How to make it in the wilderness certainly has its difficulties, but so does living in modern society.
Whether you are taking shelter from the elements and the harsh realities of nature, or from the stresses, panic and emergency crises of the city.
Building a cabin is a classic, timeworn and reliable way to build a shelter that can be made simply by a few men, or if necessary, by a single man alone.
It is enough to survive, but no guarantee of an easy life.
But it provides a path to a simpler life – away from the busy conundrum of idle and mostly meaningless existence inside the system.
As the man in the below video notes, “Simple offers freedom.” Indeed, the cabin life may be about as free as it gets.
He built the cabin at 10×10 deliberately, and cheaply – for $500 – allowing him to build without a permit, and enjoy the freedom of living off of his own land.
Practically everywhere in the country – suburban communities and rural lands alike – places restrictions on building that requires approval and permission. But most codes make an exception for temporary structures and those under a certain size – and that’s where you’ll have the most room to work on the project on your terms and outside of most restrictions.
