#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.

  • This is the life which I wanna live. I have bunch of lands in mountain. But river is so far from that. But no one support`s me...Very beautiful. I love folk life, indie music and life in cabins.

  • This is hilariously a vanity project of a person who has too much money. So little evidence of comfort with things you struggle with day to day. How'd he hunt? Where'd he get meat from squirrels etc? Show us how you fished. Sawing with silly small saws. Soldering with a solid block from nowhere, immediately ice fishing (then with expensive hockey skates, lol)? Are you all that is man..., or are you a turd with too much money? I would DEFINITELY strap a bunch of small trees on a plastic tub. Def a pioneer... Pants and coat look cheap...

  • Inacreditável!!! Sou novo por aqui, mas já ganhou um seguidor fiquei aqui me imaginando neste cenário maravilhoso, você o cão e a exuberante natureza. Gosto muito de acampar está dentro da natureza, aqui no Brasil em especial no meu estado "Minas Gerais" sempre que posso dou uma fugidinha da vida agitada e vou para a floresta cachoeira passar um final de semana, mas o Shawn James passou dois invernos. Muito bacana, genial parabéns pelo belíssimo trabalho. Blessed be !

  • This was amazing - as I remodel my 1965 A-frame cabin in TEXAS, you have inspired me and given me energy to finish - I am 70% done, but now looking at re-roofing. I have done this all myself - due to I am a low-income private school Instructor and single. Which I am wondering, I read through the comments - You have not received one proposal - of marriage - so I am submitting an idea - Although I hate cold weather as a native Texas, but just wanted to let you know that you are amazing, hard-working, not feeling sorry for yourself and I bet you sleep really good at night after all that manual labor!!! Love the golden's.
