Visited the my off grid cabin over last weekend and did a bunch of finish work on it. I also took some recreational time out on the property that was a well needed rest. Painting is not my favorite job at the cabin but it is one that needs to be done. Sealing the deck on the porch also needed to be finished this year before the snow flies.

After about three years of working on my cabin and using it for long weekends I decided to install an off grid electrical system. I mostly want electrical power for lights and to run the blower on my wood stove. I can heat things up quickly if I have the little blower running. I use a generator now for power needs but I don't like to hear it running all the time. Solar power should be nice and quiet with battery storage and an inverter.

Spring fishing has given me the chance to can some wild fish. For lunch I built a fire and cooked a jar of red sucker with some veggies. Very relaxing time at the cabin.

I don't often do product reviews on my youtube channel, but i wanted to share this with one with everyone. I bought an ozone generator to help clean out the odors in my old jeep and decided to try in my cabin. I was pretty surprised at how good it worked at getting rid of that musty over winter smell.

Finally finished putting together the part#2 of So I Built A Cabin. With everything that is going on in the world, hopefully it will be a welcome distraction to you the viewer. If you have any questions or comments about the cabin built, just leave a comment and I will get back to you. All the building videos are in the cabin playlist so check them out.

This video is a series of clips and pictures from the last two years as my father and I build the log cabin. I have had a number of people suggest I make this video and I had so much footage I turned it into two videos. Sit back and enjoy. Like Subscribe and Share. Leave a comment and thanks for watching.

I spent a couple days of my long weekend at the cabin cleaning things up and getting ready for winter. I tried hunting and the last of the open water fishing but caught nothing. Weather was really nice and I enjoyed my days. Leave a comment and thanks for watching.

I went down to the Wisconsin River to take my last chance at catching some catfish before winter sets in. The river is about thirty minute away from the my cabin but is close to my house. I did alright that night although the temp started heading for freezing. I caught one walleye on chicken breast which I have never had happen before. I made lunch at the cabin the next day and it turned out really good. Any questions or comments leave them below and thanks for watching.

I have been enjoying the woods and the off-grid cabin as much as I can this fall. Spent the day hiking around looking for turkeys and geese. No luck with birds but I manage to find a hen of the woods for lunch with some wild turkey I shot a few days earlier. Thanks for watching.

It has been a long summer and I finally finished building on my cabin. I did not get the bath house built but I did buy tent to use as a shower area for fall camping. The rain drove me in to the cabin to dry off and I talk about what it looks like now that it is done. Thanks for watching.

We had a pleasant January Saturday so I decided to head out to the Cabin to clean up from Christmas. Weather was warm and icy for us and not really nice to be in the woods. I also got to make lunch on the Camp Chef cook stove and oven. It works really well as a cook stove and the oven is not bad either. I do a lo of cooking on the wood stove and outside in the fire pit but it is nice to have another source. Sit back and come along for the ride and thank you for watching.

The rains in the upper mid-west have been unstoppable. The weather has made it very hard to do anything in the woods. To get to my cabin I have to cross a swamp and right now i can only hike in with what is on my back. Hopefully soon it will dry up a bit and i can get on with my summer's projects. I did some repairs and chores even though i can not start the building of my bath house. Thanks for watching. Like subscribe and share.

Cabin Safety is a very important thing to think about and I have done alright so far. As I try to spend more time out at the cabin and I find more things to improve on and safety is a big one. I also ask the question of how to make a nature spring usable for fresh water. If you have any good ideas on developing a spring please leave them in the comments below. Enjoy the video and thanks for watching.

The Ice on the river broke up and missed it, but my hike in shows what it looks like after the high water starts to recede. Spring if starting to show us some good weather and the birds are all singing. I added up most of the costs of building my off grid cabin over the last two years and it cost much less than I thought. Any questions or comments please leave them below and i will get back to you. Like share and subscribe. It all helps out my channel and my hobby.

I managed to snowshoe out to the cabin this weekend. Did not get much work done on the building but checked on the cabin and shoveled snow out of the front and off the porch. The chinking is holding up well and there was no snow inside. I also shot my muzzle loader rifles and cast some lead balls. Had a nice time but the walk out was difficult for sure. Thanks for watching.

Took a hike down river to see if the springs are frozen into icy water falls. It has been cold and snowing but it was a nice for hiking on the ice of the river. Down river on the lake you could here the ATV races and chatted with a fellow traveler on the my walk down stream. Any questions or comments please leave them below. Thanks for watching.

Merry Christmas and Happy new year to you all. Just a quick video from the off grid cabin wishing everyone a happy holiday. I had too run the generator to power all the lights. Special thanks to Sharon and Eric for the Christmas tree that fits right in the tiny off grid cabin.

Even with the hot weather I managed to finish chinking the inside of the cabin and put in most of the floor. I did change my plans on how to do the floor and I think for the better. Part if what makes this project fun is seeing what and how I can manage to make things work out. I have learned a lot. Every year I find bear sign or get a game cam video of a bear, and this year is no different. Everyone likes the old salt block stump and Mr. bear had to check out what it was all about. Any comments or questions please leave them below and i will get back to you. Thanks for watching, like, share, and subscribe.

May has been a warm wet month this year and it is not helping me with the cabin build. With all the rain the mosquitoes have hatched and the swamps are full of water. All the water makes it hard to get material out to the cabin but I did get some work done. I still have a lot of chinking to do but at least I carried some mortar in to work with. Soon I will finish the inside floor and trim up the windows. Looking forward to getting that done. Thanks for watching.

Chinking my cabin is a very necessary part of this build, even though it is not my favorite part. The logs have dried in place and the weather is just warm enough for me to start on that process. This log structure I built is starting feel more like a cabin with every trip out to the woods. The next video I will be putting in the floor hopefully and maybe working on the outside chinking. Any questions or comments leave them below and I will get back to you. Thanks for watching.
