    I finish the front of the screened in porch on the off grid log cabin and then decide whether or not to finish the porch or move over to my sauna bathhouse to finish it before the cold weather sets in.

      Love all of the camping stores

    8. Sandie Strutin

      I love the sounds, especially the food cooking in the pan and coffee being poured in the cup. Makes me hungry and makes me want to go camping 😋

    9. Sandie Strutin

      Nice work! You’re very efficient! Don’t you have a wheelbarrow? Oh that’s right! You have that cart you made 😉

      You look better with beard.

    11. Santeri Keskitalo

      Your cabin is amazing. I recognized some Finnish bottles at the saunas window. Greetings from Finland!

    12. Gloria Koch

      The screen porch gives the cabin a while different look.

      Very nice work. Greetings Milan from Prerov, Czech Republic.

      Hi Shawn & family. Just subbed to your videos. I live in the very hectic UK and watching you truly helps me unwind. Amazing. I bet your wife and girls are so proud of you. Nothing good in life comes without lots of hard work and elbow grease and you certainly know how to use both. I only found you yesterday but will be chilling out and catching up. Thank you so much for sharing this, it is truly amazing what you have done. :)

      Whoever gave this video a thumbs down is the worse scum of the earth.

    17. Alan7997

      I could watch these videos for hours. You really do have one of the best channels on youtube.

      Are you turning the window to the Porch into a door?

    19. Aicha Tifour

      my thoughts....bears when sleeping on porch?? yikes!

    21. Katherine

      Pardon a woman asking...but how do you keep your tools with teeth sharp like the one you're pulling off the bark???

    22. Mary Ann Mirro

      Amazing! Turning into a log cabin village.

      How does he prevent bugs eating his lumber?

    26. Lauren Boakes

      I really enjoy these programs of yours. I’m a 73 plus female and retired now due to ill health so I have a lot of free time to watch and enjoy and still learn a lot from what you do. Fascinating to me. Keep up the good work. Kind regards Lauren Boakes from Katikati New Zealand.

    27. DerRobMann (R.T. West)

      I have a project idea for you (as if you didn't need more work) that I think would make your place the most unique in probably Ontario, at least. Why not build an observation tower (wood or metal)? If the average height of the trees around you are 60 to 75 feet tall, an 80 foot tower would be doable, I'd think. Great for star-gazing, overseeing the surroundings (animals, fire threat, intruders [French Canadians, drug runners, Bigfoot, ETs, etc.]), photography or simply a place to kick it for a while. Okay, I've done all I can do from here -- The Concept Phase. You're doing a fine job on all the rest. Saludos, desde Colonia Centro Historico, Puebla, Mexico, DerRobMann sends..

      Love your channel Shawn! Keep up the great work up there! You should be very proud of what you've accomplished!

    29. Nelson Rivera

      Good Project

    30. Mike Tettero

      It's not a show for vegetarians or low-fat cooking, that's for sure :-) Great watching this, almost relaxing!!

    31. Bud Maurizzi

      I wacth your videos everyday. They calm me and take away stress of city life here in Wisconsin. Happy Thanksgiving 2019. They motivate me to keep going.

    32. Jeffrey Sasquatch

      Shawn what do you put onto the outside of your logs to seal them from the weather and from rot?

    33. Delena Johnston

      We live in a forest but not off the grid. As soon as I step out if the truck the fresh air smell is to die for. He reminds me of my hubby, can build or fix anything. A real man you could say . Love these videos! Perfection

      Really enjoying your videos, but have some ideas for you to consider: 1. Enclosing porch would create another room for 3 season use at least 2. The porch doorway is an inconvenient walk from cabin front door. What about putting a door between porch & cabin in the location of the window you have on that wall? 3. Curious why you put the bath house so far from the cabin, & the outhouse so far in the other direction? 4. Why is the roof of the outdoor kitchen so slanted? 5. Idea for paths between buildings. Use boardwalks for that purpose.... like in the old west... no walking in the mud. Keep up the good work!

    42. Brent Neves

      Really dude? now I'm starving.... those thick bacon slices and sunny side up eggs.....Oh and the cabin is nice too😁

      Shawn Hoy do you protect the the sauna from humidity?

    48. Marcel Cicort

      Why is the entrance to the screened porch on the side and not towards the front of the house from where to enter quickly since most of the things are happening in the main cabbin, its porch or towards the other buildings all which are away from this porch entrance.. just wondering.

I love what you’re doing and hope to one day do the same ! So I will end this by saying I so appreciate having these videos to watch and in some small way I feel connected to you. Keep up the great work and I’m a loyal fan forever now ❤️
