Barnyard

Barnyard
Piles of åg in the barnyard, with the partially completed roof in the background. The side buildings on the right have a traditional plank roof, which consists of overlapping planks periodically painted over with pine tar.

An åg roof would usually only be used on shelters for lower-value items, such as livestock -- high-value items such as farm equipment would be stored in buildings with the more weather-tight plank roofs.
