ever since I was little I’ve dreamed of escaping to a beautiful little cabin somewhere in the middle of a gorgeous forest and here in the Pacific Northwest I have now met a builder who is constructing incredible homes that not even my childhood self could have dreamed of [Music] hey Jacob what’s up Bryce good you make a man to meet you to this cabin it’s hard to call it a cabin really isn’t it I want to actually just call it ah it’s kind of like a sculpture that you live in I guess yeah that’s what I go for when I try to build this try to make a sculpture that people can live in and exist in I wanted to make a space that people could be in and I had this vision in my head of of what a building would look like and ever since I was a kid I had this little book about tiny houses and it’s called Wood butcher’s art I think and I just thought fairies and hobbits and goblins lived there and I wanted to do it myself and make some in my adult life too I guess and I want the shelter to tell a tale and and kind of show itself as a painting almost so when you walk up on it I want you to be stunned by it the same way you would be stunned by a waterfall or stunned by a mountain when you see one I want people to look when they first kind of lay eyes on something I’ve made I want them to go wow that’s so cool that’s what I want and I guess if that’s what art is then its art so you know art that you live in how did this project actually come to be I met someone who lived in one of these cabins and I completely fell in love with the girl in the cabins and uh-huh I started living in him and so I went from one cabin to the next and lived for a while in each one and then started to think like I could build a cabin and so I asked the property owner and I built here that’s how it came to be I guess I just I went for it one of the things that’s really striking to me about this Kevin is how it looks like it’s just meant to be here i won I wanted to make it look like it was part of the environment that’s part of the goal but not you know like sort of the touch of a human but still kind of honoring what what the environment is around it and that’s especially true of what you’ve done with this because the way that you eventually covered it with all of the moss how did you even do that is there a middle roof under there so this is so with this cabin in particular I wanted the framing of the roof to be exposed because the inside has this really cool beam system and rafter system and I wanted you to see the pattern that created so I started by just you know frame the rafters frame the boards for the sheathing and everything is salvaged from different places different job sites this is like an old bowling alley with the deck and the beams came from a building in Tacoma Washington so back to the roof though there’s the sheathing and then I laid weather resistant solid insulation on top of the sheathing on the outside then put strapping on it then put metal roofing on it then put chicken wire on it and then went around and I like you know foraged for it moss and there’s you know in this forest there’s moss everywhere so just kind of collected moss a little bit from different trees so as not to kind of take too much from one place and then you just take the you take the moss and you kind of stuff it in the chicken wire and it just kind of grows together so you stuff a few spots and then it kind of weaves and grows amongst itself and takes off this was kind of I wanted it to be a cruciform because I really thought that a cross like shape would really look cool for the roof and I think churches and cathedrals are really amazing often a lot of energy is put into building them and I love the angles on churches and so this was kind of supposed to be like a cathedral in the middle of the rainforest that’s what I was kind of going for a non-denominational secular Cathedral you can worship anything you want out in this Cathedral in the forest but that’s kind of what I was going for with the steep roof pitches if I remember correctly this is a twelve twelve maybe even slightly steeper but then these side ones are 72 degrees they’re like very very steep the other thing that really stands out to me is the way that you’ve used all of these windows the thing that these are all reclaimed this makes it all the more impressive you have to be willing to let the material guide the building as opposed to you forcing the the materials upon the building if that makes sense so like this wall was framed out based on what that window was and what those little windows were and I like how it’s different I like how it’s not cookie cutter so what was your agreement for building it here on this property the agreement was I provide the labor and provide a finished liveable space and I get access to it for two years and I finished it the day I left because I mean so I never really got to enjoy a complete I mean me being done with the building is really different than the building itself being finished when I walked out of here eight years ago I was finished but the building wasn’t and since I’ve left people have added all sorts of things I think the dude has like a jacuzzi or something like that I mean in this little fireplace my fire pit was nowhere near as good as that fire pit but to have people care about it enough that they want to put their own touches into it that’s awesome and you think we can take a look in some definitely let’s do it come in you know from the outside this kind of looks like a whimsical cabin in the woods but stepping inside it’s all of a sudden become a home home that’s the word it’s impossible as well to ignore the location and we’re right here in the middle of the beautiful Pacific Northwest forest and I mean I can imagine sitting down and that sofa it must still feel like you’re connected to the outdoors yeah I mean there’s just like veils of Moss everywhere and six different kinds of ferns and you know giant trees it’s it’s hard not to feel in awe of the landscape when you’re here so can you tell me a little bit more about the actual construction of this house the design and how all of this came to be the way that it is now I always start with the floor with this one I wanted to be a cruciform which is just you know into 90 degrees you’re also limited by space so it had to be under 200 square feet to avoid having to pull permits so that’s where I started and then the walls grew out of there and all the materials are salvaged so that’s where the kitchen sink came from and that whole countertop this is our V stove so I think I got this on Craigslist these were all scraps you know I’ve used every single little piece what do you think really influenced the style of how you built this cabin like all of these really beautiful exposed beams and all of that sort of thing I mean a main focus for me was what the the roof and I can take you up to the law you can see another really like maybe one of the most essential things that went into my thinking about this cabin was wanting to leave all of the framing exposed like one thing that kind of always has bothered me is that in building we always cover up the skeleton you know the skeleton has covered up on the inside it’s covered up on the outside but the skeleton is cool you know like ribs and everything and so that’s kind of what this affected I’m was trying to go for was I wanted you to see what it is that’s holding you up and what’s holding us up are these two big beams that are kind of more ‘test into each other and then these jack rafters and valley rafters and they’re essentially like the ribs I talked about it like it’s a person but there are the ribs of the cabin and I really love what you’ve done to be here with the roof window as well because that’s just so perfectly placed this guy like yeah thanks well yeah you know I knew that this is where people would be sleeping and I knew that I didn’t know but I anticipated that that’s where you would place your head and so I thought you know thinking like when you wake up in the morning that’s where you’re gonna give you know you like this and you kind of took your head over and boom there’s where it is a project like this is naturally gonna be really hard to gauge because obviously so much time effort labor went into it but if we’re talking just about material cost of this project what did it actually physically cost you to build the original arrangement was I think I got 2000 from him the property owner and then I put about four thousand into it maybe and then since then Cullen has put the water and the electric I think he put another 1,500 into it so all in all maybe 75 hundred bucks for me that’s really inspiring because I think it goes to show that if you find an amiable landowner if you’re not afraid of putting a little bit of work and effort into it mm-hmm this is a really achievable dream isn’t it oh I would say the land is the biggest thing if you can find someone who owns property because you know property is not easy to come by but if you can find that property someone who’s willing to let you build anyone could do it I didn’t really know what I was doing when I started and through doing it and making mistakes I think I learned it and you’re actually building another one here on this property on you yeah right down the way through the woods well should we go over together let’s checking all right let’s to the forest [Music] so this is my latest and I haven’t finished it yet so no it’s not done but I’ve put about 22 days into it the kind of inspiration for it was a octagons and then I wanted to make a pyramid roof and when I finished it I kind of it kind of looks like a crown kind of looks like Max’s crown and where the wild things are so sometimes I’ve been taking the call in it Max’s crown and you know one of my favorite things is to after I do something or put a piece up to kind of stumble back and then turn around and look I can surprise myself by it and you’re like oh man there it is Wow and you know when I look at my hands I kind of feel like it’s they kind of tell the history of the whole thing because of just what what they’ve done how they’ve gotten hurt what they’ve created and it’s awesome I love building I don’t know what I like more building it or looking at it after I built it or looking at other people enjoy it that I think is the best one other when I see other people and they’re enjoying a space that I’ve created I feel like I’ve done something pretty special seeing what you’ve done here in this place is just so inspiring to me the way that you have crafted everything so beautifully using these incredibly innate geometric patterns the structures that you have built are just completely remarkable and we’re gonna come back and visit this place I’m not gonna say when it’s finished right but when you’re further down the track yeah and we’re gonna see what this is could become yeah we’ll ask him you’re welcome to stay here any time so please come back thank you so much yeah take care when I travel to this property I knew that I was coming here to see something very special but I wasn’t quite prepared for just how taken aback I would be by these cabins there’s something about the way that they’ve been constructed and how they so perfectly fit into this beautiful natural surroundings that makes me think of them not just as homes that truly works of art if only everything in life was crafted just so beautifully [Music] you

    It's in the middle of the forest with little to no sunlight shining on the houses. How did they deal with the moisture and mold problems? It might not be an issue yet, but give it 5-10 more years, and dealing with the mold is going to be hella expensive, if it's not countered somehow. Guy sounds kinda pretentious, but this is a cool idea as long as you have a way to deal with the mold problem.

    So he built it on someone’s property and all he got out of it was 2 years with it and then he had to leave? He didn’t even get to finish it?! Let alone live in it?! Sounds like the shittiest deal I’ve ever heard! Imho, you should buy the property first. Then build. And if you can’t buy the property, then you’ve got to negotiate a better deal than that for yourself. That’s way too much work and money spent to never even get to live in something you worked so hard to make. The property owner negotiated a helluva deal for himself.

    Man this guy's heart is in the right place but business wise i think he's really selling himself short.
    I get the minamilastic design and all that but depending on the legality of building real estate in the forest (lol), maybe if he made it larger than that under the code limit, and maybe if he sourced material that isn't second hand, i think people would be willing to pay A LOT of money for a place like that first cabin.
