In common parlance that could be a sty or a pen.  However, I don't think
you'd map it as
building=sty (or even building=pen) because it's not a building.

The bit of roof could be building=sty (a bit of a stretch, though).  I'd be
tempted to make it
building=roof.  Especially as that's how somebody might map it if seen from
the road but
no pigs were around at the time.
