POWER at the OFF GRID CABIN! | Generator, Electrical, Buttoning Up, Guests Ep3

In this episode we work hard to seal up the cabin from the elements with screws, spray foam and tar paper.

In between guests to the small cabin, we install the electrical wiring fed from our Briggs and Stratton Q6500 generator.

We build a small outbuilding up and away from the cabin to house the generator and protect it from the elements using reclaimed materials from pallets. metal roofing from a neighbor and cedar siding the was left over from our main cabin build.

Our 6500 generator should be plenty of power to run our lights and small electrical needs in the cabin.

As always we are using our HD36 Norwood Portable Sawmill.

A big struggle with our cabin is keeping it warm using natural materials that are inherently leaky. So we really need to close in all the gaps.

Whenever we run out of lumber, we just mill more wood from trees that are right on the property. We’ll use handtools like hammers, axes, saw, shovels and prybars, but will also use power tools including chainsaws, winches, atv’s, and a chopped up SUV whenever it is convenient.

We will be using cedar and spruce trees that are standing dead so we don’t have to kiln dry the wood or let it season.

Please follow along with the full playlist in order to understand the full construction of the tiny cabin.

In this series we use materials around us to construct a small forest cabin.

We’ll use cedar, pine, ash, maple, and whatever else we can scrounge up from the 30 acres around us. The aim is to avoid using as much store bought material as possible and keep the budget reasonably low.

Originally we set a budget of $1000, but that included the use of a frame from an old camper trailer. As we build, the budget will remain flexible in effort to produce a cabin that we are proud of and one that will last a long while, be comfortable, and sleep real human beings.
