A Trombe wall is a passive solar building technique where a wall is built on the winter sun side of a building with a glass external layer and a high heat capacity internal layer separated by a layer of air. Heat in close to UV spectrum passes through the glass almost unhindered then is absorbed by the wall that then re-radiates in the far infrared spectrum which does not pass back through the glass easily, hence heating the inside of the building.

This is a great example of how much/little space it would add to extend the current roofline over the new addition. This is also the closest building I think I've seen online to the shape/siting of the granary, although this one is obviously oriented with the long roofline pointing south.
