This book by Gregory D. Huber is beautiful. I actually said “wow!” when I pulled it out of the packaging. Full of color pictures that perfectly illustrate the text. Full of information that you can skim through or really study. I’ll confess that I looked at the pictures and read mostly the captions – unless there was a barn that I wanted to learn more about. You can spend time reading about dimensions and studying some basic blue print drawings to learn even more.
One of the reasons I chose this book is because I lived in the area that these barns are in. I’ve seen many barns like this in real life, but never paid much attention to window, roof, or door style. It was interesting to read about their history.
