Alone Building an Off Grid LOG CABIN | Natural Wood Insulation

  • My Story:
    When I graduated high school I sought a big challenge in life. To alone, with only simple hand tools and raw power, build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish forest. I film everything myself and edit these videos so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do. I have no earlier experience in any of this, just a visualization of what I want to achieve and willpower to learn and improve everything necessary. So I enjoy reading good advice in the comments. Enjoy!

      @andy wagoner - Yeah, repeatedly! I mean more than one occasion. Have you watched all his videos since the beginning? I am amazed at what this kid has done and growing from boy to man, swinging that ax and other various tools building up all the muscles. And I love how he lives off the land as much as possible.
      One of my Grandmothers taught me that and I grew up on a farm where ALL the pre modern things were like wood burning stoves. She taught me how to cook without electricity, on campfires with flat stones and sticks/small branches, etc. Maybe she foresaw our future doom, major power outages or something.
      But I can definitely appreciate what he's doing and I can wait to see what he'll show us next. Personally, for his root cellar, I think he should have left one wall as bare earth and perhaps a bit deeper, like 10-12 feet down. Only a little ways more and it is WAY cooler! Ours on the farm was like that and even during the summer months down here in Florida, it was always very cool down there.
      😀👍

      Exactly how I am feeling right now Mr. Matthew! Talk about this young man's determination to complete this project? I wonder what we'll see him do once he's completed the dwelling. Perhaps in a year or two, he will want to add another room!
      I enjoy watching him work, although the Mother in me worries to death whenever I see him strip down to whatever and jump into the nearest freezing water! 🤨😲😳😬🥶🥶🥶

    I have done quite a bit of remodeling and adding additions on to homes. So I am familiar with many techniques you have used, and I just want to say, my girlfriend and I are very impressed with your quality of work. Watching you build this cabin has been fantastic. You are quite an amazing young man!! Keep up the great work. Hoping you will bring us along during another build or maybe adding an additional room. I do think you are nuts for the cold water bathing...lol.

    You have made great progress on the log cabin. It's a major achievement to build this all by yourself with only a tiny bit of help from your grandfather. I wonder if you are planning to live in the cabin full time when you are finished, or will it just be for holidays ? Loved it when you plunged into the ice cold water, I couldn't fancy doing that myself !

    Nice to see Alice again : ) I've never seen natural-wood insulation before but it seems like it is easy to work with and non-toxic? At first, I feared you were using latex foam insulation, which will rot and turn into little pea-sized balls. Love the updates and continued success. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Erik welcome back from your vacation. Your dog is super cool and adds a lot to the story (what is her/his name). I really like your drone shots because they give us a better understanding of the location and its beauty. A good friend of mine from Norway after the sauna rolls on the snow but you going into the ice cold stream is really hard core. Thanks for sharing!

I can't imagine how Swedish ancestors overcome the cold weather since I grew up in more tropical environment. Good job!

    Might be a bit late, but just as a suggestion, when insulating forest cabins it might be actually better to use PIR insulation as it does not attract mice. I'm just renovating an old log house in Sweden and have removed all rockwool insulation as there are endless little channels that mice have dug out over the years. And from what I know PIR insulation avoids this problem. But regardless great work, Best John

      @gurty gurtrude sounded like he was using polystyrene insulation towards the end, so he's probably trying to stay as natural as possible but making some adaptations if required.

    Hi Erik! May I also add it’s amazing what you have achieve thus far! Man handling those logs not for the faint hearted. But I must ask Surely long term the pond/ stream not going to be where u take a bath? Where is your drinking water going to come from? Underground pump?
    Do you encounter bears or wild cats in the forest? Your dogs are cool
    Will you speak to us in your video?
    This will be great.
    Will u ever speak to us in your videos?

    Eric, bravo! Both thumbs up! What I'd love to know, is how you come up with this idea to, let's say, seclude yourself in the forest wilderness?
    Throughout your life, when and what triggered your need of self-isolation? Idea os self-enrichment through nature? Books? Religion? Or, perhaps, social insecurities?

    I have been very impressed by your skill, endurance and motivation. Great to see old skills and knowledge handed down. A former chartered civil engineer and now a humble cabinet maker, I can identify with much of what you have done. One piece of advice above all is to look after your back. Having two prolapsed discs in mine, it limits what one can do and causes terrible pain and when younger, I thought I was invincible when I wasn't. Look after your back young man and it will look after you. Great work, you should be very proud of yourself😊

    I started watching you a few days ago, very impressed at your calm way of working, get the feel of the forest and how you work without power tools. I'm thinking you are sensible the way you make progress, doing things in the right order and cope by yourself. Then today you go and jump in a freezing pond! I have to rewind to see if there are bears or wolves around, but no, you actually decided to do it! Hmm, I suppose if you are crazy enough to chop up trees to live in, you are crazy enough to jump into ice. I'll watch to the end, should be more fun ahead.

    Did you notice the bark from your dog when getting out of the freezing water? I think maybe it was a bark of relief, as the little dog viewed that as a dangerous situation! And then the opening of the pores in the sauna, and the roll in the ice to close them back up...or that's my guess. It was another interesting episode! Take Care!

    Erik...ett stort TACK för att du delar med dig av denna fantastiska uppgift du tagit dig an❤️ Varje episod är ren njutning att ta del av, skogen, årstiderna, hantverket, hur du utvecklas i det, stillheten, din beslutsamhet, framstegen. Du har fått mig, som avskyr att titta på skärm, att njuta av varje episod och verkligen se fram emot nästa.
    Alltigenom underbart!
    Goda tankar ☀️

    Erik, was wondering what kind of insulation you are using in the roof outside. Never seen this before. It looks like good insulation. What is it.
    Fantastic job your doing there. Your an inspiration for many!

    Those people that have giving him thumbs down, why don’t you go out in the forest, build a better cabin then this young guy, in the same way and THEN come back and give him thumbs down? If you come across a video you don’t like, just move on. Nobody is forcing you to watch if you don’t like it.
    Me, I’m thinking Erik is doing a fantastic job!

      I got here cuz autoplay after watching some chinese grandpa build a bridge. Personally i dig it this log cabins beautiful. But sometimes autoplay gives you stuff you dont care about. Thumbs down people are probably just mad at the algorithm.

      I assume most of those people don't like the fact that only at some point during your watch do you realize, he infact has not spent a year out there ALONE. None the less, the videos are amazing, and his work is incredible. People just don't like being lied to i guess.
      Edit: This video title is different then the last one i watched. My bad he doesn't have the same click baity title. So in fact, I don't know why people hatin.

      Don't sweat it Monique - always going to be people who don't like things that everyone else does. It's all part of the rainbow of the world.

      He does get credit for a thumbs down the same as a thumbs up. One of the things DEclips does good at.

    Me as a Swede seing him pouring some hot liquid into that darn fine mug... "Nice mugg! Vänta kan man köpa den där? Svin billigt!" Just bought myself a nice cup!
    PS: Om du ser detta Erik! Hittade din kanal för kanske ett år sedan, kollade från första sekunderna till slutet på din "Building log cabin like our forefathers" och sen dess följt dig varje gång du lägger upp nytt! Riktigt bra! Härligt ihopklippta videos med inte massa onödig skit! Du kommer gå långt! Ha det gött nu! Från en Göteborgare!

    Great build! Why not using that same natural wood insulation instead of the grass you put between the logs?

    I would love a cabin like yours, but unfortunately I am way passed being able to build one lol you have some fantastic skills. I wish you would narrate more though 😊 and maybe tell us about yourself a bit more your hopes and dreams etc 😊👍😻🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

      @Ashley Here in Fla USA 2/3 of all women over 30 eat junk food and are wider than they are taller . They are all good human souls but need discipline and a month or two with Erik will slim them right down . They have love they only need discipline . Oh and the men here are bigger than all the pretty ladies are .
