We're going to spend today at the Simple Off Grid Cabin we built last fall. Winter is almost over an the snow is melting. What better thing to do than to spend a day hanging out at our tiny off grid cabin. Let split some wood, cook some breakfast, and enjoy life

I’ve struggled with depression for years. My anxiety boils over almost everyday. I try to change what causes it, but it seems to be engrained into me now. I feel like I get better everyday. Channel’s like this go a long way to soothe me. It means more than I can say. Thank you.

D.T. I know what you mean. Although I don't suffer from depression I am 74 years young, 2 artificial hips, arthritis in my hands and other so called handicaps I still have my way to cope. I believe in the Lord and I have one fantastic wife that supports me in everything I do (married 47 years). Just believe in yourself and the things of the outer environment will not close in around you. Dave and Brook are fantastic roll models to follow. No matter what age you are or whatever physical or mental position you may think you are in. Please have and cherish that, "I can do attitude", and you can accomplish just about anything that life throws at you. Who ever thought I would be camping at 74 going on 75, that's 68 years enjoying the outdoors in a tent. Although we did buy our first camper in 2020 and since then that C hit and now gas prices, we are still looking forward to getting out and seeing the things you would never see looking out the windows in your sticks and bricks home. I hope you do see this and have that feeling of HOPE my friend. God Bless and hang in there.

I will pray that Yehovah Tzeva'ot will protect you under His wing!! You will love the channel Liziqi. I have severe PTSD! God promised me that He will heal me! I also watch Kevin LA Ewing on spiritual Warfare! He taught me how to fight! I pray the blood of Yeshua Ha Massiach over you! Amen and Amen! Love from South Africa

Thanks Dave! My wife and I just bought 76 acres. We are currently clearing the home site that sits about 3200 ft. in elevation. And I have been thinking that I want to build a small cabin like yours on the top of the Mountain (about 4000 ft. in elevation) that has amazing views of the town and some of the valleys. This little cabin would be perfect. I am sure I won't get to it this year as I am trying to get enough done to get our RV on the property once the well and septic is done. To get out of the RV park since we sold our home to create this new adventure. While it can be scary to sell the comforts of our home to move into an RV and build a house over the next few years. My wife and I know it will be worth it! I hope to create something that my grandkids can enjoy! I have to agree with another comment your voice is very calming and perfect for a story. I have a job that is very stressful in this day and age. So, I am always looking for a place to be calm and quite. Our land is just perfect for that. So, keep up the videos!

Hi, Dave and Brooke! I'm a big fan of both your channels, and now I'm saving money to build a 10x12 cabin inspired by yours. Thank you for your guidance and motivation! I'm planning to make the walls 12' tall on the front and 10' tall on the back so I can add a loft. Since I saw your conversation about the hanging chair adding weight to the structure, I'm thinking I might need a bigger foundation to support the taller build. Do you have any suggestions for what kind of foundation you'd use for a cabin like yours but with some extra height and a loft?

Dave, I think you and your family are pretty awesome. I’d so love to introduce my family into something like this but they’re way to “technologically” involved. Myself, I gave up social media years ago and haven’t looked back! The closest thing to social media is TRpost here and there. I really enjoy your humility, humbleness and the little bit of spirituality you show. Also, I always happen to have an “extra” egg for my woof. Love it and love the channel. From: a new subscriber.

Well I’ll tell you man, I think you’ve just about sold me on this. I’ve got some land up state on my step dads farm. NY. Maybe I can convince him to get a cabin going. I can’t thank you enough for sharing this, also just for being so honest. Dedicated and real. So very often you come across something that might just change your life. I think I found it. Again, I can’t thank you and your wife enough. This has been a great day. Just sitting back and watching how much progress you all have made. Just wonderful. Really.

Dave, very good video! I have a question, you do not seem to put any kind of barrier between the insulation and the metal roof. Have you ever had a moisture problem in that spot from condensation of the metal -- specifically the insulation getting wet and dripping into ceiling?

Great for the soul, watching this series of videos. I have very few building skills, but will have a try at creating one of these cabins for myself over the next summer. I live on two acres of land, and in New Zealand we are allowed to build up to 300 square feet without a permit.

Thank you for the video. Have you considered adding simple water harvesting system to your cabin as you have the kind of roof (sheet metal) there, that you could get clean rain water at least for washing hands and dished if not for drinking? It would make your cabin a bit more self sufficient :)

I love the little cabin and that you're fellow Michiganders. I'm planning to build a simple building I'm calling my "writing cabin". I'll use it to work remotely and to get away from things when I need to. I won't do the truly remote stuff you guys do, but I really enjoy it vicariously. Both of you are engaging and free in so many ways. I love that. Thanks for sharing your world. I have to laugh at myself. After watching several videos from you both, it finally came to me that you were on Alone. My memory isn't the greatest. LOL. I loved watching that series. Stay true!

Thanks for the video. The snow in northern Wisconsin is melting fairly fast right now and start my small off grid cabin build here soon. Will be getting some help structurally from a friend that has experience in building trades but will be a great way for me to learn . All of the exterior and interior I will do myself now it's just tying the creativity together to get the look and atmosphere I want. Simple living!

Thank you! Your videos and Brooke's are a joy to watch! We have 40 rugged acres in Northern Idaho. There's a big shop with the inside still under construction and a house build soon to start. Our drive, the well and septic are now complete. I hope to build something similar to your cabin up the hill from the main house after it's all finished. A place to retreat to when life's pressures build too much, a place my wife can take friends to for an afternoon tea and gaze out on the Pend Orielle River in the distance. As your place is beautiful so is ours. It's a dream that's been a long time coming!

Do you have a prepared purchase list you could share? It would save me a bunch of time and reduce error for us once we are on the mountain site. Thank you a million!
