Jepson Field Book volume 21 page 130
Plumas Co. Chester (Big M'dw's [Meadows]) - As we came down from Juniper Lake and neared Chester my attention was attracted to a fine new barn by the roadside.  Its roof shone white like frost-work in the afternoon sun.  It was a remarkable sight that roof since the shingles were made of Sugar Pine!  The  uprights and plates, in fact all the beams except the end uprights were hewn pieces made out of Yellow Pine.  THe uprights 12" x 12", the beams 12 x 12, too.  The end uprights are of Incense Cedar.  All the uprights straight through the middle of the barn on either side the driveway are set four feet in the ground. :::::::::  June 13, 1910 They rest on cement 4 in. thick and are lilned with cement to the surface of the ground.  The rafters are one piece, not spliced, made of Tamrac Pine.  The whole frame is made of hewn stuff except the braces at angles which are sawn Yellow Pine (4"x4").  The boarding is sawn Yellow Pine.  Inside as one looks up at the roof there are strips that glow red like fire, the places where the shingles do not quite touch the light thus sifting through the second-course shingle.  - Pinus murrayana trees in the m'd'w [meadow] here full of old cones.  The cones persist as long as 5 years.
