Building The Dutch Barn was produced to help inform NY teachers and educators whose classrooms will be raising a small scale wooden Dutch barn model - about the building techniques called timberframing as well as the history and unique qualities of the Dutch barn.
The footage of the class raising was shot in December 2010 at the site of the Greater Wemp Barn on Onesquetha Road - Feura Bush, NY in Southern Albany County.
The footage of other Dutch barns in the region was shot by the filmmaker over a period of years from 2007 to the present as part of an ongoing larger documentary film project about Dutch barns and Dutch culture in pre-colonial America.
