Bousillage "Bousillage" in south Louisiana is a mixture of clay earth and retted Spanish moss, but in the Upper Mississippi River Valley and Canada contains straw, grass or hair, used to fill in the panels in poteaux-sur-sol, poteaux-en-terre, and half-timbered framing (called "colombage" in French). This was a technique used in French Louisiana by colonists from the 18th to 19th centuries. In France the framing was typically in-filled between the post with brick (briquette-entre-poteaux), stone and mud (Pierrotage) or bousillage. There was no stone in south Louisiana, and bricks were not being made during early colonial times. The colonist picked up on a technique that the Native Americans were using to build their wattle and daub structures, and that was heavy clay soil and retted Spanish moss as the binder. Split sticks or staves, known as "barreaux", "rabbits" or "batons" were used as rungs between the upright post. They were shaped to fit at an angle and hammered into place without the use of nails.
Bousillage Bousillage is made by layering a "taché" (hole in the ground) with mud and moss and adding water. Then "tacherons" (barefoot men) worked the mixture into a mortar. "Torchis" (bousillage shaped like a bread dough loaf) are hung over the barreaux being compacted as placed one next to the other. The finished wall would have been either lime washed or covered with lime plaster. The plaster contains animal hair as a binder.
Bousillage Bousillage (bouzillage, bousille, bouzille) is a mixture of clay and grass or other fiberous substances used as the infill (chinking) between the timbers of a half-timbered building. This material was commonly used by 18th century French colonial settlers in the historical New France region of the United States and is similar to the material cob and adobe. In French "torchis" has the same meaning or the meaning of a loaf of this material.
Old Spanish Fort (Pascagoula, Mississippi) The "Old Spanish Fort" was not really a fort. Instead, it was a one-story, three-room structure that measured 37 feet (11.3 meters) in width and 62.25 feet (18.97 meters) in length. Framing walls were 18 inches (45.7 centimeters) thick. The building is constructed of longleaf pine framing, with walls of oyster-shell concrete in the oldest construction and with bousillage of clay and Spanish moss in the western and most recent addition. Dendrochronology dates the center tabby room to 1757 and the east tabby addition to 1762; and while no samples could be determined in the western bousillage addition, construction techniques and tool marks date the addition to 1820.
Alexis LaTour House The Alexis LaTour House also known as, "Old Homeplace; Guillory Homeplace is an historic house in Ville Platte, Louisiana. The oldest portion of the house was built in 1835 by Alexis LaTour. The house was expanded in 1837. The original house was a -story Creole cottage of bousillage construction that was one room wide and two rooms deep and had a front gallery. The 1837 expansion added two rooms and a central hall. Details of the house, including an exterior staircase, bousillage construction, and beaded clapboarding, ceiling beams, and ceiling boards were common in traditional Creole architecture. Both the older and the newer part of the house had unusual mantels. The older mantel featured cove moldings, panels, and a large central lozenge. The other mantels in the house were more traditional but were still unusual.
Timber framing Other infills include "bousillage", fired brick, unfired brick such as adobe or mudbrick, stones sometimes called "pierrotage", planks as in the German "standerbohlenbau", timbers as in "standerblockbau", or rarely cob without any wooden support. The wall surfaces on the interior were often “ceiled” with wainscoting and plastered for warmth and appearance.
Old Mobile Site Among other items discovered at the site included construction materials (fired wall clay known as bousillage, roof tiles), dishware (French faience, Mexican majolica, Chinese porcelain, kettle fragments, wine glasses), weaponry (French gun flints, lead shot, gun and sword parts), clothing remnants (brass and silver buttons, shoe and clothing buckles), currency (French and Spanish coins, glass trade beads),
Timber framing Poteaux-en-terre (posts in ground) is a type of timber framing with the many vertical posts or studs buried in the ground called post in ground or "earthfast" construction. The tops of the posts are joined to a beam and the spaces between are filled in with natural materials called bousillage or pierrotage.
Post in ground In the historical region of New France "poteaux-en-terre" was a historic style of earthfast timber framing. This method is very similar to poteaux-sur-sol but for the "boulin" (hewn posts) planted in the ground rather than landing on a sill plate. The spaces between the boulin were filled with bousillage (reinforced mud) or pierrotage (stones and mud).
