In this video I build a 12x16 off grid cabin in the woods . a great nature viewing cabin with lots of windows.I built this cabin with mostly rough sawn lumber , and discounted and second hand materials. this project took about a month to build , including restoring the wood stove and filming everything . the cost was about $4,500. I saved a lot of money buying all the windows second hand , the door was free . Another way I saved money was using rough sawn lumber from the amish to frame the walls and side the exterior. the wood stove was one we bought second hand as well , it was in rough shape but I restored it . And one last money saving was I found a place that sold cabin grade tongue and groove pine at a discounted price .
