I Use Birch Bark For Roofing My Log Cabin | Forest of Sweden
- Am 21 Okt 2021 veröffentlicht
- Birch Bark is a fascinating material that mother nature provides. Holds lots of properties and uses. Perfect for water sealing a log cabin roof and holds for more than a 100 years. Birch Bark is easily peeled in the middle of summer, here in Sweden. If harvested correctly it doesn't hurt the tree and will grow back.
My local village used to dig for clay and burn it into roof tiles, a long time ago. These tiles are still used on buildings here today and can be found on abandoned log cabins. I had the opportunity to reuse these very same tiles, that will hopefully last even through my generation.
When I graduated high school I sought a big challenge in life. To alone, with only simple hand tools and raw power, build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish forest. I film everything myself and edit these videos so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do. I have no earlier experience in any of this, just a visualization of what I want to achieve and willpower to learn and improve everything necessary. So I enjoy reading good advice in the comments. Enjoy!

What Clothes Do You Recommend For Hard use in the Forest❓
I have always been very cautious with answering this question, because I have used a lot of different clothes and brands. I have now been very fortunate to work with the Swedish brand "Revolution Race" 🪵🏞️ for 5 months and counting. I can now happily say that this is a brand I stand by. These clothes are priceworthy, durable and functional. What I love about the company is that they really listen to the customers and is willing to make improvements.
