This was filmed in Latvia. Richard Proenneke was the fellow featured on public television in the Alone in the Wilderness film. He built a log home in Alaska using similar tools and methods, just not as fancy.
This was very good, thanks for sharing.

It is a shame we have forgotten the old ways and in many ways outlawed them. Here we can't use lumber cut on out own land. it has to have a stamp on it that is "big brother" approved. The way that house was built was beautiful. Thanks Ed

BUT, you can cut all the lumber and then hire a "grader" to come in and "grade" it, so you can build with it.

I am amazed.

Why do they char some of the wood?

Where do those telephone poles grow like that?

I have to say that it not seems to be in Finlanf.. close guess that is somewhere in Russia or Baltic.. still nice video. !

Latvian style is mentioned, but actual location not mentioned or I missed it.

A long description of the house is posted on the Vimeo link in the corner of the video, and will answer many of the questions posted.

The company posting the video is:
John Neeman Tools
Amatas novads, Skujenes pagasts, "Uplejas" LV-4142, Latvia
