This tree looks very straight and big enough to make a pillar! The tree meets the requirement that it be big, strong, long and straight to make the pillar After I chose the direction I wanted the tree to fall, I proceeded to chop it down The cut facing the fallen tree will be higher During the cutting process, pay attention and find cover when trees fall, avoiding life-threatening dangers.
select a piece of bamboo small enough to make a ruler and use it to measure and cut the pieces of wood to your desired size.
Here I cut a piece of wood 3.
4m long to make a columns Build a frame as a pillar position for the log so it will not slip and be more convenient during peeling, handling and trimming.
After peeling and feeling that the tree was bigger than my original size, I peeled off another layer of wood to make it smaller, round and straight.
Note that when using an ax to peel off wood, there must be some skill in use: choosing the right angle so that the ax cannot endanger me even in the worst case the ax flies off the handle , I use my feet to stomp the trunk of the wood to make a ruler, the goal is to make the trim lines more straight choose the angle, adjust the force in the most appropriate way.
use a wild rope around one end of the column to pull it away The first column was pulled back successfully by me I have been doing this for over a week After more than a week of collecting trees, these are all the materials that I will use to build houses Necessary tools: Chisel, hand planer, homemade iron nails Here are yarns taken from banana bark (see how to make a video in the previous video).
Grind charcoal into powder and mix with water to form squid Arrange and trim all columns to their exact size scrape up for the column, handle all the columns to prepare for the next stage take a piece of bamboo to make a ruler for the measurement job Visualize the house and place it in the right position, choose the slope of the roof, measure the width and thickness of the crossbar.
Measure the center of the column and draw a line through the heart of the column Punch holes in columns and trails to lock the bar Measure and draw a line through the center of the horizontal bar to divide it evenly Chisel, create the ledge on the beam to match the hole in the column Check the fit to check the tightness of joints If everything is correct, move on to the next hole Note that after finishing the chisel, the hole needs to be flattened around in a certain direction to get maximum tightness when installing the beam.
This is a high-precision joint, so to have this kind of tightness, it takes dexterity, meticulousness and repetition.
When the joints are fitted together, it creates a solid bond for the house Accurate measurement, chiselling and installation as part of the house The second part is made similar to the first one, but because the middle part has no long pillar and two horizontal beams instead it is a main girder.
The rest do the same On the main girder is a short pole, additional support from girder to the roof Parts of the house that have been installed will be removed and leave room for subsequent sections The work is marked on beams and columns with the aim not to confuse beams and columns during the construction of a complete house.
collect layers of wood mulch and sweep the floor to start erecting List stones with relatively flat planes to support the bottom of the column, by size Dig holes to erect the truss frame supporting the house during the erection process Because of limited human resources, building a home is a difficult task Tie supportive bamboo to the post so that when erected, use it to avoid falling erection then tie the pillar to the frame so it doesn't fall down processed the next column Hammer wood from the top of the column until the beams and columns are connected Installation of a girder is a bit more dangerous, but that's okay, being careful little by little is fine.
It may not seem easy, but luckily everything is under my control How to install my main girder: put one end of the beam on the crossbar, the other end is carried up the ladder, mount one end at a time and compress it.
Install support column Putting small pieces of bamboo together to form a mass large enough, pressed on beams that function as a bridge to move back and forth.
It is not too bad This is a way of installing the upper slabs Install supports to set up roofs Remove scaffolding This is the whole picture when it's done, it doesn't look bad, does it? It took me almost a month to complete this stage, the rest I will show you in the next video, remember to subscribe to the channel, turn on the bell to be notified when I post a new video and please support me by Share videos for friends to see.
