#sauna #logcabin #offgrid
With a bunch of guys coming over this weekend, I concentrate on making the off grid log sauna functional with a wood floor, benches and a wall to keep the heat in. It smells great (aromatic cedar) in the bathhouse when the fire is burning. This video is back to the original videos from last year - a lot of building, a little bit of scenery and some cooking. I hope you like it.
Thanks for watching! New videos every FRIDAY. Please subscribe.

I know, you aren't to excited to open your gifts in-front of the camera, but thank you for doing that. We do have fun, seeing all sorts of goodies, you can tell how much people care for you. Much needed emotion in this world, these days:) Our family loves your Chanel, for many reasons.

Just to note that it's not tar-based alcohol and don't mix pine-tar with petroleum pitch. Salmiakki is ammonium chloride, salt of ammonia. Goes well with alcohol, cough syrups, chocolate and other sweets.

Where is the septic system or outhouse-we have never seen that??? Where is the water supply? Do you have plumbing or a Poly pipe to a Cistern? Need to know! The fans need to know!

The fans know, I’ve shown and talked about both in dozens of videos.

In a banya there is a cold pool to dip into after a sauna or steam. Will you have stock tank to hop into?

The perfect lifestyle. I built a very small shed (I can't call it a cabin) at the bottom of my garden two years ago, and I'm still working on it but it doesn't come close to what you've created. It's all made of wood with pine cladding inside and some creative features, but too small to have a fire inside. I have plans to extend it though, with an equally compact sleeping area for the occasional night out. It's the closest I'll ever get to having a log cabin in a forest. It's in my garden in Ayrshire, Scotland.

Great work you've accomplished! Maybe a work bench with a pavilion would help you achieve more at ease, take care!

Omigosh maple sugar candy...My grandpa used to make it for us... I am 72 years old. You remind me of him. He also built everything and farmed with hand tools and horse power. I grew up in the woods with Grandpa....now plant perennial fruits...loved his berry patches.
