  • Two Years Alone in the Wilderness | Escape the City to Build Off Grid Log Cabin

    1:31:40

    #logcabin #bushcraft #offgrid #survival
    One man leaves the city life behind to build a cheap off grid log cabin and homestead in the Canadian wilderness, including a log home, an outdoor kitchen, an outhouse, a woodshed and a sauna bathhouse. Building mostly with hand tools, Shawn James harvests building materials from the forests north of Toronto, Canada and crafts them into functional tools and shelters using traditional woodworking tools and methods. He practices bushcraft and survival skills every day, including fire starting, tree identification and harvesting, wild edible foraging, fishing, hunting, camping in the summer and winter, travelling by canoe and snowshoe, navigation and water collection and purification.
    Continue watching in 2019 as Shawn finishes the sauna, plants a forest garden for fruit and vegetables, builds an underground root cellar, ice house and cheese cave, a timber frame workshop and a remote hunt camp closer to fish and game.

  • A Year in the Wilderness | Off Grid and Self Reliant in a Log Cabin

    3:22:14

    Another full year in the wilderness living my dream. There is no place I would rather be than in the wilderness, self reliant, thriving in an off grid log cabin and living close to nature. Spring arrived today, and in my mind, it's the beginning of a new year and I reflect on the last 365 days spent building my homestead and creating a safe place for my family and me for times like this. The next 365 days will bring big changes for me and my family as we continue to learn how to and practice becoming more self reliant and put the lessons I have learned over the last three years to use. This year, food security and health are our focus, along with a few building projects that I'll be undertaking alone to make our homestead more self sufficient.
    Stay healthy and be kind.

  • Man Builds Off Grid Log Cabin Alone in the Canadian Wilderness

    1:3:29

    One man builds a cheap, rustic log cabin in the Canadian wilderness alone and without power tools over several months in 2017.
    Please SUBSCRIBE:
    So Why Should You Subscribe To My Channel?

    To watch me build my next cabin - bigger and better than this one!..
    To relax…
    To virtually immerse yourself in nature…
    To see how I live debt free, stress free and low cost…
    To see how I build things alone…
    To see how I cook with no electricity or gas…
    To hear what steps I took to retire in my mid-forties so I could live my dream life…
    To interact with the happiest and most helpful community of viewers on YouTube…
    To become more self-reliant.
    Finally, one video showing the entire build process from the cutting of the first tree to the laying of the last floor board - no food, no talking, no visitors, just carpentry, bushcraft, timber framing, blood, sweat and tears.
    My end goal is to have an off grid, primitive wilderness homestead, where I can practice primitive technology, bushcraft and traditional skills in an effort to become as completely self reliant as possible in this day and age.
    In late April, I cut the first balsam fir tree down on the property near Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada. Next, from June until August, I collected all of the building materials and fabricated the cabin using saddle notches in the corners. I cleared the land in August, laid down gravel for a pad and began erecting the off grid log cabin. By September, the walls were done and I started on the roof framing in October.
    In November, I burned the roof boards with shou sugi ban, an ancient Japanese technique for preserving wood. Against convention, I installed the roof in board and batten fashion, using my roofing background to come up with techniques to keep the cabin watertight.
    Next, I moved inside where I installed a Vermont Castings wood stove on top of a limestone flagstone floor, which extended from the doorway to the center of the cabin underneath the fireplace.
    For the rest of the floor, I framed it using 2x4 and 2x6 red pine boards and then installed 2x6x10' boards, which I burned using the same shou sugi ban technique.
    Now in December, I chinked the walls with moss and clay and have been spending a lot of time in the cabin, starting rustic furniture made with materials from the surrounding forest.

  • Alone at Dick Proennekes Log Cabin in the Wilderness | Silence and Solitude in Alaska

    1:8:56

    #logcabin #cabin #Alaska
    Shawn James visits Dick Proenneke's off grid log cabin at Twin Lakes in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska and spends two nights alone camping on the gravel beach of upper Twin Lake. Bears, moose and Dall sheep abound and he catches and cooks fish on an open fire, including arctic grayling and arctic char, catching and releasing sockeye salmon as well.
    Hiking in the mountains of the Alaskan range, he views incredible vistas from the mountain tops and watches as clouds race through the valley, with ever changing weather - rain, sun, wind...
    See the inside of Proenneke's log cabin as well as three others, which will be showcased in more detail in the follow up video.

Learn how I cut the notches, lift the logs into place by myself and start preparing my house to live a life like Dick Proenneke did in Alaska.
    Get prepared for the apocalypse by building your own primitive off grid log cabin, tiny house in the woods of wilderness Canada.

    Learn how to work alone and build your own home using nothing but hand tools - no power tools. Be a modern day lumberjack and outdoorsman capable of self reliant living. Create your own homestead, starting with a tiny home.

  • One Year of Log Cabin Building / One Man Building His Dream House

    2:10:36

    #logcabin #woodworking #offgrid
    It's one year since I started this journey of building my off grid log cabin, which was a dream of mine since I was a kid and last October 2018 I decided and took the courage to start with this huge build by myself. Since then I came a long way, working in every weather imaginable, seeing many amazing sunsets and overcoming every obstacle in order to have the log cabin as it is now. I documented most of my work and put all of the best moments into this 2 hour documentary. I think I have another year to completely finish the house, but I'm more than happy whit what I've done so far. Hope you enjoy the video and thank you very much for watching and thanks to everyone that has been watching and supporting my channel.

  • Off Grid Log Cabin Built by One Man: Log Gables and a Bushcraft Mystery

    10:06

    This is the fourth part of a series of short videos on my successful attempt to develop a totally wild and secluded place. In this episode, I will show you how I topped the side log walls with full log gables.
    Also, a strange thing happened while I was filming this episode. I was absent for only an hour at the cabin's construction site but found a canopy tarp torn through the reinforced seams. A human couldn't do that, a large animal wouldn't be able to get through the fallen trees to the construction site. I didn't hear any noise. The question is, who did it? It's a bushcraft mystery...

    TWO YEARS ALONE in the WILDERNESS // Building an OFF GRID Yurt | DOG TRAINING for BEARS - Ep. 117
    Jake and Nicole are building a second Yurt at Komorebi their wilderness property in the coastal mountains of Vancouver Island, Canada. Jake and Nicole have been living in a 30' diameter yurt for nearly two years and now are building a 16' diameter yurt from Follow Jake and Nicole's journey as we finish this 16 foot yurt which features a lattice wall and center dome ring made of bamboo. This yurt is a tiny home that will be the residence of the Komorebi manager should Jake and Nicole ever step away from Komorebi or should they need extra help with projects. Having a property manager and helping hand living on site at Komorebi is tough at this remote location because Komorebi is boat access only and very remote. This means extra firewood, supplies, food, and social dynamics that come with having an extra person living at the property.

  • Off Grid Log Cabin S 2 Ep 12 / Teaching my Girlfriend Woodworking

    41:31

    I finally started with the roof covering and protecting the cabin and the logs from the rain. They were exposed to the direct rain for over a year and a half. Every time that I say this was probably the hardest work that I've done on the cabin, then the next step seems even harder and so it is also with the roof covering. With the help of my family it is at least more fun.

    One year ago today I uploaded the first video of my primitive living series showing how I built my adobe hut. During the past year I've done and learned so much more such as home improvements, built an adobe rocket stove, primitive weights, primitive cooking, traditional food preparation, and even had new neighbors in the form of birds. So here is a compilation of clips (some never before seen) from the first year of the hut.

    I'm so happy with the growth of my channel and I thank you my fans and audience and YouTube too of course! Much more coming in 2020!

    35:33

    I have been doing this project for a few years now and never really made a video about what a typical day is like. i think most will be quite surprised how normal it is. sometimes we do less work and more relaxing and sometimes we work from light till dark. I work 7 days a week on one thing or another but i prefer to refer to it as living because work isnt the right term really. i hoped to get more footage of my activities doing jobs around the place but it was a miserable day and my camera was getting wet and i didn't want to get lime on it as i was lime plastering. Please be kind to us in the comments. we have invited you in to our home for the day so please be polite guests.

    Nicole and I are attempting to live off the grid in British Columbia, Canada. We have 8 acres of forest property sandwiched in between the Pacific Ocean, a fresh water lake, and a stream which flows year round from the lake into the ocean. For over nearly 10 years I grew a fruit tree, permaculture, garden, and native edible plant, herb, and raised bed garden food forest. You can still watch all the garden videos of my old desert garden in Arizona. I was born in British Columbia and I have returned to the Rain Forests of British Columbia to a Raw Land property to grow my 1st FULL EDIBLE FOOD FOREST Off Grid on a wilderness property. This climate is temperate and coastal, rarely seeing snow in the winter and highs in the 80's (30 Celsius) in the summer. It is a rare microclimate that spans from gardening zone 7-9. The property is 8 acres and completely overgrown, mostly with conifer trees. This area is a verifiable rain forest and situated in the Southwestern-most tip of the Canadian Great Bear Rain Forest. NicHolistic ( and I will be learning about edible seaweeds, edible native plants, edible mushrooms, and many other edible native trees/plants as we attempt to Build a Yurt, Draw Our Energy Clean, Live Off the Grid, and Grow an Epic Superfoods Garden and Fruit Tree Orchard. We will also have a lot of changes coming so get ready. More videos and BTS Clips at my VLOG channel

  • Wild Turkey - Off Grid Survival Food | Living Off the Land at the Log Cabin

    20:41

    Spring is wild turkey season and the time to start harvesting food from the land for survival at the off grid cabin. My wife and I cook wild turkey for two meals, - braised turkey in the earthen oven and fried turkey fingers with homemade sauerkraut, homemade raw milk fresh cheese on bannock fried on the woodstove. I cut wing feathers for fletching on a set of arrows I'm making now that I'm renewing my passion for traditional archery. I finish the day planting spinach in the garden and fertilize with milk whey and ashes from the woodstove.

  • Fall at the Off Grid Cabin | Life in Alaska

    20:11

    Fall is a short season in Alaska, nonetheless crisp days fill the air and vibrant leaves create a colorful landscape. With freezing temperatures the growing season comes to a halt and we embrace the wood stove for the beauty and warmth it provides.

    We clean up the yard, protect the fruit trees with vole guards and prepare the beehives for the upcoming winter with candy boards, quilt boxes, and extra insulation. We end the night with a lovely harvest of brussel sprouts for a fresh meal at the cabin.

    Our 2021 Alaska Calendar is available for purchase!

  • Building A SOLAR POWER SYSTEM For Our Off Grid HOME | Easy DIY Install

    Go to to grab a variety pack and try it today! Be sure to use the promo code WILD at checkout to get $5 off your order.

    Shop Our Apparel:

    We spent the past few days taking down our solar power set up so we could make room for both our existing components and our new ones. With the additional 20 solar panels we are adding, we will be bringing in three times the amount of power we currently are. This means our current solar power setup won't work for us the way it is. Everything needs to be reconfigured to accommodate for the increased amount of power we will be bringing in.
    So, is solar power worth it? For us, yes! Our current system is capable of running everything inside our modern off-grid home. Where we run into issues are when we have more than 3 days of solid clouds. This additional power will compensate for multiple cloudy days and allow us to function as if it were a sunny day.

    We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.
    Our house build is documented entirely on our main channel Wild Wonderful Off-Grid and our family life vlogs can be found on our secondary channel Wild Wonderful After Show

  • Log Cabin Life: First Night in the Off Grid Pallet Wood Cabin

    37:03

    I spend my first night alone in the Off Grid Log Cabin which we built from recycled Pallet Wood. Being alone in the woods in the tiny house was really something special. I felt completely disconnected from society and much closer to nature and the forest. With the woodstove burning and candle lanterns lighting the cabin, it felt rustic and cosy. Living off the land is something I am striving to learn more about. Now that I have this tiny cabin as a base to learn Bushcraft, Foraging and Cooking skills. As well as develop my survival skills. Temperatures were cold outside but the cabin was like a sauna.
    I had the best nights sleep I have ever had whilst camping. I enjoy some food cooked on the stove and open some subscriber presents that were sent to me. To watch the full log cabin build visit the playlist below.

    In today's video we are breaking down how we are wiring up our charge controller and inverter. We have a solar powered home so having the proper solar power setup is key to functioning normally while living off grid. This is a multi-part series on the upgrade to our solar power system which includes installing all the solar components, wiring the system up, programming the system, turning power on, building a solar stanchion and installing solar panels.

  • Family of 7 Living Completely Off-Grid in Northern Canada!

    10:09

    In this video, we meet Jeff, Rose, and their 5 girls who are living completely off grid on a 40-acre piece of land in Northern British Columbia, Canada. They built their own off-grid house for less than $25,000 with cedar posts sunk into the ground like a pole barn, log rafters, plywood, foam insulation, and a living roof. The house was so affordable to build because they didn't have to excavate or pour a concrete foundation, dig a well, or install a septic system.

    They have 2 solar power systems to power everything they need. The first solar system is just one solar panel that generates 12-Volt power for their lights, cell phones, and music player. The larger system is a 2.5 Kilowatt solar power system installed on their shop roof with a lithium ion battery bank that powers their full-sized fridge, a chest freezer, washing machine, as well as a mixer, blender and a toaster. They have a backup generator but they only have to use it for about 40 hours per year during prolonged cloudy or snowy periods.

    All of the water the family uses is rainwater collected from their shop roof and stored in a tank under the shop floor to keep it cool. They carry buckets of water into the house for cooking, dishes and showers. To produce clean drinking water, they filter their rainwater in a passive water filter called a Burkey (check them out here:

    The grey water from their kitchen sink and shower drains into a shallow grey water field in the backyard.

    They have 2 composting bucket toilets and they sprinkle sawdust into the buckets after each use to absorb moisture and prevent smells.

    For heat, they cut their own firewood for their Blaze King catalytic wood stove, and for their antique cookstove in the kitchen that they use for cooking and baking.

    Jeff and Rose homeschool their 5 girls for a few hours each day and also ensure that their kids are learning diverse life skills like growing their own food, caring for horses, raising bees, and more.

    We're very impressed with the clever solutions this family has come up with to make off-grid living seem so easy.

    If you want to learn more about this inspiring family and follow their journey, check out their Gridlessness project — they have a blog and a YouTube channel.

  • Building a Traditional Log Cabin / 3 Years From First Log Till Finished

    27:41

    I've meet this guy when I was working on my treehouse and he asked me if I wanted to give him some help and advice as he wanted to build his log cabin and he has never done anything similar before, but neither had I. Of course I was happy with anything I could help and learn as building my own log house was a dream of mine at that time (3 years ago). I went there every now and then when I had time to help and film the process and now after 3 years the cabin is finished and I made this little video showing some of the work from start to the end and how the cabin looks now. It's built using mostly natural resources, wood for all the framing and roof, sheep wool and straw for insulation, no electricity... We became friends and now I'm turning to him for advice and help with my log cabin build, that's how the things go around, what you give you get...

    Don't confuse this with my log cabin building, it has nothing to do with it, this was all filmed few years ago way before I knew that now I will be building my log cabin, but I thought it's a video worth sharing so I hope you'll enjoy watching it.

  • This Couple Have Spent 7 Years in the New Zealand Wilderness

    11:00

    Many people fantasize about leaving the stresses of an urban world behind. Miriam Lancewood and her husband have taken this wish to an extreme, having spent the last seven years living in the wilderness. Subscribe to Journeyman here:

    For the pair, the bush presents more elemental challenges to those faced in modernity: “every day is about surviving”. However, they have no desire to return to the city. “How can you deal with a monotonous existence…I have no idea?” In fact, Miriam hopes to inspire others through her alternative lifestyle, by releasing a book about her experiences: 'Woman in the Wilderness'.

  • The Man Living in Complete Isolation for 40 Years | Far Out

    9:31

    Since 1965, Faustino Barrientos has lived alone on the shores lake O'Higgins' in a house built from the remains of a shipwrecked fishing vessel. He's a pastoralist, living mostly off the land and his livestock, with few modern amenities. His nearest neighbors are in Villa O'Higgins, a small community of several hundred people, 25 miles away, accessible only by a two-day horseback ride through rugged mountain animal paths. Every few years, Faustino makes this ride to sell his cattle in town.

    Currently 81 years old, Faustino is reaching the end of his life, and his self-imposed isolation is being encroached upon by the forces of government, economy, and tourism. In December 2011, VICE went to document his lifestyle and speak with him about the changing face of Patagonia and the gaucho lifestyle.

  • Building The Loft of the Log Cabin using Hand Tools | Axe, Cherry Tree, Ostrich, Snowshoeing

    29:40

    In need of building materials for the loft in the off grid log cabin and log sauna, Cali and I snowshoe through the deep snow in the forest to the grove of dead trees that burned in a lightening strike, seeking out a large black cherry tree that I have had my eye on for two years. I plan to mill it into planks and beams to renovate the sleeping loft, adding storage for clothes and more. I use an axe to cut down the tree - much more exhausting than I anticipated because the wood is seasoned and frozen. With few groceries left in the pantry, I cook an unusual meal of ground ostrich with onions, garlic, zucchini, celery and spices.

    HOT WATER SHOWER from FOREST LOGS & TREES | Outdoor Shower | Bushcraft & Living Off Grid - Ep. 119
    Jake and Nicole are building a new off the grid shower at their wilderness yurt in the rainforest of Canada. This shower structure is made of trees and logs from the forest of Komorebi, Jake and Nicole's property on the Canadian west coast. Soon the tankless water heater and propane tank will go bye-bye and will be replaced by a metal water jacket which will heat water directly from their wood stove, send it to a pressure controlled tank, and be hot shower water on demand whenever we like. Rain water and wood are our two most abundant resources here at Komorebi and this Off Grid bushcraft style log cabin steam shower is dependant on both those resources!

    Follow my way of social distancing by building a tiny pallet cabin on an OffGrid permaculture property. I started from scratch and used 99% used pallet and scratch material collected for free. Watch my first steps on the property building as well as the first gardening and getting the pallet cabin outside walls and the floor done.

    What I want to show is that everyone, where he lives, has the opportunity to get into that lifestyle. I am a big fan of channels like @ShawnJamesMySelfReliance but I didn't have the possibility to build a log cabin deep in the woods due to the place I live and my personal circumstances. But I tried what is possible for me and found a good way to get near to that which I call cabin life. Let's say my goal is My Self Reliance for anyone.

    Note: I am not a pro gardener or carpenter, even I have some experience throughout my life. I am always in a learning process and want to gain more experience by doing. This is not a HowTo channel. It's only documenting my way of getting in balance with my tech & city life. If you want to learn also from my failures this is the right channel for you.

    Follow my way of social distancing during this crazy time by building a tiny pallet cabin on an off-grid permaculture property. I started from scratch and used 99% of used pallets and scratch material. Watch my first steps on the property building as well as the first experimental gardening and getting the pallet cabin step by step done.

    All materials and nearly all tools are collected for free by using craigslist (eBay Kleinanzeigen). For the garden, I used only natural self-made fertilizer out of nettles and also some horse manure. In the future, I will get more garden beds as soon as I know exactly what grows in the forest property and what is not possible.

    Jake and Nicole are living off grid in the temperate rain forest wilderness of British Columbia, Canada.

  • Build a Log Cabin Alone in the Frozen North with Hand Tools | Cedar Sauna Build Ep. 14

    39:59

    #logcabin #handtools #shelter
    Using mostly hand tools, I am building a Finnish sauna or Russian bathhouse with cedar logs in the Dick Proenneke style log cabin, and this week, I install the front porch overhang, the rear overhang and the gable end logs. I use ripping and crosscut handsaws, a log scribe, timber framing slick, chisels, mallets, hammers, log tongs and a drawknife to fit the logs in place, a chainsaw to cut them to length and a bubble level to make sure everything is level and plumb. So far, so good. At the end of the video, I cut down three balsam fir trees, 17 feet long, to use as full length ridge and purlin logs. The top course of wall logs are cedar and were spliced in the center of the long walls to extend 3 feet over the porch and 2 feet over the back wall.
    For dinner in the cabin, I make a simple stew with the venison that I bottled in January, fried with onions, garlic, bok choy, hot sauce and sauerkraut. I have the same leftovers for breakfast the following morning along with coffee with grass fed butter mixed in. After breakfast, I break up some chaga mushroom and add it to the kettle to simmer all day, frequently sipping the hot tea as I work outside in the cold.
    It's a full moon, and the forest is lit up like daylight in the dead of the cold night. The cabin is lit only by firelight tonight - candles, wood stove and lantern, and Cali, our golden retriever, sleeps soundly on her chair after a long, hard day of retrieving in the deep snow, snow that is now well over three feet deep. It's been a hard winter, lots of snow and many very cold days.
    Last year around this time, Makers Mark Branding sent me two branding irons of My Self Reliance logo. I lost one immediately, I think buried under the floor before I framed and installed the floor boards. I found the other in my tool storage in the outhouse, so I heated it up in the wood stove and branded the cherry cutting board that I made last week from the cherry tree that I cut down with an axe.
    At the end of the video, I talk about a childhood friend that just passed away suddenly at 48 years old and how that is impacting me and making me reflect on my own life and mortality.

  • Wilderness Living, Catch and Cook Whitefish, Trout & Wild Turkey on a Campfire

    30:03

    This is a first for me - catching a species of fish for the first time in a place not well known for them. Jim Baird, winner of History's Alone, and I head deep into Algonquin Park to chase brook trout and lake trout but end up with two additional species that we did not expect to find where we did. This was my first time ever catching this type of fish and it was incredible cooked on a rock over the campfire and was even better the following day fried on a cast iron skillet. Along with the fish on the fire, we roasted a turkey let from the wild turkey I harvested earlier in the week.

  • OUR VERSION OF ALONE IN THE WILDERNESS. Off Grid and Loving It.

    15:38

    In 2017, we sold our house and moved to our off grid cabin. It's been my childhood dream to spend a winter up here and now that I'm in my mid 50's, I decided it time to check this one off the bucket list. Our first winter went well and our second one even better. This video is a summary of our adventure, living off the grid in the NH woods.

    MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

    Q: How old is Frankie? A: Frankie will be 10 in April of 2018
    Q: What video editing software do I use? A: Presently, all I use is Windows Live Movie maker but I’m considering trying imovie, Adobe Elements or SONY VEGAS PRO.
    Q: How do you get your water? Did you dig a well? A: Presently, I haul water to the NY cabin but at the NH cabin, I drop a kettle into an old well that was dug by hand by the settlers in the 1700’s.
    Q:What is your favorite brand of cast iron cookware? A: I prefer using vintage cast iron. My favorites are BSR and Griswold. If I had to buy new I would buy a Lodge Brand. I plan to purchase this dutch oven in the future:

    Q: What do you use for refrigeration? A: We have a small gas refrigerator that we salvaged from an old Shasta camper and a custom icebox that I built into the cabin wall. We make ice on site with a propane freezer.

  • Dovetail Log Cabin - Installing Windows, Cutting Door Frames and Building Stairs

    18:29

    The cabin is taking shape!

    The days have started to get a bit shorter in Canada, and the inside of the cabin was getting dark in the evenings. I used the Warrior X Pro light from Olight to help with visibility inside the cabin. Thanks Olight!

    This week I have started cutting out holes for windows and installing windows. I also cut holes for the doors and built doors for the cabin.

    I used the pieces of log I cut out for the door holes to make stairs on the front and back porch.

  • Log Cabin Bathhouse | Installing a Wood Stove | Maple Syrup | Off Grid Haircut

    17:20

    With spring weather just around the corner, I get back to work on the sauna, tap the maple trees for maple sugar and clean myself up for company on Friday when visitors will help me boil my first 2019 batch of maple syrup.
    The roof of the log cabin is now watertight and the sauna heater (log burning wood stove with water reservoir) is installed and burning, helping to melt the snow and ice that covers the floor of the bathhouse.
