How To Build A Pithouse In Several Easy? Steps
Pithouses are shallow “pits” or excavations made in the soil and overlain by a roof of wood and earth. They occur in various cultures throughout prehistory. In order to better understand pithouses in the Fremont culture, the Prehistoric Museum is reconstructing one in which to use as a test-bed for various hypotheses and to answer various questions, such as what is the seasonal variability of inside temperature as compared with the outside air temperature. How much heat (in BTUs) is needed in the dead of winter to keep the pithouse in the upper 40s? How important is the placement of the air vent to air circulation? Check out the photos on Flickr
