Outdoorsman Shawn James Builds A Log Cabin In The Woods Without Any Power Tool – Video

In this impressive time-lapse video, outdoorsman Shawn James builds a log cabin in the Canadian woods all by himself, with hand tools only. ‘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 ax 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, ax, 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 off-grid, I have used hand-tools 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 wood-stove fire place, which I also cook on.’ – Shawn James, MySelfReliance
