One Year Alone in Forest of Sweden | Building Log Cabin like our Forefathers

Sometimes we hear a call from nature. When I was 18 years old I ventured out alone with only a backpack full of simple hand tools to actualize my dream. Build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish wilderness. Just like our Forefathers did.
I had no previous experience in building, gathering materials or filming. So I started studying myself the old arts and learning from my grandfather and mentor Åke Nilsson. I began to cut down trees and film with my phone, learning as I go. My project started full time once I graduated high school in summer 2019. I filmed everything myself and edited this video so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do.
The tractor is a Ferguson TE20 "Grålle" from 1946, they were wildly used to move timber. In 1950 the first chainsaws came to Sweden but they were too big and heavy to be practical. I didn't want to take down every closest tree. So by using the tractor (also as a little tribute) I could haul a few trees from further away, about 150 meters. I would have loved to use a horse but don't have one. yet..

Please share this video with someone who would enjoy it after the year 2020.

Best use of quarantine time ever. Found this searching to see if it’s possible to build my own cabin (with modern tools) in California but the building codes are ridiculous. Still trying though.

here's a question: Is it legal to chop down random trees in a swedish forest and build houses where you like? Here in Austria it sure isn't.

You should grow a tree then build a tree house Garden I have been actually suggesting it to a lot of people on TRshow and garden dudes and dudets. I think we can really change the world for the better this way we can have acres of trees and our technology grow really cool trees that will have really funky and cool stuff that will happen to save this world. Your doing a foraminal job love teal color and stuff but yeah looks funky and cool.
