One Year Alone in Forest of Sweden | Building Log Cabin like our Forefathers

Sometimes we hear a call from nature. When I was 18 years old I ventured out alone with only a backpack full of simple hand tools to actualize my dream. Build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish wilderness. Just like our Forefathers did.
I had no previous experience in building, gathering materials or filming. So I started studying myself the old arts and learning from my grandfather and mentor Åke Nilsson. I began to cut down trees and film with my phone, learning as I go. My project started full time once I graduated high school in summer 2019. I filmed everything myself and edited this video so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do.
The tractor is a Ferguson TE20 "Grålle" from 1946, they were wildly used to move timber. In 1950 the first chainsaws came to Sweden but they were too big and heavy to be practical. I didn't want to take down every closest tree. So by using the tractor (also as a little tribute) I could haul a few trees from further away, about 150 meters. I would have loved to use a horse but don't have one. yet..

Please share this video with someone who would enjoy it after the year 2020.

The only thing I am confused by is why he was putting moss into the gaps. Is it for insulations? Perhaps it acts as a sort of sealant as it rots in the gaps of the wood, or it grows instead and close up the gaps between the logs so there aren't large gaps venting air in and out? I'll have to look into this at some point.

Un año solo en el bosque de Suecia | Construyendo una cabaña de troncos como nuestros antepasados 12.355.295 visualizaciones • 3 de enero de 2021 327.842 7960 Compartir Guardar Erik Grankvist 293.000 suscriptores A veces escuchamos una llamada de la naturaleza. Cuando tenía 18 años, me aventuré a salir solo con solo una mochila llena de herramientas de mano simples para realizar mi sueño. Construya mi propia cabaña de troncos tradicional fuera de la red a mano con los materiales de la naturaleza sueca. Como hicieron nuestros antepasados. No tenía experiencia previa en construcción, recolección de materiales o filmación. Así que comencé a estudiar las artes antiguas y a aprender de mi abuelo y mentor Åke Nilsson. Comencé a talar árboles y filmar con mi teléfono, aprendiendo sobre la marcha. Mi proyecto comenzó a tiempo completo una vez que me gradué de la escuela secundaria en el verano de 2019. Filmé todo yo mismo y edité este video para que puedas seguir mi viaje y, con suerte, aprender como yo. El tractor es un Ferguson TE20 "Grålle" de 1946, se utilizaron salvajemente para mover madera. En 1950 llegaron las primeras motosierras a Suecia, pero eran demasiado grandes y pesadas para ser prácticas. No quería derribar todos los árboles más cercanos. Entonces, usando el tractor (también como un pequeño tributo) pude arrastrar algunos árboles desde más lejos, a unos 150 metros. Me hubiera encantado usar un caballo, pero no tengo uno. todavía..

Some on let this white privlage clown who I'm sure still used Mexicans from. The same home depot he bought cinder peir blocks from that dropping a 40thousand lbs house on loose aggragate you found is a HORRIBLE idea. Props for the effort. But he may as well used timber to actually make a piers to lvl and build on. SMH. I'm sure he's on California's unemployment to bank roll his Ramen and supplies lol

Hmmm. Using an axe to eyeball/hand-chop perfect vertical channels for window frames. You picked up some considerable skills along the way, there, Erik. I’m lost in admiration, sir. Many thanks for posting some of the most enjoyable hours I’ve spent on AM-posts this past year. Congratulations on the project and having such a wonderfully supportive family.
