I would love to be a part of an Amish barn raising someday. Until that happens, I'll be content to witness one in this time-lapse series.


Penny Miller, the person who created and posted this video on YouTube, used a Canon 60d Camera and a Pixel TW-282/E3 Wireless remote timer set at 20 second intervals. She took 1600 images, from 7:00am until 5:00pm, and compressed the 10 hours into 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
