      you may like his videos.. enjoyed yours ..the detailed work. thumbs up impressive to see..
      In 1968, Charles Bello and his wife, Vanna Rae, moved onto 240 acres of redwood forest looking to live a simpler life off the land. They had spent their savings to purchase the land so they got to work building their home themselves. Their first structure was a panelized A-frame that they erected in 5 days (with help from a couple family members). The total cost was $2,800.
      The property is a half-hour drive down a dirt road and it was bare land when they arrived so Charles and Vanna Rae built their own infrastructure: roads, bridges and went decades without refrigeration nor phone (they eventually installed PV panels and cabling for phone lines).
      After 15 years in the A-frame, they built a cabin in the woods, and there they lived for a decade until the trees began to block out their views. In 1991 Charles (who once apprenticed under famed architect Richard Neutra) designed the Parabolic Glass House. With a curvilinear wood roof and two curved walls of windows, the home feels enveloped in trees.
      Charles and Vanna Rae built it for $8,500 with the timber they milled themselves, using salvaged materials for everything from doorknobs to stoves. The couple relied on photovoltaics, solar thermal and gas for power, and a dug-in greenhouse attached to the home provided much of their food. By canning and preserving, they could go for months without going to a grocery store. Their two boys were homeschooled. The couple supported themselves selling Christmas trees.
      Nearly all the old-growth trees on the property were logged in the early 20th century, but Charles has spent the past half-century restoring the land. He and his wife set up the Redwood Forest Institute in 1997 to manage and preserve the forest. He has carefully selected 1,000 trees to be preserved for 2 millennia as the next generation of old-growth.
      Now, 88 years old and a widower, Charles is determined to find successors; he hopes to find "three professional couples in their early 40's, financially independent, who want to settle on the property continuing 52 years stewardship of this special place in a sustainable lifestyle where one does for himself or herself rather than urban living". He is currently building "glamping" guest houses that he hopes will help fund the enterprise.

      Most impressive to know they copied most the wood off the work of the original builder that made this house 300 years ago. Whats most impressive is humans have done far more longer ago and this just bearly scratches the surface. I could never do this tho and ur beyond talented with this work

    Respect! Coming from Germany I know good craftsmanship for roofing and this topped everything I've seen before. You can see your love to detail and taking on each challenge with your own pace vs. having a contractor shooting cheap nails and staples. Will pay off for sure. This roof will last a century or more.
    I now live in USA and cringe every time I see them build houses in the cheapest possible way in 4-6 months, turnkey ready, then ask a fortune for it. Thanks for uploading and producing this video. This will keep the old methods alive.

    this was in my recommended for weeks before I finally watched it, and I'm glad I did, just amazing, what stands out the most to me is the little details like sanding all the corners, a lot of time consuming work, and you guys had power tools, makes you appreciate even more what carpenters 300yrs ago did when building these homes, again, just an amazing job

    Well done TheXvid for finally recommending something good! As an engineer myself with 30 years in my chosen trade (taught by my Dad), this video really warmed my heart, made me smile & almost made me cry when the old Makita wasn't enough for the ancient oak... Great job, brilliant video, looking forward to more 👏👏👏

    This was phenomenal. My deepest respect to you and your father, and the friends who helped. The video was so beautifully made! I loved all the little unexpected bits! The craftsmanship makes me proud to be English. I've been watching so many restoration shows out of the UK and learnt so much: The skills and crafts I didn't even know existed a few years ago, and ... how do I explain this? I live in the US and see houses go up in a matter of months. They're sold for millions and they are soulless and gutless and mostly ostentatious. When I see the love and the hours, the detail and the deep caring that goes into a build like THIS ONE, it makes me cry. Seriously. To know that there are places on this earth and people who WILL take the time and make the effort, out of love and respect for the old traditions and for the integrity of the build... because we know these things will last and be even more beautiful as time passes... I can die happy, knowing this. You can be deeply proud of the work you do. Blessings!
    Apropos the A.S., wishing you Healing.

    The precision on this build is actually mind boggling.. no mastic infills, no foam sprayed to cover holes (just to secure tiles).. just amazing craftmanship which gets things to the mm. As an architect I am beyond impressed with how much attention and time would have been taken to design this to that kind of preciseness. Watching the jigs that you used to level the concrete to get the rafters bang on is incredible.. Well done guys.

      There is no way you're a professional architect if you think any of the processes in this video are "incredible". These are all pretty basic construction techniques, albeit impressively executed by a small 2-man team. I suggest you get out on site more.

    I don't know what your professional experience has been, but I'm incredibly impressed with your work and your knowledge of old building methods to rebuild and restore your barn. It was during the prep, before tile began that I was blown away most. "How does he know this?" I'm asking myself. You're a historian and builder. Wow.

    Watching this makes me appreciate even more how the original carpenters 300 years ago were skilled. No electric power tools just steel saws and lots of muscle. I bet they had one person just to keep the blades and chisels sharp enough to cut as the steel would not have been as strong as it is these days. Remarkable.

    • Troy Belding
      Troy Belding 3 months ago

      @Kyle Anuar We likely didn't lose much of any of those recipes. Blacksmiths passed things down, and sometimes shared between them. It's just these are forged alloys, not cast. Modern metallurgy _can_ surpass the old metals - they just don't, because it's not cost effective.

    • Troy Belding
      Troy Belding 3 months ago

      You'd be surprised at how good the steel was in the tools. It depended on the blacksmith's skill. The original beams were probably cut with adzes from the trees. The roof rails look to be more contemporary with the concrete tiles, same with the nails. They were still pretty raw, possibly cut by saw pit rather than a mill. I'd suspect that the reason for the concrete fiber sheets was that the original tiles had had enough problems (losses) that the wood was already rotting. Some were likely salvaged for the rest of the structure, and then covered with the 'latest technology' that they could get that looked similar.

    • Bart Humphries
      Bart Humphries 3 months ago

      There's a tradeoff between hardness and softness. Harder steel means it dulls more slowly but it also means it takes more time and effort to sharpen. They tend to use slightly softer steel these days. But we have electric grindstones and don't have to work a grindstone with footpedals or by trying to turn on/off a connection to a waterwheel, so it's easier for us these days to sharpen.

      Actually we've lost the 'recipes' for metallurgy of old, their steels are amazingly stronger with a mix of 7 to 20+ types of metal including meteorites.

And the woodwork, also was a pleasure to see you guys working with really professional and lovely tools like the chainsaw for angle cuts and the scarfing cut joints of the oak. Great work, a satisfaction to watch such things here. The best is the leather tool bag! Thanks for sharing this with us. Now I want to go back to the roof and do some tiles again:-D makes me smile

    It’s rare that I’ll watch something of this length in its entirety, especially if I don’t know the channel or the content. But this was engaging, start to finish! I really enjoyed following your journey, in a way that I’m unlikely to ever emulate myself, but I never felt patronised like you do on some DIY channels, only that I was leaning something (ie. kerfing).

    Wow, just incredible the hard work you put into this. Glad I stayed the course to watch all the way through! Takes me back to working with my father when I was a young boy and the skills I learned from him, not that I am using them these days as I moved to live in Thailand! I am however restoring wooden garden furniture made here with the various local wood found here! Full credit to you and your building skills, it was a real pleasure time out for me to watch and the location in France, which incidentally I traveled and lived in the countryside as I move around! Love it and the quality tools you use! I subscribed about half way through!

    As French, I recognize directly that you are restoring a house in the same region where I just have finished my own restoration after 40 years. The work you have done is not only huge but professional. The tools that you are using are impressive, far away from what I have seen by the local professional. Being myself very conservative about restoration of ancient house, I was helped by a magazine “Maisons paysannes de France” which guided me in certain works linked to old technics and tools. In fact, based on my reading and with the help of an old carpenter, to finish the curve of a beam or other pieces of wood, I didn’t used a sander but with we call that in french “une herminette” the result is not so smooth but more ancient. The technic that you are using to put your tiles is unknown for me, maybe is linked to the local way. In Dordogne, for a roof of a barn, separated by 20 to 24”, 6 to 8” oak square rafters are used. To support the tiles, we nail pine or chestnut planks.So, from bellow, we don’t see the tiles. I don’t known if you are aware that the region is infected by termites. To protect each piece of wood which is in contact with a wall or the ground, I drill a few holes and inject xylofene on a length of 20”. I have used my best english to congratulate you and admire the work you have done. Your talent (and your money) will save a beautiful 300 years old farm. Be aware that you’re the money that you are investing in this project will be commented (not always positively) by your french neighbors. Enjoy the view on the Pyrenees and le foie gras du Gers.

    I’ve been doing timber framing as a light hobby in America for 20 years. When learning timber framing, was taught by the old guy to offset the tenon hole to draw it in tighter. Was told to do it that way because it was smart and because the dead guys did it that way and their stuff is still standing.

    After the watching the first minute, I knew I was going to watch it all. I love the production quality, the pacing, the narration, the jokes, the doggo. I love how you respectfully restored an old barn (just think of the history) while incorporating modern tools to keep it sane. It’s so satisfying to watch you carve the big pieces of green oak. Super romantic setting. One of those videos that has me thinking: what am I doing with my life that is truly making me happy? Thanks for the inspiration!

    Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! My first thought was, " these guys are going to do a modern replacement...that sucks" Man was I wrong. Modern tools remaking a true to form original replacement!!!!!!! You guys just gave me my Christmas present!!! And you worked with your dad....a miracle for sure. I have worked with my dad on build projects!!!! NOPE!!! haha. But I would do anything to have him back now. Lost him 3 years ago. Precious times brother! I am a licensed contractor here in California,(C-39), and loved the tools. Your scarf joints were flawless. Those offsets make a huge difference. I could go on and on and on how much it means to me that people still do this kind of work...Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

    This was incredible, kudos to this father-son team. I'm 68 and I also have severe arthritis, it started when I was 18. You're right - you have to keep moving, stay active and stay engaged, no matter how bad the pain is. You keep that mindset, so that when you're my age you can stay active and get past the pain. Your Dad is awesome, both of you guys rock! I learned volumes from you, watching this process.

Great white population increasing in open waters outside Bay as temps rise, so who knows how many more years this sort of thing will feel safe for ppl.

      yep off setting the hole in the tenons for the pegs is standard practice in the US, as a matter of facts, I (continental European woodworker) learned about the so called 'drawboring' in Fine Woodworking magazine and applied it on my own workbench - works great!

    As a french I love seeing old buildings being respected. Too many french companies are destroying with cement and concrete a lot patrimonial or simply old buildings made of natural elements such as wood, stones, dirt. To me we need more companies in France working this way. I'm sick to see pvc and concrete and cement mortar all over the place.
    I'd just say that it's a shame you haven't used concrete made from lime to seal the tiles. Also instead of the cement concrete leveling and base you could have used a mix of hemp fibre/lime/sand concrete with loads of stones in there. Anyway,
    Happy to see foreigners doing a great job, you guys are excellent craftmen. Félicitation!
