Watch this Timelapse of a Guy Building a Log Cabin in the Woods

This is very impressive. Outdoorsman Shawn James built a log cabin in the Canadian woods all by himself, without the help of any power tools, and he created this awesome timelapse video to prove it. I say we put this guy and the primitive technology guy together and see what happens. They’d probably get off the planet and into the stars quicker than the rest of us, despite starting from scratch.

He writes:

At the beginning of the video, I show a winter drone photo of the cabin in the snow in December. Then I flashback to the first balsam fir tree I cut down with a saw and axe near the cabin. I drag the trees into place and clear the cabin site. All summer, I cut the notches in the logs as I built the cabin up, offsite. Once I was finished notching the logs with a log scribe, saw, axe, adze and wood carving gouge, I loaded up the entire cabin of logs and moved them to my land near Algonquin Park, Ontario Canada…

Because the cabin is offgrid, I have used handtools for most of the build and without power, I have no options on site regardless. The tiny house will continue to be operated with power, not even renewable energy for now, so I’m heating the cabin with a woodstove fire place, which I also cook on.
