Overnight in the Off Grid Cabin: Alone with my Dog
Join me for an overnight with my dog in the cheap off grid pallet wood cabin which we built for free using recycled pallets. I spend the night alone in the cabin with my dog, spending time connecting with nature and the surrounding wilderness. Being in the tiny house with nothing but simple tools, a warm fire and some good food is sometimes all that is needed in life. I fire up the woodstove and cook soup, bake bread in the pipe oven and cook on cast iron. Being able to go off grid and switch off from the busy city life and busy materialistic consumerist world that we live in makes me feel free. I've always enjoyed camping in the woods, practicising bushcraft and survival skills and learning primitive ways of living. Back in 2018 my dad and I had the idea of building a cabin from pallet wood. We wanted to see how cheap we could build a homestead, using free pallets and we even recycled the old rusty nails. The pallet wood cabin is still going strong, and although I have now moved further away from it, I hope to be back there this year to spend more nights alone in the forest with just my thoughts. Thank you for watching.

My dream life.
This is the best channel on YouTube.
But where was his dog? Didn’t see him the whole vid.
@Dusty Cole Eh ? How can you not have seen the cute little Jaxx ? He’s there big-time from the second section onwards.
@Dusty Cole then you didn’t watch the whole video.
You know what mike, these are the ones I love the most. It’s something we can all make. Not that the other builds were impossible but this one feels more homely. Take care.
It seems ‘homely’ and the pallet wood can be bought on-line in the US. Add the G-stove and your favorite dog and we are ‘good to go!’
I want to build a cabin like this.
Nitin Santhosh yeah same
This must be one of the most relaxing things that you can do… just a night alone in a cozy little pallet cabin with man’s best friend. Totally aswesome video yet again brother! Keep up the hard work! 👍👍
It really is man!
Until you start getting knocks around your cabin late at night
@Skid Skid 😂😂 oh come on… a little company never hurt anybody… or has it? 🤔
Broke Boys Bushcraft I just don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night hearing “Ch Ch Ch Ah Ah Ah” 😬
@Skid Skid 😂😂 hope this wasn’t filmed on a friday of the 13th day of the month…
Highlights of my trips to the Cabin we built from free Pallet Wood. Hoping to head back here soon! Working on the bunker still, as well as part 3 of the Celtic Roundhouse!
please tell me the name of the track on 7:00!
This was so enjoyable to watch Mike. Love the featured music to. Awesome 😊
A company just opened a pallet factory about two miles from me. I think I know who is responsible for the supply deficit in the market.
On a TV show about bad contractors, a wall was opened up and the home owner complained some of the wood came from pallets. I wanted the contractor to say, but the wood is imported.
On another TV show, agricultural inspectors were checking pallets from Mexico to make sure they weren’t importing pests. Apparently, the pallets have to be cooked at a certain temperature over a period of time. At one point, pallets carrying the Formosan Termites ended up at the Port of New Orleans and now we have them.
Nicest stove I’ve seen in any cabin!
@John Q. Public I thought that too! I believe dogs can eat natural food, not stuff out of tins so something could have been given in keeping with the spirit of it all.
I thought about building one of these but up in the trees.
Yeah especially when you have to take a dump and it falls on the ground from way up there!
@Bababooey 126 SPLATT
Yes and pull the ladder up at night and u know ure more safe than on the ground.
I would love to be up in the trees
@Marty Martin Everything climbs trees. Bears are good at it.
this look super peaceful, and I’d love to go out and make myself a cabin of the same sort some day! Also great video, keep up the good work!
I’m sure it was rewarding to make and complete the cabin, and also a great place to escape and enjoy the outdoors.
Escape to his back yard.
Another great video. And I couldn’t agree with you more sometimes we need to get away from the hustle of the city life and get back to simpler way of life .
I love your pallet cabin shows
Awesome vid. Your vids have inspired me to go and adventure in the woods and experience the outdoors more
This video just emphasises less is more in so many ways , really enjoyed just watching things happen and taking in the natural noise around you , thank you
I love him he’s so dang cute. Pulling the root out of the ground. So precious.
He sure is cute! You can see he was really… rooting… for his human!
You know, just watching this made me feel relaxed, what with this & your bunker, it needs to be a netflix show so I can binge watch.
I always enjoy this little cabin. I started watching when you and your dad were building it.
3:23 Mike likes a bit of bread roll with his butter, I see! ;0)
All that crap written about cholesterol is mostly based on flawed studies. Your brain needs (bad!!) cholesterol to function properly and there’s nothing worse than taking “statins” to destroy your memory! Eat what you like but everything in moderation and taking pills is not the answer….Those sausage butties looked good……
@Widey xyz I’m on statins now, in heart Failure for the last 12 years, and you’re right, short/long term memory is out of step with wht I used to be. It sucks big time.
@John Quinn I feel for you bro….My GP wanted to put me on statins when I hit 50 he said it was because I was entering the stage in my life where I was at risk!!! I flatly refused to have them and that was nearly 6 years ago and my latest cholesterol blood test is fine! I can’t stand margarine and use butter in all my cooking…..GPs are to ready to give pills out like sweets without looking at the big picture or the alternatives….And don’t even get me started on the ridiculous targets for Blood pressure they set for people!!!!!
But he forgot the HP sauce for his bacon butties 😉
John Quinn That’ll explain my recent memory loss. Been on statins the last two years and my short term memory has become awful
That little stove, and all of it’s attachments, is pure genius. Utilizing more of the energy, than merely the heat. Fabulous.
And Jax always makes me snicker and smile. I really needed that today. Thanks for taking us along.
Honestly I could live in that cabin
