  • 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!

    in addition to his incredible woodsman and carpentry skills, it is easy to forget he is setting up all of the video shots as well. He makes it seem as though some hidden film crew is taking all of this video. Think of the time that it takes just to set up a seven second piece of video. What an awesome, talented young man.

      I think the guy in the survivor man show did it. I know there was one who had a crew and one did not.

      !f you like the video what does it matter if he hired a videographer to light, film and produce it? He’s an “awesome , talented young man” even without us thinking he did the entire project with a bag ‘o tools and his trusty sidekick dog. Please!

      @aarswft He lets the camera run most of the time, and has had to edit a lot of stuff to reduce the time. I think keeping the mind occupied with down time to be creative on another level is a good balance. Can you imagine going none stop like he does. I can, because I have. I like these videos not only for his skills, but that there is no talking.

    I think Erik was getting worried that having an insulated floor AND a roof might make him weaken! So he went to sleep in a cave, just to keep it real :-) I love these videos so much.

    My father was a master carpenter...and he would have been AMAZED at what a beautiful cabin you built, your precision with an axe and the entire way you went about it. He was a man who handled tools the very same way, it was incredible to watch him build something on his land that I'd not seen because he did huge commercial construction jobs so to finally get to witness his talent was such a gift....and Erik has so much of what it takes to be the absolute master of builders. Great job for such a young man.

      @Karin [CAR-in, not CARE-en] hmmm interesting perspective. Personally I own a large amount of land and have fenced it all off. I live off my land with animals, harvest, and used the trees to build and warm my home. I wouldn’t want people on my property at all. Guess it’s just different here.

      Karin [CAR-in, not CARE-en] Vor 8 Monate +23

      Sweden has the freedom to roam enshrined in its constitution, meaning you can go anywhere, except for what's deemed the "personal zone" next to a house (the personal zone can be up to 70 m/230 ft around, so good for keeping your actual house and front yard private). You can go anywhere, forage respectfully (anywhere that's not obviously cultivated), have access to any body of water to fish or swim... and it means a lot of Swedish kids are given the opportunities to spend enough time in the wild to actually learn skills like these. Because when you can run free in the woods and build play huts with your friends, at some point, building your own cabin just becomes the next logical step.
      I wish the US had more laws like it, rather than focusing on the one individual's right to tell everyone else to buzz off. It made me really sad when I moved here, that the access to nature is made into a privilege rather than a right. And it's not a diss on the US, btw, just an observation on how laws shape the world.

    Thank you Eric for the latest update. Your resourcefulness when using a limited amount of modern tools is astounding. What I noticed most about the floor was how straight it was from front-to-back. This is a challenge with 21st century tools and properly poured foundation. Congratulations on your hard work. Always good to see your dog (as he looks a bit like my chocolate labrador retriever) and give Alice a hug for all of us who miss her.

      I think when he started building the cabin he was doing all this for the first time. He definitely seemed less confident back then as well.
      But his carpentry skill seems to reflect years of experience. I've been doing it for a few years and I'm envious of his capabilities. He's either a virtuoso learner or must have trained under a skilled craftsman.

    It was really nice seeing you lay that wooden floor. It makes the cabin kind of inhabitable from now on. It really hit the spot. (my best translation of "pricken över i" so far ;)). I usually also pick the berries and mushrooms the forest offers; that's a favour of the nature. Unfortunately I live in Älvkarleby, northern Uppland where the downfall of cesium from the Tjernobyl "accident" was among the worst in Sweden. Considering the first half life of cesium is well passed due I eat small portions two or three times a year. I also boil them throwing away that first water before frying them. Calculating the risks compared to e.g. air plane crews, x-ray personell and others, eating it two or three times a year should make no difference at all. The lingon-berries and blueberries are fine though. They don't mistake the cesium for being one of the elements they need as much as the mushrooms seem to do.

    I am very impressed with your videos and especially your commitment to doing everything as the pioneers would have done. I am wondering how you draw into yourself to get the power to stick to it. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I have never really finished anything in my life. I always find a way to justify moving on to something else so I would really love to know your thoughts on staying committed to the project.

    It’s so much fun watching your GSP while you work. Such a curious and lively breed. Your videos inspire me to spend more time with mine just “existing” in the woods. Thank you.

    Just awesome skills, that is the tightest tongue and groove fit I have ever seen, it looks like one entire piece. I could not imagine what it takes to film this in the woods, in that terrain alone. Quite a talented young man, to say the least, I`ll keep watching from USA Michigan.

    Amazing attention to detail added to a desire for perfection make this very soothing to watch! A skilled craftsman indeed. I especially enjoy that he doesn’t waste viewers time with a bunch of unnecessary chatting. Love it! Keep up the good work. Very smart building his fire where it will heat up the rocks around him in the cave. Very smart young man.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us Erik. I must say I have followed you from the beginning and I am really astounded at all you have done. You are amazing the way you work with all your tools and the knowledge you have at your young age as how to build your cabin is just amazing. I enjoy your wanderings around the forest with your dog. Have a lovely day. By the way Happy New Year for 2022 .

    I love these videos! So cool to watch you build a log cabin piece by piece. I guess this video is more about building the floor and foraging for mushrooms… did I miss the hunting part?

    Every time I watch your videos I'll dream of sitting in a cabin like this, in the middle of nowhere, handwaving baskets and sewing clothing. It's so perfectly idyllic.
    Also: 1:20 that cow is like: 'you're stealing my damn bedding! '

    Using the floor of the cabin as a time capsule for your magnificent achievement was really, _really_ clever.

    Is there nothing that this young man can't do? He laid a perfect floor in his beautiful hand built cabin, then goes for a casual walk in the forest picking up his dinner as he goes. Then cooks dried frog and squirrel (sic) after first throwing the odd twig away. You are a very impressive person Erik.

    Consegui tu canal por casualidad, te sigo viendo porque eres un chico genial, trabajas solo, en silencio, concentrado y todo lo haces muy bien. Que paisajes mas bonitos. Te has conseguido una buena cueva donde pasar la noche y tu perro me parece excelente mascota. Un saludo desde Alicante 🇪🇦

    Although it’s insulated, I’m looking forward to seeing how you’re going to warm it. Fireplace somewhere? Using rocks from the forest?

    I find it somehow extremely interesting, that the only words he has spoken through the entire series so far, are to the fire as he pleads with it to continue burning.

    at 8:40 you helped your dog in to hang out with you, and I knew right there you were a really good person, you even give him blocks of wood to chew. Love from Wisconsin.

    Love the backpack with the metal frame and the basket aroung13:05. These frames were 'banned' from mountaineering in the '80's: to dangerous in a fall where the metal could hurt you. And this series is good inspiration for when I really start looking at a tiny house to live in.

    The skills used to do what you have done are sadly lost to most of us. Woodlore is something I think all of us should know and learn and pass on like your forefathers before you. This planet is such a precious gift and if more of us took a minute, took a breath and saw what we have right in front of us, the world would be a better place for it. What a crying shame we continue to ignore this and lose so many beautiful things in the process. Bless you for showing us what we should value and appreciate because you definitely are living your best life. 👏

    Keep up the good work Erik, the log cabin is looking amazing and your efforts and quality of construction will pay off later, under years and years of long lasting enjoyment of your house.
    It’s a very big inspiration to see this great idea taking form in every video.

    this is exactly what i wanna do, with my best friend. we're already "practicing" for it, using a plot of land up in western ma. I want to move to sweden to do this and live with a family or something along those lines, or maybe Ireland. I think that life will be way better than any future personally

    You; my friend; are a big inspiration to us all. I have been checking out some of your mindblowing videos from time to time showing us that "I can't do it" and stay in the bubble is always an option but most of the time it's the worst one we can choose. I dig your "Renaissanse man" mindset. Much respect brother; you are even teaching me valid stuff I had no earlier clue about haha! Blessings n stay safe in this amazing world of failures n possibilities! ; D
