PDH Posted March 6, 2006 Report Share Posted March 6, 2006 Am off work today and was dragged into Honiton by the wife to do some shopping. Managed to get 10 minutes reprieve and nipped into a good second hand bookshop I visit regularly. The owner knowing my interested in farming had kept a book back for me. It's called Build Your Own Farm Buildings, written by Frank Henderson and published by Dairy Farmer Books in 1955. I know its old but the contents are amazing....pictures, drawings and in the middle 32 pages of Farm Buildings plans with dimensions, layouts. These cover everything from cowhouses, milking parlours, yards to pig buildings, sheep dips, grain stores. For two pounds I grabbed it. The owner says the guy who brought in has others and I'm waiting to see what these are like. Yes it's dated but gives some useful info on designing and building a model farm, particularly if you a building a period one. Recommended.
