Viking Turf Homes


The folks over at Failblog came up with this interesting article on viking turf houses. The technique is very similar to cob construction and provides for a tremendous amount of thermal mass. Though the original designs were very unhealthy (Fire pit with no chimney/flue? No thank you!) these could be adapted as mid-term to long-term expedient shelters.

I just found this site as I was looking for information on surviving the upcoming chaos we are all about to face. Although I won't be able to spend an inordinate amount of time here, I will most certainly be checking in from time to time. So hello to all from upstate NY.

Hello all! Western NY here. Happy to meet you all. I am a disabled grandma who tries to put something back every payday because I believe food is going to become harder and harder to come by. I really like the concept of this site and am excited to read what others here have to say.
