Building a Turf Roof Viking House with Hand Tools: Bushcraft Project (PART 3) Scarica

  • Join us in the forest as we continue to build a bushcraft viking house with turf roof. Using simple hand tools, we built a basic timber frame using mortise and tenon joints. We then added some rafters with some log cabin notches to support them and we lashed these to the ridgepole of the shelter. For part 3 we focused on harvesting the turf for the roof. With the wovel hazel hurdles attached to the roof, these acted as a strong support for the turf to sit on top. It also helps to spread the weight of the turf across the frame itself. We used a spade and dug the turf from nearby glades in the forest. We have never done this before and it is not historically correct to the icelandic turf roof viking house that gave us the inspiration for this build. However, our thinking is that the roots of the turf and moss will grow and intertwine with the wovel hazel hurdles below it and in theory we hope to create a living roof. We are not sure on how well the roof will drain yet, or how long the grass will stay living. I guess time will tell! We then cook up a chilli feast in a cast iron dutch oven over the fire. In Part 4 we hope to build the walls of the shelter and perhaps the beds inside. Thanks for watching! Please subscribe if you enjoyed it.

    The turf roof shelter is looking great Mike! The roots should help hold it to the roof once it starts growing.

    Fun fact, if I remember correctly, the name Dutch oven comes from a misunderstanding.

    Try pouring some cornbread batter on top of the chili when it’s nearly done and cook a bit. It’s fantastic

    Loving the interest in nearby trees and leaves... I’d love to see more of that nice oak tree next to the Saxon house

    I love the videos where it’s just you alone in the woods. It never feels lonely, if that makes sense. More like you’ve brought us with you, and we’re sitting in companionable silence. It’s quite nice.
