Thatch House Build: Primitive Moss Insulation | Bushcraft Saxon House (PART 11)

We continue building the bushcraft saxon house. This episode we use moss as insulation for the shelter. This is a traditional primitive method used to seal gaps in the logs on log cabins in both Scandinavia and North America. I gathered moss from the nearby area and used a stick to push it into the gaps in the logs. This will help to insulate the bushcraft house and keep it warmer in winter by keeping out cold wind. Dad then joins me to help mix clay and straw and use primitive technology to clay the inside walls of the saxon house. This method is said to be widely used by Anglo Saxons and is known as wattle and daub. The mixture usually consists of clay, straw and water. However, traditionally they also added animal dung which would act as a binding agent to prevent cracks in the walls when it dries.
There are still a few more jobs left to do on the saxon shelter. I need to cap the roof ridge, which I will try and do soon. Then we need to finish the clay walls inside, and build a door for the front entrance. Thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe so you get notified of the next upload!
