THE Bivouac shacks were inspired by the traditional timber framing revival happening across the country and designed using the round wood timber framing technique. The term round wood is a reference to the wood used for the frames being left “in the round”, which not only cuts out the wasteful industrial process of squaring the timbers but also means frames can come from coppicing a tree that will continually regrow.
