Watch the Amish build an entire barn in less than 10 hours

You put a group of people together and give them a common goal and magic can happen. Even if that magic, in this case, is just building a barn. It's hypnotic to see the organization in this, like seeing a bunch of worker ants swarm together with one mind.


Penny Miller, the person who filmed the time lapse, writes:

I shot this video with my Canon 60d Camera using a Pixel TW-282/E3 Wireless remote timer set at 20 second intervals. I shot 1600 pictures from 7:00am until 5:00pm and compressed the 10 hours into 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

have you ever of the 3 hour house? There's an annual competition in Sn Diego Cali where teams try and build a house in 3 hours or less while meeting all of the strict California requirements. And then people but them or are donated for others to live in. It's all about resource allocation: have one person on the construction and take 5 years to make or throw 400 people at it and take 3 hours.
