The tag building=barn can be used to tag a building as a [W] barn i.e. an agricultural building used for storage and as a covered workplace.

How to map

Map the building as usual and tag it with building=barn or alternatively as building=* with a different value and the tag building:use=barn. The latter variant is recommended in case the building was not originally built as a barn but is now used as one.
