    Building a medieval house in the woods, a 10 day bushcraft shelter. This is a full build video of the anglo saxon house with thatch roof that we built using simple hand tools. This medieval-era bushcraft camp was inspired by the anglo saxon "pit house". The saxons occupied Britain from the 5th to the 11th century. Many of their houses were built by digging a pit in the ground which would not only help to keep a consistent temperature in their homes throughout the year, but it would also mean that they needed less building materials to build the house upwards. We used simple hand tools: axe, saw, knife, pick axe, hand auger and drawknife to build this tiny house in the forest. I built this with my Dad in 10 days. See below for individual episodes of the Saxon House series where we talk about what we are doing and why.

      This is an edited down version of the Saxon House series. I put it together because soon I am heading back there to continue the series. To do work on the interior and a few more exterior projects. Thought you guys who haven’t watched the series can see it here: Finished filming the next episode of the Roundhouse series today too, keep an eye out for it! Cheers - Mike

        @Debakuva with the clay just find out what it is per sqaure inch and the wood and then find out what it all comes to. the human body can be used to messure things. so say your thump 2 inch's, your 4 nuckles 4 inches, say your right shoulder to your left intex finger 1 meter, from the floor to your belly button 1 meter, this is the same for most adults. when you see people handling the wood or standing next to some thing you can guess sizes and distences

      Coming from a phony guy without any real country life skill video to show around the simple life in the country in YT. This video got non talking but the real skill must to have to live in a REAL COUNTRY LIFE. Seen a lot of people in desolated countryside video in YT, but honestly speaking those are without any real constructive skill in the country life and just living in a sustainable surviving life. Hahaha No wonder this video got 9M viewer than those only maximum 80K viewer. Hahaha... Wish this REAL STUFF VIDEO hit IB ASAP................... STF............................................

      ﴿لَقَد كانَ لِسَبَإٍ في مَسكَنِهِم آيَةٌ جَنَّتانِ عَن يَمينٍ وَشِمالٍ كُلوا مِن رِزقِ رَبِّكُم وَاشكُروا لَهُ بَلدَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ وَرَبٌّ غَفورٌ﴾ [سبأ: ١٥] There was for [the tribe of] Saba’ in their dwelling place a sign: two [fields of] gardens on the right and on the left. [They were told], "Eat from the provisions of your Lord and be grateful to Him. A good land [have you], and a forgiving Lord." - Saheeh International ﴿فَأَعرَضوا فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم سَيلَ العَرِمِ وَبَدَّلناهُم بِجَنَّتَيهِم جَنَّتَينِ ذَواتَي أُكُلٍ خَمطٍ وَأَثلٍ وَشَيءٍ مِن سِدرٍ قَليلٍ﴾ [سبأ: ١٦] But they turned away [refusing], so We sent upon them the flood of the dam, and We replaced their two [fields of] gardens with gardens of bitter fruit, tamarisks and something of sparse lote trees. - Saheeh International ﴿ذلِكَ جَزَيناهُم بِما كَفَروا وَهَل نُجازي إِلَّا الكَفورَ﴾ [سبأ: ١٧] [By] that We repaid them because they disbelieved. And do We [thus] repay except the ungrateful? - Saheeh International ﴿وَجَعَلنا بَينَهُم وَبَينَ القُرَى الَّتي بارَكنا فيها قُرًى ظاهِرَةً وَقَدَّرنا فيهَا السَّيرَ سيروا فيها لَيالِيَ وَأَيّامًا آمِنينَ﴾ [سبأ: ١٨] And We placed between them and the cities which We had blessed [many] visible cities. And We determined between them the [distances of] journey, [saying], "Travel between them by night or by day in safety." - Saheeh International ﴿فَقالوا رَبَّنا باعِد بَينَ أَسفارِنا وَظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم فَجَعَلناهُم أَحاديثَ وَمَزَّقناهُم كُلَّ مُمَزَّقٍ إِنَّ في ذلِكَ لَآياتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبّارٍ شَكورٍ﴾ [سبأ: ١٩] But [insolently] they said, "Our Lord, lengthen the distance between our journeys," and wronged themselves, so We made them narrations and dispersed them in total dispersion. Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful. - Saheeh International ﴿وَلَقَد صَدَّقَ عَلَيهِم إِبليسُ ظَنَّهُ فَاتَّبَعوهُ إِلّا فَريقًا مِنَ المُؤمِنينَ﴾ [سبأ: ٢٠] And Iblees had already confirmed through them his assumption, so they followed him, except for a party of believers. - Saheeh International ﴿وَما كانَ لَهُ عَلَيهِم مِن سُلطانٍ إِلّا لِنَعلَمَ مَن يُؤمِنُ بِالآخِرَةِ مِمَّن هُوَ مِنها في شَكٍّ وَرَبُّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَيءٍ حَفيظٌ﴾ [سبأ: ٢١] And he had over them no authority except [it was decreed] that We might make evident who believes in the Hereafter from who is thereof in doubt. And your Lord, over all things, is Guardian. - Saheeh International ﴿قُلِ ادعُوا الَّذينَ زَعَمتُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ لا يَملِكونَ مِثقالَ ذَرَّةٍ فِي السَّماواتِ وَلا فِي الأَرضِ وَما لَهُم فيهِما مِن شِركٍ وَما لَهُ مِنهُم مِن ظَهيرٍ﴾ [سبأ: ٢٢] Say, [O Muḥammad], "Invoke those you claim [as deities] besides Allāh." They do not possess an atom's weight [of ability] in the heavens or on the earth, and they do not have therein any partnership [with Him], nor is there for Him from among them any assistant. - Saheeh International

      ﴿كَمَثَلِ الشَّيطانِ إِذ قالَ لِلإِنسانِ اكفُر فَلَمّا كَفَرَ قالَ إِنّي بَريءٌ مِنكَ إِنّي أَخافُ اللَّهَ رَبَّ العالَمينَ﴾ [الحشر: ١٦] [The hypocrites are] like the example of Satan when he says to man, "Disbelieve." But when he disbelieves, he says, "Indeed, I am disassociated from you. Indeed, I fear Allāh, Lord of the worlds." - Saheeh International ﴿فَكانَ عاقِبَتَهُما أَنَّهُما فِي النّارِ خالِدَينِ فيها وَذلِكَ جَزاءُ الظّالِمينَ﴾ [الحشر: ١٧] So the outcome for both of them is that they will be in the Fire, abiding eternally therein. And that is the recompense of the wrongdoers. - Saheeh International ﴿يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلتَنظُر نَفسٌ ما قَدَّمَت لِغَدٍ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبيرٌ بِما تَعمَلونَ﴾ [الحشر: ١٨] O you who have believed, fear Allāh. And let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow - and fear Allāh. Indeed, Allāh is Aware of what you do. - Saheeh International ﴿وَلا تَكونوا كَالَّذينَ نَسُوا اللَّهَ فَأَنساهُم أَنفُسَهُم أُولئِكَ هُمُ الفاسِقونَ﴾ [الحشر: ١٩] And be not like those who forgot Allāh, so He made them forget themselves. Those are the defiantly disobedient. - Saheeh International ﴿لا يَستَوي أَصحابُ النّارِ وَأَصحابُ الجَنَّةِ أَصحابُ الجَنَّةِ هُمُ الفائِزونَ﴾ [الحشر: ٢٠] Not equal are the companions of the Fire and the companions of Paradise. The companions of Paradise - they are the attainers [of success]. - Saheeh International

    86. atenis92

      i wonder how long such a house will last? 5 years? the wood used in the foundation will shurely rott away and the straw would probbably also go bad quickly..

      1. Stephen Rivera

        It’s all easy to replace though. Either stay on top of it with maintenance or, worse case scenario, spend 10 days building one every five years. I’m more concerned about not being able to heat the house to be honest.
