Typically a barn is an agricultural building that is primarily located on farms and used for many purposes, most often for the storage of crops and housing of livestock. Barns may also be used for equipment storage, as a covered workplace area, and for farm activities such as threshing. The word barn can also be used to describe buildings that are used for things such as tobacco barns or dairy barns. Byre is a word that is used for one type of barn that is meant for keeping cattle. In the United States, older barns were often built from timbers that were hewn from trees on the farm and built as a log crib barn or a timber frame, although stone barns were also built in areas where stone was a cheaper material for building. In the mid to late 19th-century barn framing methods in the United States began to shift away from the traditional method of timber framing to plank framed or truss framed buildings. Truss or plank framed barns reduced the number of timbers used instead using dimensional lumber for the joists, rafters, and sometimes the trusses.
