Man Builds Epic Off-Grid Log Cabin to Escape the Stress of City Life

By Natural Blaze

Shawn James couldn’t take it anymore. A normal job in the city wasn’t for him. One day he quit working, cashed in his savings, and headed to the Canadian wilderness to become self-reliant. First, he needed a place to live. With nothing more than hand tools, Mr. James built an epic off-grid log cabin.

James retired from work at 44 years old. He paid off his debt and sold his home in the city. Now he’s living the dream! A wilderness lifestyle!

Now James makes an income from documenting his off-grid adventure on YouTube.

His Golden Retriever “Cali” keeps him from getting lonely in the forest.

It’s amazing what one man can build with basic hand tools.

Here’s a look at the inside of the log cabin.

There is no wasted space. Even the side of the cabin acts as a tool shed.

Mr. James added an outdoor kitchen complete with a clay mud oven for baking. He used it to cook a turkey to perfection.

Watch the short video below to see how Shawn built the log cabin with hand tools.
