Farm Building: Weighing House and Store, 1837.


One of many house plans from the eBook

Designs for Farm Buildings.

 

The Plate, No. 51 [shown below, plan], the Geometrical Elevation, No. 52 [shown in book], and the Perspective View, No. 53 [shown, above], explain the Design for a Weighing House and Store. Ancient buildings, erected for this purpose, were very picturesque; the great projecting roofs, the Crane and Stage for landing the goods, all necessarily creating features of much interest. The Swiss character, with the outside stair, is particularly applicable to this purpose.
