Description :

We build a bushcraft viking house in the woods using hand tools only. Part 1 focuses on cutting the cedar logs for the foundations of the viking house. The foundations are only going to be two cedar logs high. The hand tools we use are an axe, saw, hammer, and wrecking bar. We begin by using an axe and saw to create saddle notches to make the log cabin foundation. We are only building the foundation two cedar logs high, because the timber frame of the roof will come right down to the forest floor. We use 10 logs overall for the foundation of the viking shelter. We burned the ends of the support stakes using Shou-Sugi Ban. An ancient wood preserving technique invented by the Japanese. It helps to evaporate any moisture in the wood and creates a sealed, protective layer to help prevent it from rotting as quickly. Cedar is pretty rot proof and is often used in Log Cabin building. We cook up some food over the fire and then finish the foundation of the Bushcraft Viking House in the woods. In Part 2, we will be focusing on building the timber frame of the structure. Using cedar logs and hand tools. We hope to build a viking long pit, raised beds, a door and a porch. Eventually we hope to cook venison and other food over the open fire inside the viking camp.
