  • Episode 20 on the traditional log cabin build series!
    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!
    In this episode I am fitting the ceiling into the log cabin. The boards edges had to be debarked and rounded off to give a good look, this was probably the most time consuming. All the lumber is from own forest and was sawed by a "neighbour", as shown in the end. I was considering hand splitting small logs, but my grandfather highly advised me to this method.

    Fun Story: The night at 15:15 I had been working all day and it was becoming night as usual. But right then a heavy storm broke lose like a whip and threw my tarp off. The rain was poring down on the roof and I had only my headlamp to navigate in the dark. I found my tarp and started climbing up the wet and slippery build though the storm, holding the tarp in one hand. I fought to get the whole tarp over but the storm kept launching it away. On the third attempt I managed to secure the tarp. I was climbing down from the top and the second I came down my flashlights battery died. It was completely pitch dark with the storm covering the night sky. Luckily my backpack wasn't far away and I managed to feel my way towards it and grab a new battery. :)
    It's quite funny now to think if the battery had died minutes earlier. Then I would've been stuck on the very top of the build in the pitch black. No phone in the middle of the forest, having to sitt through the night storm soaking wet. good times
    Now I always carry an extra battery in my pocket.

      Watching you work actually makes me tired, you are a machine, very impressed. Sometimes I think "that would be cool to do" then I remember I'm 60 and not you. Besides, wife won't let me use the chainsaw anymore after trying to see what my tendons in my hand look like. ;)

    my mental health is very bad and these videos really help me. they remind me that the world is big and people are capable of doing anything they set their mind to. the effort used from designing to building to FILMING AND UPLOADING the entire project is just amazing and i cannot even fathom that someone would be so generous to share something like this with the rest of the world. thank you!

      I don't know your age, or the ages of the others replying. But, I learned early in life that NO situation lasts forever. No misery and no joy. Life is constantly changing. If y'all ever get to the point where you think you can't take it anymore, just wait a short time and your situation will change for the better. Live enough of these times and it will make you a tough old bird. 😉

      @Stewart J i still do shit for attention because humans are social creatures
      and in actuality whenever a teenager is self harming for attention it’s more likely a call for relationship with for instance neglectful parents or friends
      the need for attention isn’t a negative thing and it’s entirely what builds relationship
      needing deeper relationship is not a bad thing and some teens don’t know how to get it so they resort to things that are harmful
      judging those behaviours won’t help them heal at all it perpetuates them

    Erik, I'm a 78-year-old, and I built my 1st house with power tools, mostly by myself, in my early 20's, it was hard work. What you have done, is so kool, you can be proud of yourself. I don,t think I would have tried to build a Log Cabin in those days, many kudo's to you sir. Keep up the good work. "Now get back to work son!"

      Is your house still standing, sir? I'd love to see a picture. My mom built an adobe home with Grandpa, in old Arizona.

    I must say that after quite a few years on construction sites and being an outdoorsy type, this is really impressive. The amount of patience, mental fortitude, stubbornness (the good kind :) ), humility, and self-esteem to do something like this, especially right after secondary school, is truly amazing. I hope you can take all your skill and strength with you and apply them in your later life. II am not easily impressed, but you, young sir, have indeed impressed me greatly. I wish you all the success in your life. Oh yeah and mad respect to your grandfather!!! He's the man.

    Eriks work is very inspiring. 2 weeks ago I lost my cabin to a massive fire in the forest. It was a 94 year old board and batten. I always wished to rebuild with logs. Now I am going to do it. I am doing my homework, watching Erik has helped alot. I will not use any power tools to build. It will be off grid. Next spring I will begin with the foundation. Logs will be cedar. Thanks again Erik.

    You are doing fantastic job, and learning a skill that could become your career, there are very few young people that are learning skills and techniques passed down through generations of home building. Your skills as a cameraman, editor are superb. Super tech to record and witness skills from the past. So great to see a young person so dedicated and determined. My husband and I lived many years in northern British Columbia, and we enjoyed the difficult work of making an old cabin that was going to be just our summer cabin, but became our full time home. I loved to hear the hammer and axe working on the wood. Echoing in the sound of the wind in the trees. It was a lovely life for the strong and young. This was many years ago, and all the hard work was a wealth of experiences. Looking forward to your continued work on your cabin. My congratulations and admiration from British Columbia, Canada.🇨🇦

    Fun Fact: The term 'Dead as a Door Nail' has an interesting origin.
    In the olden days, nails were extremely valuable because each one was hand made. So much so, that when people moved, they would often burn the house down and shift through the ashes to recover the nails and take them to be used again. (Hence barn burning parties. Typically farmers would celebrate success by burning the old barn to build a new bigger one.)
    Door nails had to be extra secure and withstand a ton of abuse, so when you installed a door, you would hammer a nail through to the other side, bend it over onto itself and smash it down. This mangled the nail and any attempt to straighten it would work harden and break it. Hence, you could only use them once. It was a dead nail. Not worth retrieving, cant be fixed or remade. It has to be completely melted and reforged.
    Fun, huh? Life sure was shitty and difficult and horrible before you could just order a pneumatic airgun off Amazon and a bulk pack of a thousand nails...

      Oh my dad told me that when I was a kid. I completely forgot about that. He had turned an old mill into a house and had an antique shop and a wood shop where Hu beuit old styled furniture by hand. He was a brick Mason for work but those were what he had on the first floor.....well that was my step dad anyways. He just recently passed. I feel awful for my mom.

      @MACDADDY760 Not in the original colonies where mass manufacturing was pioneered by a program of the federal government initiated by the Madison administration in 1812, A huge mistake, which has yet to be remedied, was to overlook the need to incorporate a sub-program to assist every state to develop appropriate industries. In the South, such a program would provided freed slaves and many others with employment and a basis for sustainable regional and national economic development. Most of the United States need such a program today.

    Erik, a question for you. Will the notches along the logs for your roofing planks be a common place for water build-up? If so, what's the plan for keeping the logs from rotting?

    This has made me appreciate architecture in a new way. Your whole build is amazing! I want to build my own cabin now. I hope the first night in the cabin was triumphant

    Very interested in how you will finish inside and the porch. I initially expected you to build a stone fireplace.

    Thanks and welcome back, that ceiling looks fantastic. I am always amazed at your techniques and knowledge of what you are doing. You are definitely a master craftsman. Something that is extremely rare in people of your age today. 🇨🇦🇨🇦

    Thank you so much for showing us where the planks came from...I was indeed wondering 😄 " I am fitting the ceiling into the log cabin. The boards edges had to be debarked and rounded off to give a good look, this was probably the most time consuming" : This speaks volumes to me about finishing well in a creative process. And this "the second I came down my flashlights battery died." hints to me the age-old power of "Providence". Well done, Erik, and thank you for sharing this journey of vision and diligence with the world! We applaud you 👏 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    Has this cabin been completed as of yet?
    Will you be living in it full time? If so will you have a loft for sleeping, a stone fireplace (stove) for heating and cooking?
    New sub I shared it too.

    Maybe I missed something but I always wondered if the whole cabin is made with untreated wood?
    How do you prevent it from rotting?

    Круто👍молодец! Так здорово умеет работать топором! И еще очень нравится, что нет никакой музыки, а только живые звуки леса и стройки! Удачи тебе и скорейшего новоселья🤗

    I've been eagerly looking forward to this next sharing of your adventure. You have not disappointed me. Wow, what progress you have made. I wish I was young again and had your skills so I could do this same thing. I envy you and your skills. Thank You so much for sharing this. Even though I'll probably not ever use these skills, I have learned a lot from watching you. Thank You again for sharing this. I'm in the "Hillbilly part of the Missouri Ozarks in the U.S.A. I see by the "Likes" in this video that you have a great following. Way to go !!!!!!

    What a satisfying feeling it must've been to lay down in "The cabin you built with your own 2 hands". Congratulations! Storms can be a bit scary for sure! Be careful please!

    You have SO much initiative.
    Is this patronising to say I'm proud of you!
    No one young ever does this. Well done. Really.
    My teenage daughter fell asleep to your cutting. Not bored, relaxed. She doesn't relax easily and almost never falls asleep when visiting.... She's almost 18, in year 12. An overachiever but lives family and to chill.
