    The complete off grid sauna, bathhouse build from start to finish on my land in the Canadian wilderness. 12 months of Cali, my golden retriever dog, supervising and helping me build the cabin alone, mostly with traditional hand tools, dealing with harsh weather, biting insects and distracted by the incredible scenery and wildlife of Ontario, Canada.

      Great work, mister! Is 60C enough for you? In Russia, we usually heat a "sauna" at least 80, and put hats on our heads.

      1. My Self Reliance

        I prefer it hotter too, so in my new bathhouse I need to insulate it better

    8. amber tappa

      Well I'd have to say u are definitely self reliant on everything here... n ur dog loves chasing the wood chips that fling off the wood as you work. This takes alot of patience and hard work. You can see by this video u love what your doing. Amazing to watch.

    9. Mark Miller

      Trying to understand the scribing process and how you are setting the scribe to a different width each time. Are you measuring the thickness of the log at the beginning then cutting the scribe width down by half of the delta. So starting with the fat end lets say 10 inches then skinny end is 8 your scribe width would have to lessen by 1 inch? How do you determine the starting scribe width? maybe the measurement of the resting loge over the other log on the elbow? Great video, thanks!

      Can you build me a sauna ? Do you have a company? Looking to build in NC

    40. Geo. Miller

      For awhile there, I thought he was building something on his new property. But as time went on it began to look like his sauna at the primary location and I looked then to see when he published...a year ago. It’s the first compound, not the new one. I wonder if that guy who has been harassing him and his family is still at it. Can he not get some kind of legal protection from that kind of harassment ?
