Simple off grid Cabin that anyone can build & afford

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

  • Great concept...but what keeps the disturbed soil that the circular concrete bases are situated on, from settling and compromising the entire structure? I have dealt with disturbed earth and it always settles....poking around with a wooden pole and tamping with a block will not stop settling earth. But, maybe u only need this for a few months. But great for a u tube video

  • Hey Dave, Very nice instructional video...Thanks very much for posting and for sharing your valuable knowledge and experience...Good karma to you! I particularly like your comment that humans are meant to build their own structures...Yes, for millennia, we've been building our own small structures (grass huts, shacks, cabins, stone dwellings, etc.) and living in subsistence economies where we do most things ourselves and help one another to be successful...It still goes on in many parts of the world today...Only fairly recently has labor become specialized and we've all bought into the market economy, where we feel compelled (and are often required to by government regulations) to depend on "professionals" and are reluctant to do may things ourselves...Let's all push back and reclaim our true, original nature. Namaste. Cheers! P.S. Might you have a list of the tools and materials that you used to build this lovely 10' x 12' cabin?

    • Depends where. Near cities, pretty expensive. In back country, cheaper. You still need to come up with taxes every year. Sometimes people give away land for free (still need to pay taxes). It's usually swamp type shit.

  • Just stumbled across your videos looking for something on shed building. I’m a city suburb dweller in SoCal looking to build a quiet place to hang, out of the house but out of the weather, at the back of my property.(maybe 70 feet from the house). Nice job on the video. Simple plans, simple directions, simple techniques, nice narration, easy to understand yet thorough. I’m pushing 65, work as an upholsterer, good with my hands. I think your right, it’s do-able, even at my age. Thanks for your efforts. I’m enjoying the girl outdoor series as well......

  • Well done! The only things I saw that I would have done differently is cut the siding to fit over the depth of the floor structure. That would really prevent any wind driven rain infiltration into the floor structure, help keep the air in the floor cavity still, and thus work better as an insulating cavity. From the looks of it, it looks like you extended the roof well enough out from the face of the exterior wall, but I would have also extended it out a bit further on the wide-window window side wall, that faces the view that's so great. Again, that would help prevent wind driven rain from infiltrating where the wall meets the roof.

  • When I first arrived in the US in 1991, I rented a room in a house in Henrietta, NY. I asked the landlord, a Caucasian Rochester native, if he built the house. The answer kind of surprised me back then. He said he had the builder built it. I thought people would actually build their own house in the US. Can't recall where I got that impression, maybe Disney cartoon. In reality, that's not the case.

  • Many places won't allow something this small to be lived in longer than a few weeks before they consider it a "main residence" and will either require you to add square footage, or not allow you to live in it for long periods of time. Don't let the down payment/mortgage and taxes fool you. You only THINK you own your land.

  • Great instructional presentation but a question: Was there a reason for not extending your siding below the bottom plate of the outer walls, or using flashing behind the siding, to prevent water and air intrusion at the base of the walls? -- covering the joint of rim/sub-floor/wall and giving a draft stop and water shed transition.
