After: One Year Alone Building Log Cabin | Where Is The Door!!!

  • Am 16 Jan 2021 veröffentlicht
  • After the video "One Year Alone in Forests of Sweden | Building Log Cabin Like our Forefathers" a lot of you commented: "Where Is The Door!!!"
    Log Cabin Build EP 18: I open up for the door and more...
    I edited out a lot of the sawing as I guess you don't want to see that.
    If you're new:
    Hi! When I was 18 years old I ventured out alone with only a backpack full of simple hand tools to actualize my dream. Build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish wilderness. Just like our Forefathers did.
    I had no previous experience in building, gathering materials or filming. So I started studying myself the old arts and learning from my grandfather and mentor Åke Nilsson. I began to cut down trees and film with my phone, learning as I go. My project started full time once I graduated high school in summer 2019. I film everything myself and edit these videos so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do.

    I am 74 years old and I have watched a lot "log cabins" being built ( on tv). This is the first one that have watched (I know this is the second part) that is true to life. I love how he made the most difficult things look simple to do because he used his head instead of is back. I have to watch the second half tonight , can't wait.

      To the guys moaning that they think it's not off grid....even if it wasn't, can't you just appreciate the amount of time and effort this man is putting in to make this happen. He's doing an amazing job and hats off to him for that. His location is beautiful, and I'm feeling pretty envious mixed with respect for this man. Brilliant job. Enjoy your cabin.

      @George McFly it isn't off the grid though? It's not like he is hiding it.
      It's most likely on his own property, and his family likely owns the tractor, or somebody else who live nearby.
      This is his cabin he is building in undeveloped land that his family likely owns, and that's inspiring indeed. I also want to build things on my property, just like most people.
      Going off the grid entirely is very uncommon, almost everybody buys at least some things from towns and such, and there's nothing wrong with that, it allows things to be a little easier while still preserving the independent lifestyle.

      Not even headphones no ear buds. I’m guessing possibly to hear bears or other critters: being he’s all by himself , Paul Bunyan style . Eric is bad ass. Looks young enough for this to be his first time . It’s coming out perfect enough to be his 100th time .

      @weeardguy woah, I am really sorry to hear that. Over here, we can't buy land when the speculation gets too much, but we can when 'blood is in the street's' as my father likes to say.
      Maybe it'll be possible when the market crashes?
      Or perhaps it's too expensive even then.
      Honestly, if it wasn't for the hyper inflation going on, I would be confident I could buy a nice home for 200,000 dollars(probably lower than that, but at the least at that level of cash I could), but with the way things are, who knows( I am 16 by the way, so I don't own anything).
      Can your family not help you out maybe? My mother really helped my brother get a condo this last year for quite the steal(maybe that's a bit much, but it was certainly a good and reasonably priced buy), in an area where the value will never go down. He used his own money and all that, she just helped him find the place and all that at a time when everything was cheap, because of COVID-19 and the riots/protests driving the market down.
      Right now there are some really great rates on loans, I think my father was able to switch to a 3.5 percent on his old loan, which apparently is extremely good(I think that's what it is anyway, I just remember him saying it would save a lot of money in the long term).

    • oswald rabbit
      oswald rabbit Vor year

      @weeardguy oh that kind of sucks. In the US it is very possible, you would only need an acre in the right place and frankly one acre away from the cities is really cheap.
      Even 10-20 is pretty feasible, it just depends on where you buy.
      And that's in Texas where land is prime real estate, who knows about states where there's less people on the land.

      @Joshua A. Thank you! I watched a couple of videos on how to replace the Tee and open the PVC grue can (it was really hard to open that small can) on DEclips. Those videos were very helpful. After turning on the sprinkler system, I found two other broken spots. With the first experience from replacing the Tee, I was able to fix them with much ease. Later on, I had to dig out and replace two sprinkler heads. Finally the sprinkler system was working again, and the Vegetables are growing fast in the new garden boxes.

      Yeah. Music is just so much posing. Especially these days. Not that it hasn't always been.
      Basically, music sucks. It's just so much noise some egotistical jackass with an agenda is imposing on you.

    I really enjoyed watching this after a stressful workday.. It put things into perspective..Can't wait to see the finished result. What are your plans with it once you're finished, actually use it? Have your parents/family had the chance already to see it? They must be so proud. I don't know you and even I'm proud of you. You're the living proof that although the world is crumbling to pieces, there is a random 18y Swedish guy delivering hope. I was born and raised in a busy Belgian city and would give up everything to just move to a deserted forest in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately in this day and age you need money to do so.
    Keep being an inspiration! You're awesome!

    Just imagine the amount of footage he had to go through and edit to make this video... if it really took him a year to do this, which I 100% believe since he didn't use a single power tool... then he had weeks of raw video footage to review and cut down to a few hours for the series of these videos. that was probably more tedious than building the dang cabin itself.

    • Carla Wellbaum

    One of your videos just starting the cut down process hit my recommendations. Then this one did. Gotta give you a lot of credit to sticking with the old ways and not bringing in chainsaws and whatnot. For being your first time doing this, I think it's awesome. Just watching the process is very relaxing too. Nothing but the sounds of you working and nature. You gained a new sub bud. Looking forward to seeing the next video.

    Ok, I am in awe of what accuracy you have with both the hand axe and the two hander, but the groove you cut in the door and window frames blows my mind. Now, if you were a gnarled 40+ year old forester, I could understand all of this. But to be able to have this knowledge packed into your brain and to put it to use at your age----Lordy, I stand in AWE! Thanks for showing us old fogies that the skills haven't died out somewhere in this old world of ours.

      He improved a lot in the last year. If you saw his first video when he started chopping down a tree, his accuracy wasn't bad but average at best (his technique was good though, he definitely learned before he started).
      Now he can hit exactly at the centimeter he is aiming for. And no wonder after working over a year on the same stuff... probably with more work hours than a he'd have in a full time job.

Only one thing makes me wonder: Why to cut long trees, prepare long logs for the front wall only to cut half of it again for the door...wouldn´t it be more efficient, less exhausting and less wasting of resources and time to build the gab for the door from the beginning? Or would that destroy static and integrity of the entire structure? Jan

    It's nice to see "Alone in the Wilderness" is still alive an well. Dick Proenneke would be proud. This kid even included the same berry picking segment although he didn't make his harvester out of recycled gas cans. (I bet Dick would have loved a digital camera instead of dealing with reel after reel of film that needed to be developed.) Keep up the awesome work Erik. You are a true inspiration!

    Watched the two-hour build in complete awe and admiration and rushed over here to see how far you've gotten. Can't wait to see more build! Officially obsessed!! Sweden is a beautiful place. I've only been to Stockholm but would love to visit again and see more of Sweden.

    The last few days, whenever I feel sad or stressed I just think about you, this rondom Swedish guy who is peacefully building a cabin in the wilderness, and I instantly feel better! So thanks, you're videos are so interesting and calming it's awesome.

      Its because we evolved and mastered skills and material production to where 3 people can do everything in less than a year. Its a good thing he didn’t try a big house design because he would have had to add in the parts where he raises children to help finish.

      @Carlo Crispino material things are never permanent one way or the other, today as well as yesterday! Sure, always look back to where we came from, cause that's how you learn. On the fact taht we will go back to old times, I disagree. It's a sci-fy dystopian dream. You only move foward.

I've seen others doing the same thing but so far, I think you're the only that I haven't seen use any kind of power tools. You're amazing not to mention, good looking too... just being honest...

    I enjoyed every it of the first video I watch, the one year alone.... I sat and watched every second. I'm hooked. You should be proud of all the work you have done as you deserve it. Personally I enoyed watching everything you were doing in the last video. I felt I was right there watching. I had no idea how the logs high up were placed or how windows were formed. Now I know. Great videos!

    In the year that COVID has most of us just being lazy and sitting around learning which restaurants deliver to us, you've started making a log cabin. You're definitely moreambitious than a lot of people right now

      COVID made me start wood working. I bet a lot of people got really motivated by the extra time they've got from not being able to waste said time shopping, strolling the cities, eating in restaurants, going to the cinema and meeting people. Ok... meeting people is really not a waste of time, but I personally am really happy that the idle time got me to start a new, interesting and worthwhile hobby.

    Mr Grankvist I have a question and it is not meant to upset you or make you second guess but: When Dick Proenneke made his Alaskan cabin his first step was to cut the logs. But then he simply stopped work and left all the logs lying there, to "season the logs" and only when the winter had passed, did he start work again. Was there no need to season the logs? What is the secret if any?
