What are the implications of Post-and-Plank construction in a contemporary context? This proven construction method was prior, to the 17th century, at the centre of vernacular building culture in the Scandinavian region in various adaptations. In southern Scandinavia, as focused on in this article, the use of Post-and-Plank was abandoned as a result of deforestation between the early Middle Ages and the end of the enlightenment. However, some of these buildings, typically barns and farmhouses, are still found today. By studying the most noticeable Post-and-Plank buildings still in existence today in Denmark, and learning the secret to their 350-year lifespan, we attempt to construct a Post-and-Plank house using modern machinery, based on the inherent principles of the historical construction method.
