Traditional dwelling, moss house

Share Share Share Share Share Share Share



About where we lived, we built log houses to house 3 families. It would be a big house and everyone helped to build it. We built windows, pretty rough, and for a roof, we only used moss, not commercial shingles. So we flattened the moss, and when it rains, the rain does not pass through as the moss absorbs the rain. And when winter comes, there is a lot of snow built up there, but the snow did not melt, and there was no dripping. It was nice, it was warm inside. That's what it looked like where we lived.
