feed, and farming equipment.
Regardless of what you need for your small farm or property, you will have a complete list of detailed building design plans. The companion CD-ROM contains design plans in PDF format for a variety of structures. Each design plan offers detailed instructions, supply lists, and diagrams.
This book offers plans for building barns, storage structures, animal pens, storage sheds, and greenhouses, as well as icehouses, water tanks, cisterns, smokehouses, and root cellars. This book even offers plans for building gates, fences, wagons, farm equipment, irrigation systems, potting benches, beehives and frames, food dehydrators, and other structures and equipment necessary for the success of your small farm. If you are looking to save thousands of dollars by building your own farm structures and equipment, this book will walk you through every step of the design, preparation, and constructions process, ensuring success and capturing the lost art of small farm self-sufficiency.
