A mobile saw and a big project for Heuboden

Alp Heuboden

It's a special summer on Alp Heuboden in the canton Glarus. The Tschudi family has moved a mobile saw to the Oberstafel. It will cut wood from their own forest for the big project: a complete rebuild in 2023/24. From the current chalet only the dairy, milk storage, and cheese cellar will remain. The rest will be torn down.

And this is what they build: New and separate barns for calves and pigs that fulfill the newest animal welfare requirements. A chalet with kitchen, living room, and bedrooms. This will give some privacy because currently there are two big rooms for the whole family. And a complete sanitary system that will finally replace the pit toilet.

In the old building only...
...the dairy, milk storage and cellar will remain
Machinery and the helicopter to transport wood
The pigs will get a new barn as well
