Video: Most Misunderstood Aspect of Simple Living

We are sharing a great video from Kalle Flodin where he explains the most misunderstood aspects of simple living. We really appreciate how unabashedly honest he is, and transparent he is about simple living.

The video contains a guide through the projects they’re working on right now and even future projects that they’re planning for years ahead. Kalle’s gonna show you the cabin he’s making into a sauna and an outdoor shower and he’s also gonna look at the wood supply and what it takes to survive a winter out there then he’s walking over to this little cabin next to his main cabin so that you can see the mess but also his big plans for this place.

He is also going to talk about the water situation that is totally getting out of hand and to wrap things up he is showing you what he is working on right now and what he is planning for the future.

Here’s an explanation for the old cabin with the short entry way: at least here in America old homesteads and cabins all have very short entrance ways. The main reason for this was self defense. If you have to stoop over to enter a building its really easy to club an intruder over the head. It puts you at a massive defensive advantage if they have to unevenly stumble through the doorway. Another reason for this is economics. Doorways are harder to make and use more materials. Especially when talking log cabins. Final reason yes people were a bit shorter.
