Good goat barn plans are able to keep too much moisture out. Respiratory diseases can result when goats inhale too much humidity from the surroundings. Wood is a perfect material because it doesn't accumulate water, unlike metal or concrete. Open building are also good in keeping the moisture out during the cold months and keep maximum airflow during the summer months. Trees are good insulators and keep your animals cool during hot days. An open building with a lot of circulating air also prevents the buildup of ammonia from urine and feces. Bedding is also needed as floor insulation and also acts as litter to prevent wetting of the floor. Bedding materials can be spaced wood boards, sawdust, shavings, paddy husk, hulls, and bagasse. These different types of bedding have different capacities to absorb urine. They are also cheap and readily available. As much as possible no concrete floors must be used. Installing a sleeping platform helps to keep the goats clean and dry. In some countries, goat barn plans include slatted board walls and floors to allow good airflow and also makes cleaning easier. Stilted barns are also good ideas because this offers some protection against parasites that live on the soil. Roofing materials can be anywhere from hay to metal. Hay and straw roofing are good insulators, providing protection during both the summer and winter months. Metals must be paint white to reflect sunlight and prevent heating the barn. For flooring, sawdust or straw will do. Avoid concrete floor for the goat house as much as possible because the urine and feces are not absorbed. Wood is okay but goats like to gnaw and before you knew it, your flooring might be gone. Also, broken wood flooring can easily wound the goats. In making goat barn plans, it is also wise to consult experts because they can decide the best construction. Dependence of the barn from factors such as a sloping ground and poor drainage can be addressed effectively by a competent architect or engineer. For relatively simple work, ordinary carpenters can also give very useful information.
