Answer: a chalet-style construction technique.

A stacked solid wood construction is one of the four wooden construction techniques with the wooden frame, the beam posts and the solid wood panels. It is the oldest technique. It is mainly used in mountainous regions to build chalets. This technique consists of mounting solid wood walls by stacking pieces of wood horizontally. These pieces of wood are not always the same.
