Kierikki Stone Age Center was renovating and building new stone age style houses in summer 2012. This experiment was planned to get information how long would it take to get material for a timber framed stone age style house with stone age tools.

The experiment was designed and conducted by Kuttelo members Hanni Haapaniemi, Mikke Reinikainen, Jasse Tiilikkala, Matias Toivanen and Miika Vanhapiha. The tools used were made by Miika Vanhapiha. Pictures were taken by Jasse Tiilikkala and Hanni Haapaniemi.
