german_barn__builder Today I was back working for client we worked for previously. About five years ago we had the opportunity to stabilize this #Germanbarn. It is the only #Pennsylvaniabarn West of the Susquehanna River, with this Truss system that I am aware of . It is a liegender Dachstuhl Germanic roof. Are #European Friends probably see this all the time. But here in the US it's very rare.#Welshrunbuilders #Liegenderdachstuhl 2w

german_barn__builder Today we get to work on a barn we haven't worked on yet! My #Brothers installing pine tongue and groove beaded siding. #Pennsylvaniabarn #Germanbarn #Welshrunbuilders 3w
  •   w.r.builders Dudes look like legit barn builders! 3w
  •   mountainharvestorganics Impressive. Our barn has tin siding. One day, we must find caretakers for our farm, just so we can venture north and tour some amazing timber frame barns! #mhofarm 3w
  •   german_barn__builder @mountainharvestorganics come to Franklin County PA. we've had the opportunity to work on dozens of Barnes and other timber frame buildings, with heavy German influence. I know I'm probably a little biased but are #1800s buildings are wonderful. 3w

  •   calmgrove Is this two or more centuries old too? Nice to see medieval building techniques still holding their own in the New World 3w
  •   w.r.builders @calmgrove I think two or more centuries is very likely but I did not have permission to get inside and really poke around. It's a wonderful barn in terrible need of restoration. Tracing old world building techniques to the new world with the immigrants is fascinating! Here in south central Pennsylvania we have a very strong German influence in our barns . Not a expert here at all just leaning. Thanks for your interest! 3w
  •   calmgrove That tried and tested construction with slit windows is familiar to me from medieval tithe barns to early 19C buildings here in the UK -- I suppose if it ain't broke don't fix it (until new materials make an appearance). Pleased to have found your posts! 3w
  •   historiclakes Remarkable structure! 2w
