Timber frame home video from Latvia
« on: August 09, 2017, 03:07:23 am »
Hi, I am not sure if this video has been shared with the forum yet, so here goes.

I just watched this video myself on youtube last night about a young family in Latvia building their timber frame home. They used their own timber from the farm.  In Jan 2017, Northmen Guild was started by John Neeman Tools. This family is a member of the guild. I enjoyed watching it. It has English subtitles. Enjoy.

And notice the dedication to Richard Proenneke, the 51 year old man that lived 30 years in Alaska in a cabin he built. The show "Alone in the Wilderness" is shown a lot on PBS.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

I'v seen it before but enjoyed watching it again, thanks for posting.

That should be one incredibly sturdy house!
