#logcabin #bushcraft #offgrid #survival
One man leaves the city life behind to build a cheap off grid log cabin and homestead in the Canadian wilderness, including a log home, an outdoor kitchen, an outhouse, a woodshed and a sauna bathhouse. Building mostly with hand tools, Shawn James harvests building materials from the forests north of Toronto, Canada and crafts them into functional tools and shelters using traditional woodworking tools and methods. He practices bushcraft and survival skills every day, including fire starting, tree identification and harvesting, wild edible foraging, fishing, hunting, camping in the summer and winter, travelling by canoe and snowshoe, navigation and water collection and purification.
Continue watching in 2019 as Shawn finishes the sauna, plants a forest garden for fruit and vegetables, builds an underground root cellar, ice house and cheese cave, a timber frame workshop and a remote hunt camp closer to fish and game.

wondering how long the bottom logs survived, they would rot pretty fast behind directly on the ground.

I live in the UK, the deepest remote wilderness is 5 miles from the nearest main road lol. And if you built a cabin in the woods, the local council and police would be there the next day asking who the fuck you think your are to claim that bit of land as well as being arrested for all the tree's you cut down lol.

The video is good. Just wondering who did video recording when the guy was alone with his dog. I can understand if it was on his own like he set up a camera in auto mode and then got to the activity itself, but in some scenes, it would be really hard to organize such auto recording...

A quel titre cet homme de 40 à 50 ans joue le jeu du Sponsor ? Ce n'est pas un homme des bois Certes, mais fin Constructeur ? Porque va t'il à la chasse ? Pourquoi encore tuer des animaux sauvages alors que ses matières premières pour la construction de son terrain, doit-il se déplacer en ville, pourquoi ne pas aller à la supérette faire ses courses au lieu de tuer ce bel environnement animal ? Le principe de l'homme C'est TUER TUER SANS SOIF, JUSQU'A PLUS FAIM !

It’s hard to imagine that humans millions and millions of years ago had to do this but with no clothes, no camera, no ideas of how to build shelter and keep them selves warm, they just had to figure it out on there own with no path

This is awesome! Amazing skills my guy. Great job. This is something I've always wanted to do and learn. Everything this guy was doing over the years. I love every bit of it. Working with wood and mother nature. Away from the hussle and bussle, off grid! I watched an old video just like this of a older man staying in the wilderness in Alaska a long time ago. Except he had no drones for such nice camera shot lol. But it was the same video just different place and time!

What a beautiful log cabin that doubles as off-grid living. You both look very comfortable, living and making your way through a list you obviously must have. Super cool way the dog cleans itself. Just rub in the snow. No fleas I bet but fish jump out of the ice for you. Towards the end, your cabin looks bigger. You very clever man, living in nature and still being constructive. Copper sink no less. It takes 30days for germs to survive on copper. A great investment.
