100 thoughts on “Build a Log Cabin with Fence Posts In My Backyard

  1. Bonjour Monsieur,
    J'admire votre travail mais, ce travail est t'il réalisé le week-end ou tous les jours de la semaine ? Car, moi je rénove une maison les week-ends et je suis bien en dessous de votre performance. En tout cas bravo pour vos idées de génie, votre travail en solo est spectaculaire !

  2. hey man, idk if you read your comments but i just found you about an hour ago and instantly subscribed. Love what your doing and am very inspired to do my own log cabin when i have the time and money to invest. Please keep doing your videos.

  3. I like how the things you build are so aesthetic and non-intrusive on nature. They stand out but in more in a more pleasant and Faustian way that isn't garish but really quite beautiful.

  4. Что братишка,ищеш комментарий на русском,а английский нихрена не знаешь?

  5. I just came across this set of videos today. I've been watching non-stop for four hours. You have done a great job. I love Cali!!

  6. Gerne lasse ich dir ein Abo zur Unterstützung für dein weiteres Projekt da. Danke dir für deine Inspiration, deinen Mut, deine Ausdauer, und deinen persönlichen Weg. Du bist ein ganz besonderer Mensch. Nur sehr wenige Menschen haben diese Power und diesen Mut das so durchzuziehen so wie du es machst. Du/Ihr bist am richtige Weg. Egal was andere sagen, Das ist nur der pure Neid die aus solchen Menschen spricht. Denen ist es am besten keine Energie zu schenken. Sie sind mit sich selbst bestraft genug. Ich werde deinen Kanal in meinem Netzwerk teilen, um Euch weiter zu unterstützen. Liebe Grüße aus Österreich

  7. Enjoy every video and try to learn something from each one! Very inspirational and like you say the outdoors are very good for your mental and physical health! Thank goodness for awesome people like you Shawn!

  8. Acho lindo poder construir uma casa assim,mas aqui no Brasil se eu tiver um lugar com árvores vou ter que morar nas árvores pois é muito burocrático pra se cortar um imagine várias pra se fazer uma casa

  9. I’ve watched most of your videos and you sir are a SAVAGE!!! Building without power tools, just because you can… that’s awesome!!! Keep killing it! Love the series. It’s funny I’ve pretty much watched your videos from last to first, I gotta say your filming and editing skills are also superb! 👌🏽

  10. I just wanna tell you that I think it's awesome that you are "taking on too much" … There's nothing wrong with chasing your passion!! Kudos to you!! Keep pushing forward and let the critism pass you by and into the rearview mirror!! I love what you're doing and thank you for sharing your knowledge and learnings!

  11. Great video. I totally get that you have the skills to do this without modern power tools. But you could make things sooooo much easier, and exponentially faster, by using them. Either way, I wish I had your skill set!

  12. I'm 63 wishin I would have been more like you Shawn…I'm pretty sure you're doing it right. I am building on to my cabin in the woods now for my retirement in August. Plan on spending my retirement years modeling your lifestyle. God Bless you my friend. I'm glad I found you & you've been a great influence in my life.

  13. Me and my frend that we grew up together 1st grade on built a cabin we lived for 10yrs after a rough winter we lived good we went to work. And went to the store got food. Cooked. Ate like kings

  14. Great workmanship sir forget the critics everyone has opinions. Do it your way sir. Blessings to you and your wife and lab. Cool videos great property such wonderful nature!

  15. just a point re the dog and her bone, cannon bones can be dangerous, they can get stuck over the bottom jaw.

  16. I could buy a forest here and not be allowed to live in it as our planning depts are narrow minded and unknowledeable.

  17. You want to stay active and be doing in the future what you are doing now but perhaps slower but never stop as if you do your muscle mass drops and you find you end up being able to do less and less. I am trying to build a rock wall but cannot find anyone to help because two years ago I lifted them in myself, now I cant lift most of them as my muscle mass has dimished.
    There is a Facebook Historic Timber group you may be interested in as it covers a wide array or woodworking and some may well be of interest to you. I sent you an invite, if you want to join it. Some of the things you do could well be of interest to them as they cover the whole world.

  18. I am 68 and now feeling the effects of aging. You are smart in being able to do it while you are younger. I helped a friend build a cabin, and built my scribe from materials I had laying around, using his as a pattern.

  19. I enjoy your series, have a half section of my own and wanted to build, but the municipality took it over, and are gouging every cent they can get out of the residents. One thing I would really like to know- what are your essential tools? Good luck.

  20. Great video thanks. I'm not sure where your backyard is, but I have some land where the beavers rebuilt they're dam so I have cleaning up around the trail. I've already swallowed a few black flies and this morning the mosquitoes started. I think it is a very smart way to build the way you are (or have). Call me lazy but I just turned 63 so I'm going to have a Airstream airlifted in stead of a cabin. Just kidding. oh yeah, I have 49 acres in Muskoka ( the land is much cheaper with beaver dams than lakefront)

  21. Good for you! BRAVO! Both of you and dear little Cali. Do what you want when you want as long as it feels good!

  22. I work day after day to support my family of five.. Grinding nonstop.. I would love to do these kind of projects but gotta make money.

  23. Ignore all negative utterances..
    That's exactly what they are… They aren't important. Totally ignore them and carry on with what you are doing. You are an absolute legend… Do your thing. I'm like two years late here. No idea why it took me so long to find your channel!

  24. i understand your affinity to nature. i live in an area of abundant and diverse life. plant and animal both. i love it, but it has also made me sensitive to environmental changes that most people don't even notice

  25. Just subscribed I'm a very active 72yr male I like to stay busy but you had me breathless sort of with your plans…good luck I will be checking in

  26. DONT WORRY ABOUT CRITICISM, ITS A WASTE OF TIME
    Stay on your path and do what you feel you need to do, dont worry about everyone else
    I love your videos and think you are all amazing, so thank you
    i wish i could do what your doing, maybe one day i will..

  27. Не Рубите деревья просто так, это должно быть только необходимостью, не для показа.

  28. All the things you've done are impressive, but I wish you were more upfront in the timelapse videos of this type of stuff. The two years alone video makes it seem like you were out there by yourself with your dog for two years, when it wasn't self reliance as you advertised it.

  29. I noticed so many viewers but so few likes. One thing that might be happening is a lot of folks might be viewing on you tube live stream via Roku. It lets you view but not comment or anything. No buttons only fwd and reverse and next video, previous video. I remember you saying you wished more folks would simply give the thumbs up for watching. So I go off my arse and went back and am giving those thumbs up on all the ones I've seen so far on my PC.

  30. This mofo made it look like the video will show of him making the house.
    Didn't say he will show he's ugly face n chat shit all along.

  31. I was with you up until the ( excuse the wind ) remark ,,,how in the absolute BLUE HELL ! do you " purpose to " ,,, excuse the wind ???? 🤣 Holy shit dude that's about as fuckin stupid as saying ,well excuse the sun for shining today ! It just HAD to show up today ,. ROLL FUCKIN TIDE FROM ALABAMA

  32. YOU'RE A WINNER SHOWED TO ALL THAT WHEN YOU WANT A GOAL IS JUST GOING BEYOND. SHOW THAT WE ARE ABLE.

    AND YOU SHOWED THE WORLD THAT WE MUST PERSIST ON THE OBJECTIVES WE HAVE ACHIEVED.

    Congratulations JAMES!
