Building Log Cabin Roof Alone in Forest of Sweden

  • 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!

    I admire your work ethic. I built a log cabin a few years back. 16'x20' with an 8' overhanging loft in the front. I used tractors, chainblocks wheelbarrows, chainsaws and battery powered tools. Harvested all the logs of my farm and hand peeled them with a drawknife and ice chipper. Bought all the lumber and used recycled materials for doors and windows. Picked up some nice second hand tin for the roof and used soffit from another project (I built my own house). It might've been due to time restraints and having two very young kids but I couldnt imagine tackling this project with an axe, a hammer and freaking handsaw. Well done man, well done...

    Here's the deal, I'm Canadian, and when it comes to building structures that need insulation, well then .... THAT IS A MAJOR PRIORITY HERE IN CANADA. That said young man, from all the log cabin building videos here on DEclips, you are the ONLY builder that has done it right when it comes to the roof!
    It's incredible that others think that 2-inches of roof insulation will be enough in the middle of winter, along with others who are incorrectly insulation their roofs with leaky vapour barriers and insufficient R-Value insulation! It just blows my mind to no end !!!
    Some of these structure are so well solidly built, but then when it come to insulation the roofs, it's a loss-of-heat and moisture-catastrophe yet to happen! I just do not get it that how can someone put their hearts and souls into proudly building a structure.....AND TOTALLY FAIL IN SUPER CRITICAL FULL-FLOW ROOF VENTING DUCT WORK, ABSOLUTELY SEALED VAPOUR BARRIER PROTECTION AND EXTREME R-VALUE INSULATION GUIDELINES.
    That said son .... you are truly a MASTER by doing your 'homework' and effectively but most critically CORRECTLY build your roof within properly engineered blueprint guidelines! I personally endorse and confirm that your cabin will outlast and outperform most of the failed builds here on YT. The proof will definitely show the failures once condensation and overly perpetual heat loss factors kick in!
    Congratulations son .... I would hire you in a heartbeat !!!

      @Elie Bourget Hi Elie. Really appreciate your information and help. I saw him install the wire meshing. Are the styrofoam/plastic sheets he installed also help with the ventilation? They looked like they had raised grooves in them?
      Thanks again.

      @Mark Cummings Hi Mark. The roof venting is better seen in the previous video here declips.net/video/6UIXQy_M5eU/video.html
      Essentially some space is kept between the uppermost log of the walls and the rafters/fascia which is he places wire meshing in to prevent animal entry. But that opening allows air to move in and out beneath the roofing membrane so that any vapour moisture that gets into the roof assembly isn't sealed in to condense and rot. The air movement let's that moisture dry out on warmer days.

    • Mark Cummings
      Mark Cummings Vor 3 Monate

      @Elie Bourget May I ask you what constitutes the roof venting?
      And wis your comment on the toungue and groove boards, was that necessary compared to standard boards?
      Thanks in advance if you care to comment.

    Well a couple questions. I have been eagerly waiting for when you were coming out to do more work on your cabin. I just watched your working on the roof & I'm kind of wondering when you will be coming out to work some more on it. Are you planning on living here full time? When do you plan on doing a few things such as the door & windows on the cabin? Also, what do you plan to have in there? ....a living room, kitchen, bathroom or a dry cabin? Do you also plan on having any kind of lofts?
    Just a 68 yr. old curious woman from Tennessee (USA) living vicariously through all the people on here doing what I wish I had done when I was your age.

    I am so glad I found your videos. I have never seen such expertise and craftmanship in any builder much less someone of your age. You have expertise and ability not found in someone 2 or 3 times your age. The way you notched those logs to fit together as if they had been marked and notched by a laser guided computer and machine. You used a simple compass, marked them and then hand notched them so they fit together with exacting precision. And the weatherizing the boards with fire was incredible as well. You have had a great role model or more than one to teach you skills and traditions from previous generations. I can see you teaching your own son and/or daughter all of your life skills and continuing on these incredible traditions. From the sauna club to your bathing in the icy streams and lakes, your videos are mesmerizing. You are extremely handsome, intelligent, talented and carry yourself with class and dignity. You are focused, centered, dedicated, consistent and steadfast in everything you do. I know that whatever future path you embark upon will find you meeting and exceeding whatever goals you set for yourself. I know you are an environmentalist as well and would make a great leader in reminding others of the importance of taking care of the land and the environment around us. We all have to have clean air and water in order to survive and some, especially here in the United States, puts unbridled greed, ruthless Capitalism and CASH PROFITS ahead of anyone or anything else. Nothing wrong with running a business and earning profits but unbridled greed and ruthlessness is destroying lives. Whomever you give your heart to and marry or settle down with will be the luckiest person in this world. God Bless and Keep you, your family, animals, country and special place.

    I don’t know if you have considered this but I would strongly advise you lay a DPM membrane in your solum. And finish with 50mm of weak concrete or hot tar, otherwise the damp soil will cause dry rot to the underside of your floor joists, also make sure you install adequate through ventilation to remove moist air, and lastly install single cell solid insulation between the joists. Great video, keep it up.

    You are a wise man! Perseverance! The production process also purifies the soul and handles things quietly and calmly! Thank you for the production process, it is artistic and beautiful to enjoy! Excellent works of art, I shared and reposted them,

    I love that you recycled old terracotta tiles for the roof. They are made of clay that could last a century, so there is no need to throw them away just because they don’t look pristine anymore. 👍🏼

    Any father would love to have a child like that, this boy is a blessing.

      Undeniably, any parent would be proud of a child like this. Hardworking, determined, independent. To do such a project successfully is only possible if you have certain great qualities. You wouldn’t love for your child to be lazy and useless would you?

      Care to expand on that?! Why wouldn’t a father love to have a child that was *not* like that, etc?!

    Wauw dit is prachtig! Observing your work really makes me think along with every hard work's step. Very relaxing. And sometimes I wonder, why can I smell the wood and forest while watching :)

    Only one thin wool blanket? Here in Melbourne Australia, it is winter. So for those who live without heating, layers of blankets are essential. 6.1oC outside right now, windchill. 09 : 45 Tuesday 24 August 2021.
    Surviving the cold means layers.
    Good series. I really like the nature. Thumbs up given.
    PS At the very end, plant some trees! Dedicate some to the countries where you have followers, eg Australia. Eucalyptus for extra Aussie value. :)

    Hi Erik! What about a small cellar within the cabin?
    I think it would be great also as food or tools store :)

    A year or so ago, I could not have even imagined the work that was being done. What's more, the surprise is that it's not a work in progress, it's a work in progress that you're really trying to live. You are working to prove that you are not just here for performance or entertainment. The soul of Sweden!

    I was wondering if you were going to trim the logs at the end of the roof. It's looking really good, like a nice cabin to get away.

    Hi Erik, what you do is a very good example for every body ; I have a question, what is the exact name , or reference, of the saw that you prepare and use from time 31:00 ?
