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.

  • Awesome to see the method step by step! Thanks! One question: since the floor is recessed, did this type not catch and hold water with heavy rains? Not from the roof leaking, per se, but from water flowing on the ground. Or were the sides bermed?

  • What I'm curious about is why wasn't the clay/mud+straw mixture also not used to fill the gaps between the logs, and instead used moss? I saw in your smaller/broken up video segments of this build that you used moss cause it can create insulation, but wouldn't the straw and mud mixture provide the same?

  • Totally nuts. Most inefficient method of construction ever construed. it's no wonder the English have the disposition they do (or used to - Lord knows there is No England anymore). Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way. You could have built four far more secure, comfortable and stout log cabins in the time it took to build that shanty. Not to mention the entire mud sill would have been rotten in 2 years.
