There are smaller sets in the range available if your budget won’t stretch that far.

The roof panels attach with magnets making them easy for small hands to access, and enabling children to create their own farm scenes easily.

The cheapest price I have found is on Amazon, but lots of wooden toy retailers stock this one.
