In the U.S., older barns were built from timbers hewn from trees on the farm and built as a log crib barn or timber frame, although stone barns were sometimes built in areas where stone was a cheaper building material. In the mid to late 19th century in the U.S. barn framing methods began to shift away from traditional timber framing to "truss framed" or "plank framed" buildings. Truss or plank framed barns reduced the number of timbers instead using dimensional lumber for the rafters, joists, and sometimes the trusses. The joints began to become bolted or nailed instead of being mortised and tenoned.

About Marcia Lee Jones
Where does one start with a quick biography, which will
give some insight to the artist inside? For me, photography
was a way to get my feelings out by capturing moments
in my life. Memories are one of the biggest
ways to experience emotions of all types. Photography
was that answer to capture moments that were
ignored by others that would elicit an emotion.
For instance, the way light can highlight an object brilliantly

be dramatic or soft. To be able to do that with any
form of art is important to the human psyche. We all must
be able to express ourselves and my way is in black, white and color.
Hope you will enjoy some of these...
