Also, barns may be used for equipment storage, as a covered workplace, and for activities such as threshing. The word barn is also used to describe buildings used for uses such as a tobacco barn or dairy barn. Byre is a word for one type of barn meant for keeping cattle. In the United States, older barns were built from timbers hewn from trees on the farm and built a log crib barn or timber frame, although stone barns were sometimes built in areas where stone was a cheaper material for building.
