With a long-rooted history, bank barns can be found in the United States, eastern Canada and European countries. They are usually built into the side of a hill, so that the upper and lower portions can be accessed at ground level. The upper area is commonly used to store hay, while the lower portion houses animals. Nowadays, you can still find these beautiful barns dotted throughout the countryside!

Many bank barns are inherited when people purchase older farms. Most are in need of renovation, but the results can be amazing! Furthermore, a few companies still build them. If you’re considering the idea of using one as a horse stable, then you’ll love this inspiration. These barns are breathtaking!

This barn has a very modern look to it. With a steel roof, board and batten sides and stonework, it’s the perfect example of solid craftsmanship!
