There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Those constructions stay sturdy for hundreds of years. I'm sure they're pretty earthquake safe too.

HOLY FECK! That guy is uber-lumberjack! He skinned the side of one tree and several fell!

Nice, if you have the lumber and money. Here's an affordable alternative for any permies out there.

we looked Into cordwood building even bought a couple books.
we decided that it wasn't for our northern winters. the shrinkage of the logs inside the crete made these houses drafty and hard to patch.
but they sure do look nice.

Love those inexpensive homes.
If you pick the right piece of land here, there's plenty of trees and granite to build a house out of the material on the land.
The upside, it's all free.
The drawback is waiting a couple years for the pine to dry so you can use it for construction.

The fellow in the vid said he mixed sawdust and lime with the concrete and suggested split cords, not whole, to minimize shrinkage and add insulation. I wonder if a coat of varnish would help?

I never got a chance to watch the first video until now, it's therapeutic to watch!
Not so much with newer construction, electric saws, compressors, nail guns...
Sucks all the relaxation out of it.
Those guys are mega talented, cutting those notches with hand axes like butter.

lmao.gif I've been around it for 10 years and still only know a wee bit.
Swedish is quite doable, but Finnish is honestly WAY closer to Japanese than English. Heck, I'm not really around anyone who even speaks it, so it's not something I'd pick up over time.

Finnish is a fantastic language.
You can sort of...think the unthinkable in it.

Lived here for 52 years - still hear new idioms and expressions, daily.

Some of it renders the neomarxist doublespeak useless, too.
Very entertaining to watch the propagandists struggle with it. chuckle.gif

This is pretty cool...

96 Sq. Foot Finnish Micro-Cabin Built Small To Forego Permits

İmage

he was able to find recycled materials for the majority of the construction, and he estimates that the cost was somewhere around US $10,500
