We continue to build a bushcraft viking house in the woods with hand tools. Part 3 focuses on building a viking long pit, or stone fire pit, for the inside of the viking house. We dig the foundations of the pit using a shovel and our hands. We dig through the soil layer and then dig down to the clay layer. We store the clay for later use. We then head into the forest to find some large stones to line the fire pit. We used the clay to help set the stones in place and we do more pointing on the stone slabs around the edge of the pit. The viking house build is coming along nicely. It now has a foundation of cedar logs, secured together using log cabin notches or saddle notches. We have a timber frame built using wood dowels to hold it in place. We burnt the ends of the frame to prevent the rot from the ground. We stop for lunch and Dustin cooks fresh caught squid in egg and bread crumbs over a bed of fresh salad with sweet chilli sauce dip. We also grill whole fish over the fire viking style. Next we will focuses on building more viking beds in the camp. Thanks for watching and subscribe so you don’t miss the next episode!
