Last summer I made a small log cabin for my family from a 100 years old bath house.
While the bigger house will be built – the small cabin will be a good shelter for us.
Here are some retrospective of how the cabin has been made:

Thanks DaddyT. It is very good microclimate in the log and full timber houses. No moisture, fresh air and very good sleeping time full of sweet dreams..

Looks like a lot of hard work that you put into this project. Thanks for the video as it gave me a much more appreciation for your project. The project is cool but the time lapse presentation tells it all. Hats off to you.

I cant speak for everyone but thats a real home. At first i was amazed at the work involved. Which appears to be like no small task.By the time the video had reached it’s conclususion i was in awe over the beautiful home you have built for your family.
I ‘ve lived in 2 homes built by my father. We have since moved on and grown up but those homes live in me now.
Congratulations on your achievements and your growing family.

It’s an awesome video, Jacob, and very moving.

OK Ive watched this 7 times already lol. Did you reuse the bricks from the first site? And is that moss your putting between the logs? I cant get over the quality of the video! Did you do it yourself?

Hey DaddyT. The bricks for the interior wall are recycled from a 150 years old chimney. The bricks for the new chimney was new. Yes it is moss between the logs – it is called here – “white moss” and it grows only in marsh. It is our traditional material used between the logs. The video I made by myself.

Very strong and sturdy cabin built with and filled with love, you can not get better than that. You can do better work with that ax, than I can with a timber chisel. I like that fireplace in the middle of the cabin sothat the chimney heats the house instead of the outdoors. That is the first wood shingle roof I have seenbuilt in that fashion, a roof like that must last for a long time. I like that self rocking cradle, if the little onegets restless, it would tend to rock itself. Thank you for sharing, and may you and your family have many happy years ahead of you.

I’m kind of overwhelmed by this, desperately wanting more pictures. I’m a log cabin maniac and we’re contemplating doing something similar with another property. I’m shocked and amazed.
