2 Years Alone | Building Log Cabin like our Forefathers



  • Erik Grankvist
    Erik Grankvist  Vor 6 Monate +7714

    After building the log cabin alone in the forest for over a year, I now embark the next years challenges. Last year I ventured out, found a suitable spot, chopped down and dragged the necessary trees and shaped them into a four wall log cabin. Here is the video: declips.net/video/BBX5qh09OIE/video.html&ab_channel=ErikGrankvist
    This year I built the log structure for the roof, laid the complete roof using birch bark and abandoned clay tiles, laid the floor, built an underground root cellar for food storage and much more.
    If you want to see what happens next on the build, click this video:
    I am now 21 and have built this log cabin from the materials found in my own forest in Sweden with only the simple hand tools I could carry in my backpack. Just like our Forefathers did. I had no previous experience in building, gathering materials or even filming. So I started studying the old arts myself and learning from my grandfather and mentor Åke Nilsson. I filmed everything myself using a tripod and edited this video so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do.
    There is still a lot of work left to actualize my dream. To become self-reliant. For example I want to start a full out garden so I can live out here only reliant on that and the forest. Big goal and a lot of work. So if you are interested in my journey then definitely subscribe.
    The clothes I am wearing are from Revolution Race, a Swedish brand. These clothes I use on a daily basis while I am working, hunting and so on. I have now partnered up with Revolution Race and received a discount code that you can also use to get 15% off: GRANKVIST15

    Thank you for watching my videos.

      @ExTrem Yes but there is no humidity. Unlike other regions of extreme cold Alaska is somewhat unique due to the lack of humidity. For example if you cover a piece of ham with water then put it in -20 degree weather it will easily freeze. Take the same ham and dry it out so there isn’t any water and put it in -20 and it will not freeze the same way as water. Either way you don’t feel the cold in Alaska unless you get your skin wet which can happen easily if snow melts on your skin. I loved it tho lol I think pa at 25 degrees feels colder then Alaska at -20

    Having born and raised in a tropical Philippines, the knowledge and skills in building a log house is very remote in our place. In this video, I have comprehensively saw the complicated processes of building a log house. And more, the dedication and hardwork of the builder is awesome. Without the aid of modern machines, he built the structure in tradition of his forefathers. My respect to you and thank you for sharing this video. Btw, how's your pet dog. How I wish I could have one. Good luck and please produce more videos like this.

      @Sean - JSJ Incorporated Firstly, I'm also swedish, and most swedish people speak english quite well, and I don't think this guy is an exception, so saying it might've got lost in translation is a bit cheap. Your points are all valid though, but I meant more about the title than the actual video. + There are lots of people who will only watch some parts of the video, not seeing those parts where he isn't there.

    • Sean - JSJ Incorporated
      Sean - JSJ Incorporated Vor 24 Tage

      @pigZie Perhaps. I think he meant what I said earlier and it got lost in the translation. He is Swedish after all. He even shows himself trekking back to his car or his grandfather's house (this is on his grandfather's property) using nordic skis. I don't think he's trying to make it look like he's out in the woods all the time. He even brings stuff from home, such as pancake batter and jars of jams and preserves, implying that he's living somewhere else.

    • pigZie
      pigZie Vor 24 Tage

      @Sean - JSJ Incorporated Well the title isn't building a log cabin liek our forefathers alone. It's 2 year alone, new segment, bulding log cabin like our forefathers. Do you see the difference? The way he says it, implies that he was alone for 2 years, and sometime during those 2 years, he built a log cabin.

    • Sean - JSJ Incorporated
      Sean - JSJ Incorporated Vor 24 Tage

      @pigZie He wasn't literally cut off from civilization for 2 years. It TOOK him 2 YEARS to build the cabin, which he did ALONE. You're misinterpreting the title.

      2 - he said somewhere that he wants to make a garden the future becoming self-sustainable. Although not explicitly told, I think he does go into towns for supplies.
      He is alone in the woods but he isn't yet completely off the grid. Not trying to belittle you by the way, I thought of this too.

    I love how you were out there appreciating nature in all its glory. Much to my surprise, nature was also appreciating you as well! Glad this video was recommended! first it was a beautiful lady cooking a tropical meal in the middle of nowhere, and then this great man who shows us, with dedication and hardwork, you can do anything! It is like DEclips is telling me to stop playing video games and go out and enjoy nature....I guess I better get to it!

      @Logan Sanders Definitely, that is very true.
      The only reason we are even still here is because of our will to unite as humanity and face against whatever nature has thrown at us so far. We've overcome all of that.
      But I am more so talking about the fact that some people would rather prefer this kind of lifestyle, living in solitude and going back to our ancestor's roots and working for basically everything you'll get to eat tonight.
      It feels very rewarding when all is said and done, especially when there's nobody there to bother you and you get to finally have a well deserved rest at the end of the day.
      Not many are willing to do that, but there are some.

      @yobobab city life isn’t exactly a luxury when most humans on the planet live in at least a small city, with millions living in the largest ones. It’s not really a recent development either, because people have made villages and towns for thousands of years. There’s a reason people live together in such large groups, and it’s because doing literally everything on your own is inferior in basically every way.


    What a masterpiece, how relaxing it is.
    Smart fellow with great skill.
    Thanks for suggesting such a video 📹 💕

    i'm fascinated thinking about the technicalities. -How often did you need to head back and charge or replace camera batteries or get extra supplies? -how many camera batteries do you have and how picky do you need to be about shots to make them last? -how far are you from a town or electricity/stores, etc? -Do you own the land or did you need permits to build? - It must be a pain going back for the camera after each shot. Either way, Your documentation is hugely entertaining and inspiring. Best of luck on the next one.

      @Ezequiel Al I'm cool as a cucumber. Thank you very much. And I'm talking about the descriptions and captions of all of his videos. I have indeed watched all. if you gave the rest of his content Even a cursory glance, you'd realize that 'most' of the time... He is indeed by himself. Your one discovery of a singular other person holding a camera doesn't negate the other hundreds of hours of work this guy does alone in the bush. But don't fret, your diploma from buzzkill university is still in the mail
