We continue building a viking house in the forest using hand tools only. In Part 2 we build a timber frame bushcraft style. We use a bit and brace and make wood dowels to build the a frame timber roof structure. The foundations of the viking shelter consists of cedar logs which we notched using log cabin notches (saddle notches) and we made the walls two cedar logs high. We burned the ends of the a frame and dug a deep hole down into the clay layer. By burning the ends using the ancient Japanese technique “shou sugi ban” it will help to preserve the wood and make the structure last longer. We then scavenged for a long cedar log to use as the ridgepole which runs down the top of the viking house.
In Part 3 we build a viking long pit for a long fire. We use clay and stones that we scavenged from the woods. We also cook fresh fish and squid over the fire pit which is outside of the viking camp.
