Stolpunderreden - en förbisedd konstruktionsdel
Stilt structures on raised storage buildings
This thesis attempts to build knowledge regarding variations in joinery and construction processes of stilt structures on raised storage buildings in Sweden. The research also focuses on potential reconstruction methods for future conservation measures. The stilt constructions, known in Swedish as stolpunderred, are defined in this work as a four-sided sill frame, stilts, and the cloven logs above the stilts. A field study of 8 buildings was conducted detailing dimensions of stilt structures and the variations in their construction. The data was collected in the form of field notes and photographs. The field work has been interpreted into 3d models of potential construction solutions that have then been tested through physical reconstructions. The results of the research are seven 3D models of potential structural solutions of stilted construction as well as two physical reconstructions. The two reconstructions comprise of sill logs with four differing variations of stilts in each corner, as well as a reconstruction of a sill log structure with a single stilt variation. The process of reconstruction was recorded through photography and a short description of the procedure. The results provide a detailed record of eight stilt structures, possible variations of joinery, along with a viable solution for potential reconstruction efforts in the future.
