#logcabin #bushcraft #offgrid #survival
One man leaves the city life behind to build a cheap off grid log cabin and homestead in the Canadian wilderness, including a log home, an outdoor kitchen, an outhouse, a woodshed and a sauna bathhouse. Building mostly with hand tools, Shawn James harvests building materials from the forests north of Toronto, Canada and crafts them into functional tools and shelters using traditional woodworking tools and methods. He practices bushcraft and survival skills every day, including fire starting, tree identification and harvesting, wild edible foraging, fishing, hunting, camping in the summer and winter, travelling by canoe and snowshoe, navigation and water collection and purification.
Continue watching in 2019 as Shawn finishes the sauna, plants a forest garden for fruit and vegetables, builds an underground root cellar, ice house and cheese cave, a timber frame workshop and a remote hunt camp closer to fish and game.

  • I am going to watch this tonight, now at work (coffee break), i live in Belgium and overcrowded and overpopulated country. My grandfather who died in 1997 at the ago of 99, built also his house for his family from bottom (cellar) to the roof. Not wood, but bricks. Not in the woods, in a small village. I have often asked him "how did you do that". His reply: I had to do it, so I did it. Unbelievable? But true!

  • No one knows the exact day or hour the rapture will happen is a certainty and The rapture will happen without a doubt, but there will be a revival NOW in the USA and worldwide FIRST which is what this is leading to now, many many souls turning to Christ Jesus for sure . THEN the rapture will happen after this when the last soul is brought in to Christ Jesus' protection . we are in the last days for sure( and yes a few years converts to hours and goes by quickly , and the rapture is highly likely to happen ANYTIME within the next several years OR MAYBE EVEN LESS , 3-5 years Max OR LESS If that , but no more , due to the time table has run out for Gods plan on gentile christians according to > all time lines< , references of biblical events, weather catastrophes, wars etc jewish variables ie third temple construction , red heifers being born , sacrifices starting soon etc. THE RAPTURE CAN HAPPEN NOW at ANY TIME make no mistake !! . Anywhere between 2021 -2027 the rapture can happen . The True Church of Christ Jesus will be GONE! Christ taking the Church Out of the earth is closer than many even believe . And when many millions disappear without a trace, aunts uncles friends etc what will you say then because it will happen ? Please awake to Christ Jesus which is the ONLY hope NOW and dont let yourself find out it IS all true later when its too late ...for anyone who sees this and doesnt know what to do please If you havent given your life and heart to Christ Jesus you will have REAL BIG problems way bigger than any problems you have Ever had If you are left here on earth after the Rapture . After the Rapture The USA , Worldwide , will face More evils , Inner city chaos, firearm wars etc etc ,power and water , food shortages etctec than it Has EVER been seen Before and you surely dont want to be Here then . We Have Time NOW to change , please seek Christ Jesus while there is still time to save ! no one knows the day or hour of the rapture ,But the rapture will start out just like any other day .....The Rapture will Take Place In the day In Broad daylight, sunny day , In an Instant FLASH without ANY warning , and there will be peoples Driver Ids, wallets found in various parking lots , Purses bill folds Found at work etc etc with NO explanation , and People VANISHING so No One can refute it has taken place. .The Rapture Will Take place But we may have several years left but not many more , as many are turning to Jesus and this revival taking place and many still being brought into the Glorious kingdom of Jesus and Until the last soul is accounted for , is all that is preventing the rapture from happening. We are close , Several years goes by quickly so we are very close !romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. And The antichrist is for Israel , the jews revealing NOT for the Church , and does not have to be revealed first before the rapture as many christians believe . there is nothing holding the rapture from happening Now. The antichrist is for the jews NOT the church which is the restrainer holding back the antichrist from being revealed . The church will Be GONE Before the antichrist is revealed . The church will Not even Need to know who the antichrist is as Its for only the jews , as Gods plan switches back to them once the true church believers are Gone. 2 thesss 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.8 And >then< shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

  • While I don’t intend on going the Shawn James route, there is nothing I would enjoy more than having my own getaway. I’ve been looking at land not too far away and figuring out the logistics. Even to get away to a small cabin every month and half or so would be so refreshing and rewarding. Doesn’t hurt that I already have 90% of the tools and skills needed to do so. Won’t be a log cabin, but will still be built with my own hands.
