    Can we just take a second to enjoy the time he spent setting up the camera angles? It would’ve taken him probably half the time to finish this project, but instead he chose to make some nice, satisfying content for us. What a guy.

    *The fact that you just woke up one morning and built this with your own hands and no help, it’s absolutely astounding!* Fascinating to watch you work! You should be very proud, it would take me 100 years to figure out something like this 😅🤔😊

      @Anthony framers are in high demand at the moment I'm sure you could find a job for a framing company, labour around for a couple months then learn some framing skills it's pretty fun I've been doing it for the past year and a half now. It's a dangerous job and it's pretty hard work so you might not want to make a career out of it

      Winter forest - booming, like shots, croaking crows, snow from a spruce branch that fell by the collar, tracks in which the bottom is not visible, steam from wet mittens and parallel, now and then intersecting curves of ski tracks; spring forest - the smell of black, still frozen earth, flowing in all directions, choking with melt water, a stream, a thin white strip of skin blue from the cold between a sweater and jeans, and on it large pimples that can only be melted with lips; summer forest - hot drops of golden resin on copper bark, hair smelling of barbecue smoke, a white, daisy-covered sundress stained with dry red wine and a tickling pine needle that you can’t get at all if you don’t unbutton two thousand small, like ladybugs, buttons , rapidly spreading under the fingers along the back and chest.

    This is helping me so much! I'm planing to build a 20x20 cabin with no running water and no electricity. (We might have a generator and a thing outside that holds water but not that much) Our land that we own also gets tons of snow, but when it melts the ground turns into clay

    This is the key to building your dream home. You start with a quick, decent sized shelter to base in during harsh weather. Then you build what you want long term, if needed, and turn the base shelter into a workshop, shed, or whatever you feel it serves as.

    It must have been the most amazing feeling when you finally get to sit down and enjoy all your hard work you done , knowing that this is me who has built my cabin !! Seriously , men who can build houses , cabins , it’s so so fascinating .. I just love the fact that you build your own home , where now you can enjoy this cosy Home ! Nothing fancy ? It’s fancy to me because it’s been build by your own hands , putting all the effort into it ! I think this is the fanciest home I have seen because nothing can be more precious than living out in the nature ! In winter it gets even more cosy ! Amazing job !!

      You would probably love the video of Dick Proenneke building his log cabin in alaska, very similar style of video to this. Its called "Alone in the wilderness" not sure if its on TheXvid or not but i Highly recommend it

    • Luke W
      Luke W 5 months ago +11

      @InspirationNation It is. Unfortunately in school we don't learn any of the hands on stuff. I can tell you all about the tensile and compressive strength of wood or any other material and how thick a beam needs to be to support "x" amount of weight, but the actual installation of the beam and how to use all of the tools is not covered. Most engineers are "self taught" in the hands on portion because we like it and that's what drove us to engineering in the first place, but there is no guarantee an engineer will know how to use every tool or know the tricks of the carpentry trade. I really like thermodynamic systems, and that's what I specialize in (think rockets and internal combustion engines) so other than the basics, woodworking is a very foreign topic to me. I know I could learn it, and that's part of the reason I'm watching these videos. To learn tips and tricks and expand my knowledge!

    Did you use any protective treatment for bottom post's you insert in the ground?
    How many days did u have spent on this project?
    I love how modest u have been in tools. Nothing too fancy.

    Dave, I've always wondered with corrugated metal do you keep bugs and birds etc out from underneath of it on the ends? I can see how you did it on the sides, but what do you do on the ends?

    Enjoying your cabin builds, being an amateur at this I have definitely learned a lot. I was going to purchase a Derksen building to finish off on my land but you and your wife have inspired us to build our own off grid cabin. Thankful for both of your channels keep the vids coming.

      @Andrew F. We are actually working on finishing a small concrete home that's been in the works for almost two years longer than what we had planned for due to the material shortages and other "life happens" reasons, so I totally agree that it's much much easier to do the planning than it is the actual building. I have no misconceptions about that haha

  • Billy Kaufman

    I have always seen myself as one with a short attention span. I always seem to skip around videos to see parts I want to and what not. But there is something about documenting the outdoors, and building something with ones hands, that just takes me to a different place. I watched the whole 40 minute videos without thinking about clicking off and watching something else once. I would like to thank you for the incredible job that you’ve done on the cabin, and on the video. Your cinematography is outstanding. The subtle music in the background, and the cinematic shots of the nature around you really tie the whole thing together. Also the occasional story here and there are really something special. I hope the cabin serves you well and houses many good memories.

    AWESOME PROJECT!!!! There's nothing more gratifying than building or creating something on your own. I have a humble question, when building these projects and home construction in general, why are nails preferably used instead of wood or decking screws to fasten or attached the pieces to one another??? I know that the nails are cheaper than the screws but aren't the screws better???

Even if the videos are as simple as cooking, hiking, or any simple subject, just make more videos.

    So, I know it may sound weird, but me and my father have been just going in the woods and making cabins for anyone to use at least a few times every year for the last 3 years. It’s hard work, but also a good bond for me and him, as well as the community. We don’t know much, but we do know one thing: this country needs more generosity!

    Dude I loved watching you. My father-in law talked me into building a 1500 sq ft ranch in 1985. He taught me all I needed to know. I went on to build a 3 stall garage with a beautiful wood shop. I still love the work but at 68 I can't work those 12 to 13 hour days anymore. Your talents will provide you with a very rewarding life. Don't forget. Jesus was a carpenter!!!
