I found these houses at our local farm supply store [Bomgaars]. They come with some other accessories, covered wagon, stage coach, horses, people,horse drawn sickle mower, horse drawn dump rake, horse drawn plow,small storage shed and a modern wind mill that produces electricity,which we have many of in our area today. $19.99 and on sale for $17.00 for each set. The base is 9 1/4" x 6 3/8". Height of the house is 8 3/4". Door is about 2 3/4" tall X 1 1/4" wide.The roof is hinged for one side to lift up.This would be easy to add interior to.

The cowboys on the horses are about 2 1/4" and the wagon driver setting is about 1 1/2" in the brown house set. The 2 figures in the white house set are about 2 3/8" tall.

My local True Value hardware store has a boxes of different animals [and dinosaurs] that look about the right size for your farm. (I don't have a layout, so I didn't start measuring them!)

...And as such placing these in the 1/29--1/32 scale range. The house door size as noted comes to about 7'-4" in 1/32 scale
