Inexpensive debt free MASSIVE Off Grid Log Cabin Build start to finish timelapse. Building with crooked logs is a challenge in every way. Not to mention every single log was Persimmon Tree, one of if not the hardest hardwood tree in my forest. Persimmons are so dense a 6 inch diameter 8ft long log section can weigh 300lbs. They make everything difficult, but they cost me nothing and I learned to love them for what they are. It definitely makes my home look unique. It's hard to believe that it only took me 9 months of hard work to make it live in ready. Here I've put together a timelapse of the last year of building, hundreds of hours of footage cut into about a 30 min video. I've done a lot of work to get the cabin to where it is now, and I thought it would be nice to have a video showing everything from start until now. Watching the shorter episodes, gives a completely different understanding of how the building was done. There will be more long form videos on the full build with even more detail coming soon. If there are any key moments in the build you would like to see more of please let me know in the comments section below. More work on the homestead will be coming soon, finishing the chinking with mortar, interior doors, building a greenhouse, harvesting fish from our pond, building a dog trot connecting both cabins, rainwater catchment for the house, solar, and more...stay tuned. Happy Holidays, stay safe!

Little about me
After spending most of my life in the big city, living a congested life within society's grip I decided to leave all that behind and become more self reliant living a simpler more fulfilling life close to nature. My wife and I have 6 children, we homeschool, raise a garden, mini farm and try to be resourceful as we can providing everything the family needs from nature.
