Figure 2.6: Granary-barn, known locally as a stadel, in Vispertal, Switzerland. The barn is supported on
toadstool-like legs incorporating slabs of gneiss to keep out rodents. A generous airspace is also left
between the building and the ground for ventilation, to reduce the potential for damage by moisture.
