Amish Barn Raising in Under 10 Hours: Time-Lapse

From Colossal: "Ohio resident Scott Miller shot this timelapse video earlier this year of dozens of Amish men raising a barn. The entire construction cycle takes place between 7am and 5pm — with at least an hour for lunch — and yet the bulk of the work is done by the end of the day."

Another traditional example: the massive thatched roofs of Shirakawa-go in Japan. The entire village turns out and work is completed quickly to keep the rains from coming in. The thatch bundles are stitched in place using a giant needle some six feet long which is passed back and forth from outside to inside.
