Next to log structures, a "pole barn" type building can be one of the easiest of outbuildings to construct, and will serve quite well for a number of uses on the small farm or homestead: tool storage, a place for farm repairs . . . and most certainly shelter for livestock.
You’ll find these topics covered in “Building an Old-fashioned Pole Barn”:
• Acquiring pole barn construction materials (from your own homestead)
• Milling your own homemade lumber with a chainsaw and attachments
