In the U.S., a building for the storage of corn, and the like. In its characteristic form, its sides are constructed of slats, set with open spaces between for the circulation of air to dry the corn; and it is raised above the ground on posts with projecting caps of sheet metal to guard against the entrance of vermin. Commonly, the sides slope outward toward the top, as some protection against the weather. Also known as corn house, corn loafte, or corn loft.
