In this video my wife Brooke and I build a very simple, very affordable cabin. With a simple single pitch roof and only 2 windows. While I was filming this building project so was Brooke. You can check out her first video featuring this cabin by clicking the link below. I'll see you on part 2

  • Like your simple approach to building a little house. I am very poor but have a minimum wage job. I live in my car. If I can find a place to build one, I will. I need a place to live and would rather build it myself.

  • Does anyone have recommendations for learning the basics on building. Where do I go, what books do I read etc. This is incredibly helpful and I want to do this but I know 0 about the basics like where would I put the nails, what quality materials would I need etc

    • Sheet good like plywood and drywall come in 4'x8' you need to use a 12 on center,16" OC or 24" OC layout so that when you nail on plywood the sheet ends in the middle of a framing member and you can continue with another sheet......nailing the edges of two sheets to the same stud or joist

  • I love how people who know how to do stuff tell you how easy it is and “anyone can do it.” Sorry but we don’t all have a property with the perfect corner to build a cabin on with grandpa’s old saw. Even the simplest construction takes material, know-how and money. So no, not everyone can do it and not everyone can afford. You can.

  • Lost me immediately at location. I'm sure 98% of other people watching don't have property in their backyard (or any property) for something like this. I'd like a video explaining how to find an affordable lot and how to navigate building codes and legality surrounding this stuff, bc that's the hardest part.

  • Do you need planning approval? Here in Australia we are not allowed to build any building without local authority approval after formal application. Any dwelling has to meet many regulations, fire rating, energy rating, effluent management (toilet and wastewater), engineering certification etc etc. I own a property in a remote rural area and I can't even add a 'lean-to' on my properly approved and professionaly built shed without further building permits and approvals. I am only allowed to stay a maximum of 3 days of every month on "my" property because there is no house, even if I use a mobile home that contains all waste water produced. What you have built is great but would never be permitted as a habitation. Also any "owner builder" who builds his own structures has to be registered and follow strict guidelines, for instance you would need to restrict access via warning signage and fencing whilst constructing (even in the middle of nowhere). Local authorities actively use satellite imagery, aircraft imagery and even drones to survey properties, so you can't hide your building activities. It's great living in a free western democracy.
