Ecological timber frame homestead project

The foundation and the ground works are over. I have made some hand splitted rock foundation and the basement under the house:

Now the framing has started. All the timber is prepared by myself in my forest at the right phase of moon in deep and cold winter:

I have designed my family house and I will build it till the end only by myself. As much as possible I am doing with human energy. So I don’t want to consume the other ones. The house will have a traditional timber frame and the walls will be filled with hand hewn logs in one layer and then insulated with pine wood shavings mixed with clay. The roof will be apsen shingled as traditional here in our country.

The wall infill system will be:

1st layer – Hand hewn pine logs with tenons on both sides (160 mm thick) that will join in the mortise inside the posts (the long groove) that you can see in the photos that I have posted below.

2nd layer – 250 mm thick pine wood shaving mix with dry clay.

3rd layer – 25mm thick pine boarding (as the rough siding)

4th layer – 25mm thick vertical pine board siding (as the finishing).

So the whole thickness of the wall will be approx 50 cm.

I am the “victim” of the ecological philosophy – so that’s why I was looking for possibilities to insulate the house with natural materials.

Here are some visualizations of the project.

This is how the house will look at the end:

And here some 3D visualizations:
