This tent is made of a high quality, impregnated cotton of 340 g/m2 grammage with antibacterial and rainproof properties.

The barn has 3 x 3 x 3 m dimensions. It consists of 5 parts: 4 detachable walls and a separate roof.

Tents of this type can be found in numerous iconographic sources from the medieval period. Usually, similar models were used as a form of stock, or barn for horses during war expeditions.

The construction of a barn tent provides a very large usable area, requiring a small number of ropes. Frame construction also gives an option of expanding the storage space by joining a few tents.

There is an option of self-setting up a roof on a frame and using it as a form of shed.

A set consists of:
- 5 sheets: a roof and 4 walls - a frame: 2 scantlings of 3 m length each, 1 crossbar of 3 m of length; all divided in half and joined by metal profiles
- 6 side scantlings of 2 m of length each
- 27 tent pegs
- 2 anti-wind ropes, 10 m long each with loops in the middle
- 6 guy ropes, 4 m of long each
