Building a Saxon House with Hand Tools: Front Entrance, Wattle, Walls | Bushcraft Project (PART 6)

The building of the bushcraft saxon house with hand tools only continues. This time we build the door frame, wattle the side walls and build the gable ends out of logs. The timber frame structure is much sturdier now that we have built the rafters and battens or lath. It also helped that we used traditional mortise and tenon joints for the roundwood timber frame. We finished building the gable end and decided it would nice looking more like a log cabin at the front. For the back we used vertical logs for the gable end. We used pine and birch for the wattle, although for traditional wattle we would have used green hazel saplings, there are none in this area of the woods. In Part 7 we will be using traditional wattle and daub technique which was used by the Saxons hundreds of years ago. We will put the daub material onto the wattle walls and hopefully it will set hard like concrete. Then it will be onto the roof. Thanks for watching!
