Jeez while your on here YouTube THE FOUR HOUR WORK WEEK AUDIOBOOK and push play.

Interresting discussion below. In case nobody mentioned it, the advantage of splitting versus sawing shingles, is that split wood is totally with the grain, leaving no point of infiltration which is a good feature in a roof.

That's what I want to know lol I did see a couple guys build a dugout a frame shelter with turf roof, they put turf also around outside of the hut and built the ground up a bit around it so any run off would run down and away from the hut but I haven't seen if it's worked for them or not.

I somewhat agree but if you use only the techniques available to the people of the time what you construct has a high chance of being accurate.

Unbelievable, what a bitter old fart, probably just hurting inside from old age impotence and a wasted life.

Not much like the old American cabins. Those had beams so large they looked like they were made by giants.
