I have seen this video pop up in a few locations and can't seem to find the "english" version of it that is out there in the ether of the "net cloud."
If any reading this thread is curious or would like to understand more details of what is taking place in the video, I will do my best share what I have learned over the years in observing and building this way and other natural wood architecture modalities.
Jay C. White Cloud : by clicking on the U-tube Icon/Tab at the bottom, you can watch it and use the English Closed Captions, and pause it to linger
over the written word.
Because most of Closed Captions came from a Narrators script, the translation is much clearer than can generally be expected from a video log.
Ethriel Riverstone : I totally agree that the material placed between planks appears to be a very dark sheep's wool, it is the Traditional Tarred
Oakum made from old Hemp and Jute ropes!
There is a very good article on Oakum found at Wikipedia that is worth a read !
Alexandre : Thanks for posting ! Big AL

Thanks Allen, many I have shown this video to did not know about the "closed caption." I should have pointed that out. If I am able to find the "English Version" of this I will link it here.
The material used is indeed "jute" and/or "hemp fiber"oakum. A traditional material with many applications, and recipes for treatment and placement. In this video it is pretreated with "pine tar oil."
The methods shown in the video for this type of "hirsirakennus" (log architecture) has many variations often reflecting a region's own "style." Some for example use only moss and lichen treated with pine tar oil, while others will use "flax fiber" and/or hemp. Some will also mix wood ash with the saw dust, while others won't use dirt at all and only wood ash and/or sawdust mixed with wood ash under the floor. Many modalities and styles in this family of architecture...

Thank you Allen and Jay! I've never seen it done that way before but it seems way better to me.
