The Off Grid Pallet Wood Cabin build in the Forest continues. The aim of this wilderness project is to try and build a one man off-grid tiny house using free reclaimed pallet wood.
The first stage of the build was to create a wood based platform or foundations for the cabin. We then built the side walls and frame for the cabin. This episode focuses on the cabin roof and how we went about building the roof.

One of the main aims was to create a father/son project that they could work together on, and in that aspect they succeeded admirably. It’s not all about housing. Similarly, yesterday’s blog post was primarily about a student providing affordable housing for himself not as much as about tiny houses.
That’s the stuff I like to see!
Things family can do together, things people can afford, things people can make on their own that are better done when not mass produced in plastic molds…
People need very little to survive but when born into such a coddled and tech rich environment people regress because instead of using a tool to make life easier they think using a tool is tough and consider luxuries like constant supply running hot water as a need…
Tech is good, I don’t make my own nails or manufacture my own micromesh 0.1 micron water filter but if you can’t add without a calculator and don’t know things in dirty water can do more than be icky you are either carrying someone’s child or you are going to die if even basic utilities have issues for an extended period.
I’m not a survival genius but if cellphones stop working (let’s hope…) I can tie a knot in a string between two cans.
