In this video my wife Brooke and I build a very simple, very affordable cabin. With a simple single pitch roof and only 2 windows. While I was filming this building project so was Brooke. You can check out her first video featuring this cabin by clicking the link below. I'll see you on part 2

Anybody got a supplies/tools list? I'm a disabled vet on a fixed income and I wanna build this and live in. I think it would be therapeutic and it would help me financially. So if anybody knows exactly what I need let me know man I'd appreciate it

Looking at land (somewhere) conservative friendly with a potential partner. Can see putting several of these on a dozen acres especially with a well. The value of the land would instantly improve as well even if sold later as hunting property.

Just built my look alike cabin from his video instructions at 21, overweight and moving off the grid for the first time ever with my family. built this all by hand myself, I've hardly ever assembled a shelf together for a wall hang, but I did this and it costed me exactly $3,459.81 buying all of it together from a lowes in ohio last week. It's doable and there are always fixture shops or farm that sell this for much cheaper if needed. He got a lot of his stuff from the amish, and he built this around the time covid started, lumbar from imports had already started increasing. So you just need to find the right resources.

Brilliant. This video is EXACTLY what I've been needing to plan my tiny home/woodworking workshop. On another note, you've got a great narrator's voice and the two of you look and sound like you lead very happy and rewarding lives. Kudos to you both and thank you again.

I'll just order me a storage building and fix it from there with the price of lumber I probably can get one cheaper than I can build unless you have some leftover lumber or flats If you have a lot of land with wood you can just build it off the trees

Wouldn't you want to put rocks under each one of those foundation tabs? You leveled it without any weight on them and even just standing on it would change that, let alone a cabin.

I am sending a heartfelt thank you for this video - you gave me the confidence to build a sauna in my backyard this spring (still on-going as I am slow !) Your calm encouragement and "can - do" attitude using what's available gave me liberty to build it MY way just to suit ME and I have never operated power tools before. SO, THANK YOU for this video that was my template for a sauna using michigan white pine and white cedar !!!

I like the idea of a home way out in the woods or even desert but here in California because of urban sprawl, the nice wilderness areas are far and I'd be forced to get a vehicle (high transportation costs) and If I chose to live full time, I'd have to have 3 to 4 hour long journeys to get supplies (when I can currently just walk 5 minutes to a grocery store) or learn how to grow food (but it wouldn't be enough and still get things I can't just grow) and I wouldn't have running water, electricity and plumbing. So while it sounds nice, it probably wouldn't be for me and I'll just stick to metropolitan living.

What’s the rational to using nails instead of screws for the walls?
ModernUnit 4 дні тому
@Bushradical I’m very new to woodworking, starting small before building a cabin on some land in Europe in the future. Here people use nails but some are adamant about screws because of high winds in the winter. Might be taken for a ride because they might just want me to spend money on screws. But do nails help with the house settling?
Bushradical 4 дні тому
Ive been in construction for 25 years and I dont know where this love for screws comes from.....??? Ive never seen a crew of framers putting up T111 with screws.

I love that you make it all look simple, but your assumption that anyone can do this is very kind. I know how to hammer in a nail and cut in a straight line, but as soon as you mentioned the joist hardware things (and then bent them to fit your lumber!) you lost me completely.... most people do not have that skill set. You also know how to do the angles on the roof beam things and that is also not something that most people inherently know how to determine.
Bushradical 5 днів тому
Hey Julie. I think if you put your hands on a joist hanger and looked it over you'd get it right away. Same thing with the roof rafter.....get the walls plumb, and just mark the rafters like I did. Its always harder to "see it" in a video than to actually do-it.

Nothing is simple. I go by my father maxim, bless his Soul: "experience is the most expensive thing in life" and I would go even further to say that experience is priceless, you can't buy it anywhere. So if you have never done work like this my advice is watch the video and enjoy the sweet guitar background track, because I think it is well made and inspirational. But if you venture down the actual experience be prepared for sweat, blood and tears, especially if you have never done something like this. I just finished a wooden base for a 60 square meter building and I can tell you it was a hell of a challenge and made all kind of mistakes for which I was not warned in the video. But I did learn a lot and I am quite satisfied with the result. Now I am actually trying a smaller cabin, more like the size in the video. I have made a solid base (after learning what not to do from the previous effort) and I have now lots of questions about wall insulation especially against the heath as my land is in an area of Italy where Summers are torrid. Hopefully I will get some good advice on this channel. Well done with the video again.

Hallo I like this video I wanted to ask if I can use the same foundation for a 12 by 24 feet cabin
MikkelRS День тому
@Paul Gitonga I think it may depend on how compacted the ground is, how much rain/washout you get. Im no professional, but logic says if you put something 2-4ft in the ground, like concrete footings, and build on it, youll be fine.
Paul Gitonga

Would probably be better making a footing into the frost line, like 4ft deep concrete pads.

That's a beautiful piece of property. I bet your Grandpa would be stoked to see you using his saw, especially after you gave it some love the way you did. I noticed when you were nailing the joists/band to the pilings, the 6x6s were moving around on the footings. This might sound crazy, but you may want to consider anchoring the pilings (6x6s) to the concrete footings. I've seen similar sized structures get "shifted" in 50-60 mph winds. Once it comes off the foundation, it is never fun getting it back right. Either way, that's going to be a sweet place to get away to. Enjoy!

All my socks, undies, and a pair or two of jeans are washed with this in my balcony.

Thank you...I've been watching you and Brooke for a while now, and appreciate your wisdom. Can I build this over a basement? I'm looking for property further south and would do this but add a greenhouse, extending the high end of the roof sloping down the other way like you do on outhouses, and a basement only under the cabin half. I feel safer with storms having a basement, and cold storage. The south facing greenhouse to provide food and passive solar energy...and winter vitamin D for me. Please let me know any pros/cons for putting a basement under your plans...can it be done...what should be considered...? Love you guys...God's blessings to you and your family.
