  1. For the stumps, drill some large holes and poor in some pickling vinegar and salt and they will be rotted within a couple years and will be beneficial for the soil. Also, with all the matter that you have in there you could build some great Huglecultur piles and have things growing in there rather quickly.

  2. Out of curiosity, do you have a problem with ticks that far north? I have a Golden Retriever and can't imagine checking for ticks every day!

  3. How are you going to supply the water for the bath house? Swiss Family Robinson like? Why don't you just set up a wooden fence around the garden with a area that kind of has a barbed wired area that would allow you to take care of whatever garden, but not allow any of the wild animals around there to steal any of your food? How far down do you dig for an Outhouse?

  4. I hope one day I visit Canada! One of the places I would like to go, besides England too. I had been in Namíbia, during the apartheid, five years. Before, in Angola, eight years. Later I had been in Switzerland and Germany, working in civil constrution. Now, besides I´m licentiate in Tourism, I am in this little country in the south east of europe, wich is called of Portugal! My nationality is portuguese, but I am not very proud of it! lol

  5. I'm jealous of your wife! She got a man who can do all this and I love all this rustic living! I mean there are some things my imagination can do in these woods…Great way to spend your days! And most of all no modern or very little modern interruptions. Tip!….Don't make a mailbox! LOL! 😉

    P.S. Your dog loves you so much! What is your dogs name…I don't know if you mentioned it in earlier videos…I started watching when you built the table, bed bench. Or if anyone else knows their dogs name please respond. TY

  6. 👍🇺🇸! Your a pretty darn good tin-bender! 👍🇺🇸 I think you told me that one time that you are experienced in that trade! Good job

  7. คุณนี้สร้างบ้านเก่งจังเลยนะค่ะ

  8. Can't express enough how much I enjoy and appreciate your videos. In this day and age there are many things that people are not capable of doing nor do they even attempt to try new things to challenge themselves. Your message in this video about the difficulty associated with a wilderness lifestyle and the continual learning process associated with that lifestyle was well taken. I am sure there are many that would love to do what you are doing but would be defeated in a short term. Your channel is amazing and I admire your work ethic. I have already watched your most recent videos but I am going back now to watch others. Best to you Shawn and your dog Cali is awesome!!! Makes me laugh often!

  9. Shawn I really enjoy your series on both life in the wilderness and building your cabin and homestead. I really want to try some of your building techniques on our own land in Idaho. Thanks!

  10. I am homeless and my dream is some cabin like this.I want to do one cabine for mi but i don know where.I am in España but if i do cabin here the police will destroy it.I don't know where,i don't know when,but one day i will have cabin like this or caravana.I will dream in bad and i will die in MY PLACE.

  11. Shawn, I love all your plans/ideas. I really hope it goes GREAT for ya. I love the videos you post. I sure like living through your videos. I am learning so much from some of the things you do. What a GREAT life you are living. Be Safe and take care.

  12. Hey Shawn,
    Addicted to your channel!
    You're so amazing!
    Kudos to you, your wife & kids, while you build your life off the land!
    As a city gal, just wondering about ticks our there in the wilderness and if you guys & Cali have been affected?
    How do you keep bears away and if you're armed, just on case?
    Peace & safety from Portland, OR!
    Thank you

  13. I'm a recent subscriber and have been trying to watch as many videos as I can and this has been the only time I have heard Cali bark or woof! Bless her little heart.

  14. You said you were making a guest cabin why not make the original guest cabin and use all your new skills to yourself a new cabin for you and your family

  15. Bom dia, legal o quarto de higiene, tipica, simples mas pelo menos existe.
    O canto de esse pássaro, eu escutei " Hola Hola Hola" kkkkkk que lindinho e que Son forte que ele tem.
    Aqui chove muito hoje e eu e meu café estamos relaxados assistindo esse vídeo, interesante porque se sente como se estivéssemos dentro dele.que interessante a construção dessas cabanas com troncos de árvores de pinos. Não deve ser fácil construir sem ajuda porque são bem pesadas e tem que ter muita força nos braços pra levantar e des locar elas de um lado para outro.
    O cachorrinho uma gracinha de querido, sempre acompanhado seu dono em tudo e muito atento a ruídos estranhos.
    Os detalhes de terminação do forno a lenha para realizar pães e pizzas ficou muito bonito. Cada dia a cabana vai ficando mais equipada e bonita.

  16. Why didn't you just build the outhouse and the bathhouse in one room? I would have attached it to the cabin. A woman doesn't enjoy leaving their house to take a bath. Also, put the outdoor kitchen on the porch. Why so far away from the main house? Keep floors in cabin warm with hotwater pipes. under the floor somehow.

    How will the bathhouse stay warm? Will you put a stove in there? Are you collecting rainwater or do you have a well? How will you get the water to fill the tub automatically?

    A backhole would clear the land much easier than breaking your back! I viewed so many roots and rocks in the soil.

  17. I enjoy watching your wonderful escapades, although unfortunately it does make me feel completely inadequate and hopeless 😩 your skills are incredible. Some how I get a sense of contentment and comfort watching you. Its a weird combination of emotions i confront from my couch 🤔

  18. Love Cali! Love watching her grow up into an exceptional dog! Love this channel! It'll take me a while to get through it all, but I don't want to run out! Question though if I may, when you build the workshop, will you reload ammunition there? That's a very expensive investment in modern equipment, or will you do it Frontier-style? Black Powder?

  19. You are speaking about keeping your small fridge as an icebox. You should check out "BOSS OF THE SWAMP" He made an icebox an icebox in his cabin which is heavily insulated with board styrofoam and frozen bottles of ice with a small vent to the outside which regulates the temperature. It works brilliantly and maybe you can pick up an idea or two from him.

  20. Your living my dream, I would love to live with just me and my dogs, still working on figuring a ways to get what I want where I want, was thinking Montana, I love watching your videos and learning, thanks a bunch, cute dog too 😀

  21. I have to agree with so many others, other than one or two spiritual sites this is "the site that is the dream of my life to go back to those days. I would love for someone like you around my area that has a dream for the tools I have that was my grandpa's. Drilling the holes in the walls I have all those tools. I get a lot of blessings watching this. Thank you

  22. Permaculture is the method used everywhere for successful planting of any kind. If you had not mentioned it, I would have mentioned it.
    You work well Bravo !!!

  23. Wouldnt it be better to make a greenhouse next to your cabin? Clear a few trees to get the sunrays in. Share the heat from the stove with the greenhouse next to your cabin.You'd be able to control moisture, soil and temperature and even when keeping the plants small you'd still get decent sized veggies. Fermenting and or bottling to make a stock.

  24. Your uploads give me sense of harmony and nostalgia at the same time, which is beautiful in itself 🙂
    Your channel deserves many million of followers x

  25. Shawn, as promised: It’s real: you’re now a patron of Shawn James! My amount is small but others will build it.

  26. My mom (she's 88 yo btw) and I just started watching your videos yesterday and end up until 2 am. She loves the interaction between you and Casey. It's her dream to live in the countryside, that's why can't stop watching you.

  27. Solar panels are self reliant. You are harnessing energy from the sun. Maintaining them yourself, etc… You can't get more self-reliant than that.

  28. shawn  que tipo de pajarraco  es que se escucha  parece que dijera  hola hola en el minuto 8:43 es una urraca  o que  ,  parece que  te saludara  desde arriba  hola hola  en castellano  . y lo repite en los siguientes  minutos  , reviza el video

  29. סלחה על התגבה אולי לא רצויה . אתה יותר מדבר ואוכל לבריאות תן לראות את היפה שאתה עושה . הנוף והסביבה יפה לעין . על כל פנים תודה לסרטונים היפים

  30. Love all that you've done with your property. For your gardening and farming you'd get a lot out of Paul Gautschi's Back To Eden Gardening. Check him out on YT – he has gardens and orchards in very similar soil/terrain (Washington State in the US). No dig, and no plowing and rich rich soil that doesn't need watering. Paul has chickens too and they are a great source of fertilizer.
    God bless.

  31. Hey Sean. Love your videos. Did you ever show how you did the floor under the wood stove? I saw where you started it but never saw the end.

  32. whenever you decided to build a cabin you need to own the land right? i dont know how canada works. and do you still require building permits? im super interested in doing something like this.


  34. король дерева……человек дерева……виртуоз по дереву…….из казахстана ….привет……здоровья вам.

  35. wonder if you’ve thought of building a simple water tank to sit by the garden and have a small pump fill it all day in the summer, let it irritate the garden. wound require hose or pipe, obviously

  36. City Life: Take Time to make the money needed to live

    Off Grid Life: Take Time to make the things needed to live
