This style of grainery was not made commercially but was built by each farmer as needed. A farmer would look at an existing
grainery and then go home and build one. The construction method is to build a platform and then framed walls upon which a
roof can be built. At first the framed walls were made of poles and later of sized lumber as it became available. The unique
characteristic of this grainery construction is that no siding was added to the exterior of the walls. The studs were left
open, as in the picture above.
There is a story about William Morgan, his wife Lovina, and graineries. It seems William built a new grainery and one day
when he came home Lovina had moved into it because it was better than the dugout they were living in.
