See How He Build Log House Underground From Start To Finish 15 Days In The Forest

  • 4 min read

This video will take you through the entire process of building a dugout. The video contains 3 hours worth of live sounds that are perfect for relaxing before bed. You will learn how to construct a house underground within 15 days in the woods. The video starts with finding the best location in the forest to build the log cabin. The video is quick to cut and organize logs for the construction of the log house. Wearing gloves while building your log house will help you avoid slivers. You will need to measure the size of the building before you dig the base.

The thermal mass of the subsoil helps to maintain the temperature of the cabin, which is why it is so effective at protecting the cabin against snow, ice and frosty night, as well as the scorching sun. It also helps to preserve stored food and crops (if you are building a greenhouse). If you are building a greenhouse or a log home, the thermal stability and heating and cooling of earth will benefit the people and plants.

Dugout shelters are also suitable as greenhouses. With internal microclimates similar to thermal comfort, they can be used for both crops and sheltering people or animals.

The constant earth temperature is the key to a dugout cabin shelter. In partially buried buildings the interior temperature is equal to the average local annual temperature. This is made possible by the thermal inertia, which is the temperature of the portion of the building below the surface of the ground. It lags behind the temperature of the air several months, so it is not affected by large changes like snow, ice or heat waves. It is possible to avoid the interior of a building registering sudden changes in temperature. This method is known to many different cultures.

The construction of partially buried buildings is simple, but it yields immediate results. As a result, Hurricane Sandy has brought back their age-old benefits. These structures are able to protect from both snow, ice and frosty night as well as scorching heat by taking advantage of the constant temperature (thermal mass) of subsoil. This is especially useful for stored food, planted crops, and humans in regions with unfriendly climates.
