This delightful text encompasses a collection of designs of various barns and out-buildings, such as apiaries, stables, play-houses... and more. The designs contained herein are presented as architectural drawings and floor plans, and are accompanied by detailed descriptions and information on their construction, materials, benefits, and draw-backs. Written in plain, clear language and profusely illustrated, this book will be of much interest to anyone looking to construct their own out-buildings, and it constitutes a worthy addition to collections of antiquarian farming literature.

Allen's Barn', 'Mr. Meckwith's Octagon Barn', 'A Circular Barn', 'A Side-Hill Barn', 'Stables', 'An Octagon Poultry House', 'An Octagon Piggery', 'An Ashery and Smoke-House', 'An Ice-House', 'An Apiary', 'A Play-House', etcetera.
