Building a Saxon House (Grubenhaus) with Hand Tools: Bushcraft Project (PART 5)


Building a Saxon House (Grubenhaus) with Hand Tools: Bushcraft Project (PART 5)

We continue building a bushcraft saxon house or grubenhaus in the forest using hand tools only. For part 5 we carry on with building the roundwood timber frame and roof. We use a mixture of traditional tools and modern day hand tools. The bark peeling jig has been really useful when using the drawknife to debark the logs. We finished off putting up the rafters and then continued to put up the roof battens or lath. The whole saxon pit house structure is build using pine, which is not ideal for roundwood construction but we are trying to use as much of the resources in the area. Most of the wood has actually been recycled from my bushcraft camp which was built in the nearby area. Dad had also built a pallet wood wheel barrow using reclaimed pallet wood. This has helped us to recycle all of the bark peelings and keep them dry in our pallet wood log store. We get the fire going and pan fry some fish with potatoes. Thanks for watching and see you in Part 6 where we hope to build the walls. After that it will be time to build the roof of the saxon house. It is also sometimes known as a grubenhaus, grub hut or a pit house.
