Types of structural buildings
Agricultural buildings Barn
A barn is an agricultural building primarily located on farms and used for many purposes, notably for the housing of livestock and storage of crops.
Farmhouse is a general term for the main house of a farm. It is a type of building or house which serves a residential purpose in a rural or agricultural setting. Historically common were farmhouses which were combined with space for animals called a house barn. Other farm houses may be connected to one or more barns, built to form a courtyard, or each farm building was built separately.
A storm shelter or storm cellar is a type of underground bunker designed to protect the occupants from violent severe weather, particularly tornadoes.
A shed is typically a simple, single-storey structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop.
A silo is a structure for storing bulk materials. Silos are used in agriculture to store grain (see grain elevators) or fermented feed known as silage. Silos are more commonly used for bulk storage of grain, coal, cement, carbon black, woodchips, food products and sawdust. Three types of silos are in widespread use today; tower silos, bunker silos, and bag silos.
