Great video showing the fantastic work and craftsmanship involved with this build. You have a great talent and have applied it well. Congratulations on the build. Enjoy the fruits of your labor, and watch out for that mystery animal.

Max great job man. You obviously have the old time work ethic :) as well as crazy skills. Question? .... I get the sod roof … but wouldn’t the wet soil in the sod after a rain tend to rot out the planks quicker over time than say just split shakes? This guy would be proud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYJKd0rkKss Cheers

Fantastic! Hard, rugged work. Makes the rest of us, your woodworking brothers, look like sissies.

Great video Max. I’d love to come and spend some time at that cabin and help you build. Is there good fishing in the lake?

Thank you! Yes, unless you put a polymer film under the sod like I did. So, the sod protects the polymer from UV light and is a good heat insulator…
