Several Dozen Amish Men Build A Giant Barn Together In Just 1 Day

It’s amazing to watch them work like little ants.

It takes a village to raise a child. To alleviate some stress on an individual, it would be wonderful if that same village could work together on other projects as well.

It would be nice to live somewhere where everyone helps each other out.

In the morning, you wake up to the smell of breakfast cooking, drink your coffee, and eat your hearty breakfast. Afterward, you’ll be greeted by your neighbors and friends from the community.

The men in your community go straight to one location since they each have a task to complete. Everyone has already begun working before the sun rises.

Around 50 Amish men work on a barn in the video below. It took them just 10 hours to complete the whole process, which went viral.

There is a particular way of doing things among the Amish

This probably won’t surprise you if you are familiar with the Amish way of life, but if you aren’t, it’s time to learn more about them.

Amish people live a simpler life away from technology and modern science.


The way of life of the Amish community may seem strange to some, since modern technology is designed to make life easier. For the Amish people, it’s just a way to corrupt their minds.

They work for everything they need, and this video shows how hard-working they are.

When you watch the entire video, you’ll see how dedicated they are to their community.

How does barn raising work?

This video shows a compressed 10 hour barn-raising by Amish. There are exactly 3 minutes and 30 seconds of time-lapse footage in the compressed construction video.

This incredible video was created by Ohio resident Scott Miller using 1600 images taken from 7:00 a.m. until late at night, around 5:00 p.m.

Heavy machinery was not used to complete the barn in one day.

Let’s talk about how barn-raising works before we watch the video.

Infobloom reports:

In a barn raising, members of the community work together to build a barn or another structure, such as a house or church. It took less than a day for a well-organized barn raising to put together the materials needed into a recognizable barn, although the structure might need some finishing.”

Amish men donate their time and effort to finish the structure in one day, which is considered a labor of love.


In addition, the ladies of the community would prepare a feast for the hard workers.

Is it possible to imagine how beautiful this community is?

After lunch, everyone shares a warm and hearty meal, and the men go back to their projects while the women and children clean.

A hard day’s work but a fulfilling one. As the sun sets, so does the barn raising.

Each will thank the other for their hard work and bid each other goodbye.

The goal has been achieved – there’s a beautiful new barn standing in its place at the end of a long day’s work.

Time-lapse video of barn raising

The barn-raising video shows how disciplined the Amish are.

Every person has his or her own task and works without supervision, which makes the barn-raising process easier and faster.

The barn is quite large, so it’s amazing that they finished the project in just 10 hours without using any machines!
