Barns are a type of build that has been around for hundreds of years. Throughout American history, farmers built barn designs to help shelter their livestock and store their harvest. There are a variety of barn styles that can be found throughout the United States; each barn build suited to the environment where the barn resides. The barn design, especially if it is a very old barn design, is bound with the weather requirements of that particular location nd the cultural traditions of the farmers who lived in the region. One example of this is a steeply peaked roof, which is relevant to the regions that have considerable snowfall since the weight of the snow can bring the roof of a barn down. Such steep roof peaks only capture the heat in the hotter, more humid regions of the South. So while that particular style of barn building will still have a slope to help shed the rain and snow, the more southerly barns buildings add variation to help with the ventilation. An example of this is the airy monitor barns that help to ensure a breeze from the floor through to the ceiling through the monitor barns vents.
