One Year Alone in Forest of Sweden | Building Log Cabin like our Forefathers

Sometimes we hear a call from nature. When I was 18 years old I ventured out alone with only a backpack full of simple hand tools to actualize my dream. Build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish wilderness. Just like our Forefathers did.
I had no previous experience in building, gathering materials or filming. So I started studying myself the old arts and learning from my grandfather and mentor Åke Nilsson. I began to cut down trees and film with my phone, learning as I go. My project started full time once I graduated high school in summer 2019. I filmed everything myself and edited this video so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do.
The tractor is a Ferguson TE20 "Grålle" from 1946, they were wildly used to move timber. In 1950 the first chainsaws came to Sweden but they were too big and heavy to be practical. I didn't want to take down every closest tree. So by using the tractor (also as a little tribute) I could haul a few trees from further away, about 150 meters. I would have loved to use a horse but don't have one. yet..

Please share this video with someone who would enjoy it after the year 2020.

Good job young man Erik ! You have all my consideration and respect for your courage to start such a project. Most of all i believe that human kind slowly but surely will come back to origins. Somehow our actions will lead to this, sooner or later .... we shall see. Measuring twice and cutting once, this is the way. Skills comes in time with lot of practice and repeating. My grandpa use to build wooden houses using the same tools and never fail in his actions. And i know that it is not easy to handle wood. Your patience, directions, suport and help recieved from your family were good enough to motivate and keep you focus to come at the end of construction of your dreamcabin. I apreciate that you have replanted a lot of trees instead those you have cuttin down. Congrats !! Taking care of nature means life. Never disrespect mother-nature, because we need it. Keep it this way till the finish line. I am waiting to see you there. Good luck ! Big like from me.

And through another comment I read here, I got amazing self-knowledge on top of that ...... [the other comment was: Asian people: we can build out of mud Swedish people: we can build out of wood Me: cardboard] That was when I realized this about myself, because I never thought about it that much: Me: I can build from my thoughts! (TRUTH! That's why I'm sitting at a PC - on a large piece of garden by a river, with two houses on it and my own water well! Without which I would be known in systemic terms. Non-persona. Creation by mind! I think that I find what has been seen here stunning - and now I am certain: since I am a lot more advanced than this person to be seen here, I seem to be a stunning being too! Manifestation through mind/spirit. Thanks also for this perception through this video of my own being.)

Alice looks super wise and balanced! Suitable for this incredibly wonderful family that I wished for billions! "Real human craft is` absolutely` irreplaceable "! This is a kind of war with oneself (mentally and energetically) rather than with ugly weapons against one's neighbor. Congratulations to ALL OF US - that we still have such "REAL PEOPLE" to live among us! Otherwise we would be lost as a species. Thank you for this great video.

What's the significance of this project? Still using modern tools(complicated modern ax, drills, chisels, gauges, ski, sleigh, tractor, trailer), materials(cement, ropes, premade wood board, sleeping bag) and food(butters, flours). Most of these tools I do not have even now! The only meaning of the project is, he spent one year, used lot of strength, built a pretty good cabin based on non electric tools, all by himself alone. Maybe it signifies more if he lives in a forest lonely for one year with a simple pot, knife and a hammer(like what normal people can have in my country now) or even without any premade tools except clothes.
Don't put other people down just because you feel shit about yourself. Go do something to make you feel better about yourself instead.
