Raise your barn from the ground up, connect your vertical frames and personalize it with staircases, doors, flooring, and walls. Along the way, learn about roof designs, house framing and architectural styles, trusses, and barn raising. We will also build multiple bridges out of popsicle/craft sticks, using different engineering concepts and designs. See how much weight they can bear! Exercise your eye for design and become more elaborate. Build your own covered bridge with support beams, trusses, and barn-like roofs. These famous bridges made the cows feel comfortable when crossing noisy rivers. Bring out your inner architect and engineer!
