Louisiana State University has put together an excellent website packed with countless building plans available for free PDF download. If you are the do-it-yourself type, this is a site that you should definitely bookmark!
Just to give you a very small sampling of the plans and projects that are included:
- Dairy parlors.
- Rearview mirrors for tractors.
- Walk-in refrigerators.
- Roadside fruit stands.
- Chicken coops.
The PDFs are simply diagrams—they do not contain step-by-step directions. However, dimensions are provided. With a little bit of building know-how, you should be able to get started without too much trouble.
While some of the plans are a little overkill for most country families (need an auction barn?), many of them will provide useful ideas for your construction projects, whether large or small. Highly recommended site!
