How To Build A Cozy Log Cabin For Less Than $500

Here’s an interesting video from The Outsider that leads us through the building of a simple 10′ x 10′ log cabin in a cold climate. The project is reported to have taken 8 months and used 52 logs.

It’s interesting to learn that the builder had no previous construction experience – but studied a bunch of tutorials and ‘learned as he went along’. This illustrates that a log cabin is a project that many people could undertake! He had volunteer assistance from his local church and scout group.

The logs were fitted together using a simple square notch as opposed to a saddle notch. The floor is seriously thick – using 2 1/4″ rough cut poplar. We can see that there are some man-made materials – for example the tarp roof. Plywood and 2x4s are used judiciously where needed, for example in the sub floor.

The real excitement is learning that the cabin cost under $500. I’m happy to learn that – and I much prefer this “low tech” approach, as opposed to buying an overpriced ‘tiny house’. Low cost housing is something that can really free you to enjoy living rather than slaving way at some job you hate just to hand the money over at the end of the day.

Sourcing reclaimed windows is a fantastic way to save money. There are always mountains of these available at reclamation yards.

The loft space is accessed via a rudimentary ladder that looks like it is build from 2×4 pieces. If you are attempting to make a ladder like this, I would use screws not nails. While the ground floor is 10’x10′, the overhang of the loft space over the front door makes it 10’x16′.

Overall, a cabin like this would make a great forest hideout for camping adventures and escaping from the busy world for a while but it would need much more in the way of facilities if it were to be used for long stays. There’s no running water, no shower, no toilet, no electrics; but given time, investment (and perhaps a bigger cabin) you could of course put these things in.

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...
