I'm one year in building a homestead in these two stone barns at this plot of land in the mountains in Piedmont, Italy. The first months I focused on the electricity, water connection and creating comfortable space to live on the land, whilst I was waiting for the building permit.

Stunning. What you said about uncontrollable nature, “It gives and takes, but mostly gives.” No doubt of that by watching your video. How can anyone question the existence of an almighty God with the beauty that surrounds you? Thank you for sharing.

It looks so magnificent breathtaking, but am just a woman, my husband was also a builder, he passed away unexpectedly. He could convert anything into something beautiful, nature was his most entertaining challenge. His vision was not to distort, or dismantle but to add additional dressing to complete a parabola of a restorable vision no matter of the complexity situation it need ed. CONGRATS!!!

Do not be so stingy with the drinks and food. For all that free labor, I would have at least a tub of ice with a variety of drinks and a fridge full of food.

man you are just great. I'm actually from Italy (Liguria near Piedmont) and seeing a foreign guy putting so much effort and love to bring back to life two old stone cabins, "Teccio" as we call it, and choosing to live off grid here is simply so wonderful and you deserve all the Italians respect. Thanks for sharing your journey and your skills, amazing.

You have done a phenomenal job not only on the two+ structures but also on the video. It's hard for me to comprehend how one man could have all of your many varied skills; a few worth noting: photojournalist, editing, sound, civil engineering, architect, construction worker, sociable, creativeness, and especially the manner in which you approached this project. You worked hard, but you recognize the important things in life: good food, cooking, hiking, enjoying the outdoors, and being with other people. Finally, thanks for not complaining about the loneliness and hard work like so many other TRshow creators!👍

This man’s dream & journey to accomplish it are mind boggling. And, beyond that…. I’m trying to imagine the hard-working hands of whomever built these cabins so very long ago. No power or power tools, finding & hauling all those stones & rocks…my mind cannot sometimes comprehend what determined human beings can do….❤

I live in a small town in Licking, Missouri, USA. I’ve always wanted to travel,especially to Italy. I’m disabled now so I don’t have any faith that will ever happen. But you & your videos are giving me the opportunity to still have a piece of my dream & I thank you for sharing. You have an amazing gift. You knowledge of both carpentry & ability to gain the natural power amazes me. Gods art is even more amazing. I hope you will continue to share your adventures.

who says you can't? an australian paraplegic trekked mount everest in a wheelchair. Martin Hibbert climbed Kilmanjaro in one too. I would not suggest climbing mount everest, but with the over 1 billion disabled people, they've certainly created pathways for disabled peopel to at least visit the country of italy. And italy itself isn't especially difficult, its just another modern country that's gonna have a lot of disabled accomodations. Do your dreams, be charitable, be kind. There is zero reason to regret when you can just try, taking risks for happiness :) edit: now ironically, nepal did have to ban blind/double amputee people from climbing. 300 people die on it a year, and its really just a very long line with a lot of trash and dead bodies thawing from snow melted due to climate change. Its high, but a mountain isn't high in comparison to other mountains, its high based on the spiritual experience you feel. So I would not recommend Everst to anyone. Nepal's probably incredible otherwise. Probably one of the more difficult places with a disability. Italy's just a fun, simple, good time.
Licking, right by Pleasures?

I’m sitting here in a beautiful outdoor movie theatre surrounded by tall Norfolk Island pines at the University of Western Australia watching your videos on my tablet during lunch breaks. Your films transport me each and every time. Your silence within your projects, vistas, and explorations, combined, invite me to imagine being there. Imagination is everything. I live in a limestone cottage built in 1904 for dock workers at Fremantle port. It came with 2 friendly ghosts who had lived here at different times over its 120 year history. I am a scientist~turned~believer. Can’t help but wonder what your stone cottages hold? Thank you for sharing you and your adventures.

Martijn, I happened upon your video yesterday and initially thought - three hours? I watched half last night and thought about it all day, couldn't wait to finish work and get back to watching. You are an incredibly talented man, I am amazed at your design, carpentry, plumbing, masonry, electrical, baking, gardening, photography...and so much more, skills! How can one person know how to do so many things so well? The music you chose is devine, I've never been so relaxed, and it is a perfect match for the grandeur of your incredical home. Those mountains! Thank you for sharing your life with us, I cannot wait to see more. Bless you.

We started to follow Martijn on his stone house restoration journey over a year ago. We were so inspired by his content that we decided to start our own stone house restoration journey. In September 2022 we bought an abandoned land in Spain that has the stone house that will be restored soon. We started to share content in the hope to inspire others as Martijn inspired us. We are very grateful to Martjin for sharing his journey with us. Thank you

I don't know why, maybe its the music, maybe its the months of watching the property and channel grow but found myself damn near crying at the end of this video. Not out of sadness, not fully at least. I feel he captures the step by step process so well that it feels like a long journey coming to an end. Although it isn't ending and I look forward to a new video every week! Thank you Martjin!

This is epic! Thank You for creating content that is so ‘real’! My ancestry is half Italian decent so I felt such a connection to this place. Everything about how you created these chapters was so crisp, so fresh! Like the crunch of the artisan bread to the freshly picked produce. When you reached the top of that summit on your hike, it was as if I was standing right there with you! I could feel the breath of God up there on that mountain. 🙌🏻 I just can not say enough good about this vlog!! I have shared it with everyone I know!! Also, my Dad was a ‘Master Carpenter’, and as a young girl, I would build things with him, I dug holes, I hammered nails, this just brought me back to that time in my life. Wishing you well, Martijn. Thank You for sharing your ‘creation’ with the world! It is truly a gift. 😊

What a beautiful and meditative three hours. As a psychologist I encourage my clients to be "mindful." You embody that perfectly - taking in each moment, focusing on what you can do, accepting what is uncontrollable, and not letting your emotions get too high or too low. Thank you for sharing your life and project with us and capturing it so well.

What a great process to watch; candy for the fundamentalist method builders out there. On top of all the hard labour, making sure to film all sorts of much work went into this. Fabulous to watch. Thanks Martijn.

Truly a beautiful work of art. We watched it fully through in one sitting - completely unexpected. It came up as a random play after that guy that goes through abandoned mansions. The story, pacing, visuals, music, and people are incredible. Well done. Have already found some new music favorites from this for background music at home. Grazie!

Absolutely astounding, watching makes me want to be there and feel the gratification of a small nap on the grass, I want to feel strain of hefting a stove into the cabin, all the victories large and small. Bearing in mind not a one of us is a perfect human being. Taking the time and the effort to afford yourself the work to accomplish something as this man here has done, will however make you feel perfect. Live your lives 1 simple day, 1 simple moment at a time and thank our creator for the little bits of nature we've still got left to live and die within. Peace unto you all. 🤙

You are definitely a person My Wife and I would enjoy hanging out with , cooking over a fire and having a cold beverage .

I’m always in awe how most of this has been just for you, alone but not lonely! To design, create, build and complete each step keeping with you the vision you set out to make a home, to have purpose and ownership.

First I like to say you and all the people that came to help out was such an awesome thing to watch. We need more love like that in the world today. I'll admit I wasn't looking you up I just happen to have my TV on TRshow and feel asleep to something else but woke up to you and 4 other guys working some place absolutely breathtaking and you had me sucked in.😊 There was something that was puzzling me though and I have to ask, when you put the 'condensation paper' on the roof why did you roll it down like you did instead of across overlapping itself ? I'm thinking maybe because the way you did the roof it didn't matter.? (By the way it looked beautiful.) I just turned 55 but last year I built my own shed from the ground up (10x10x12 high) all by myself ,literally and made a second floor instead of a loft , no windows on the bottom but 2 on the top walls. I have no experience only Common sense and I have to say I did a ok. Anyway, I got to the top part and didn't finish the last 2 feet up on 3 walls and didn't get my roof on nor the siding , I have it all framed in and I had the beems up with the 10 ft. Metal sheets but didn't nail in any of the beems or sheets on to the beems and the wind blew all that off and the rain has been pounding on it so I screwed up.. I DID good though, it's built more like a house then a shed. Everything is level and square and I blew my friends away . It's hard work and I just wanted to say if I could of I would of come to help.🙂 I watched the rest of your video and you really did a fantastic job in a wonder land of stunning beauty. I will subscribe and keep watching.. Thank you ,

I had to stop watching this 8 min in as I’ve followed your journey each week from the very beginning on my iPad and realized I need to open this and watch it on my 55” TV because your filming is just absolutely beautiful, your hard work amazing and the scenery stunning. I also loved all your food prep, cooking and bread making over the months, now off to enjoy watching on my TV….thank you for letting us share this wonderful journey with you Martijn! ♥️🍁🍂

I have been watching your videos since you started them with this project. They have been nothing but interesting, enlightening, and full of information. The fact that you haven’t had any serious injuries, absolutely baffles me. But then again, maybe you have and you’re not showing? I want to congratulate you on a years worth of entertainment on dreary days, an uplift in my soul, to get the job done, and an inspiration to be more motivated.

This was such a good film and brought back so many memories. I was involved in a similar project over in Val Belluno forty odd years ago, renovating an old mill. Working much like you have here, living much like you have while getting the work done. I've appreciated every backbreaking joy you have gone through, the satisfaction when a task is done is enormous. I salute you.

I don't have words... this is one of the most beautiful videos I have seen. It must be considered for a significant award, I mean, the cinematic, details, the editing, and all the hard work involved behind... simply stunning. Congratulations brother

Muy interesante! Gracias por su video! Especialmente la parte sobre la restauración del techo, muy instructiva. Una información muy valiosa, para mi, y muy dificil encontrar información sobre este tema! Le animo a compartir otros trabajos que haga en la casa. Una sugerencia, perdón por el atrevimiento, porque no cambia la posición de la puerta a la pared de la cumeeira(esta pared es más alta, y podrías poner una puerta donde pase ud con comodidad) ud no tendría que agacharse cada vez, al pasar por la puerta. La otra puerta la deja como una ventana, dejaría el interior más iluminado. Un saludo desde República Dominicana

Thoreau built a cabin and wrote Walden or Life in the Woods. Your adventure here in the Italian alps is as poetic and creative invoking the same ethos that all of us only need a few material things to live a meaningful life! Thank you from the Pacific Northwest.

Thoreau's "cabin in the woods" was actually a huge cleared tract of land. It was within view of a well used road, a half hour walk from Concord village and his mother helped with laundry and food and his family home was a 20 min walk away. The commuter train to Boston ran along the pond and it was a busy pond all year long. Swimming/picnicking/ice skating/ice cutting. He was finding wilderness in a suburban setting, not living in wilderness. So completely different from what this man did.
