Swedish Winter Log Cabin, Building a Snow Cover | 8.0 | - One Man Traditional Log Cabin series

  • Am 30 Dez 2019 veröffentlicht
  • Episode 8.0 on the traditional log cabin series!
    I just graduated from high school and want a big challenge in life. I decided that I alone with only hand tools and raw power was going to build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand in the Swedish forest.
    In this episode I am timbering in the last log for winter and then building a snow cover for the log cabin build.

    Amazing video series. I was questioning myself about the feasibility of a project like that here in Sweden. As a Canadian now living in Stockholm it's great to see that you don't have to go far away in the north of the country to be able to do a project like this.

    my grandfather, my father and one of my brothers were carpenters, with a 3 and 4 year apprentyship, building mainly Swiss chalets. They would be proud to see, what you are undertaking, all by yourself. I can’t wait to see the finished project….love your determination. A SWISS, living in the USA.

    I have lived and worked in a similar environment, here on the extreme tip of the north shore of lake Superior. The whole area was settled in part by Norwegian and Swedish immigrants. We work on construction all though the winter. If the weather is good, a lot of us prefer it to summer, no bugs, especially black flies. You dress warm, take extra care, and, you learn how to cope with the extreme cold. Anything above 10 degrees above is considered balmy.

    If I had the opportunity and if you asked help with this awesome built with simple tools. I would definitely say yes. This is probably the best way of spending time of your life.

    Hopefully one day I can move to Sweden (now living in the Netherlands) maybe even build a log cabin. Until that day your videos are a great inspiration I guess not only for me but for a lot of people. Keep doing what you love doing in live.
