This is how we built an entire small off grid cabin from start to finish using a portable sawmill. My Gear (Shop and Support):


Norwood Portable Sawmill:

Vic West (Roof):

We show everything from setting and digging the pillars, cutting the 2×4’s, ripping siding, cutting roof trusses, installing the metal roof, installing windows, chimney, wood stove, decking and building the front door.

We use a Norwood hd36 portable sawmill to make nearly all the materials for this build from locally sourced timbers.

We use ash, cedar, and pine for most of the structure and siding.

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.
