Since many of you are also into log cabins I thought you would enjoy this post.
It’s about a father and his son who set a goal to build a tiny pioneer log cabin in Alaska within 15 days.
Is that even possible? Well, let’s find out. Why just 15 days? Because that’s how much time they have between their schedules.
So what do you think, will they meet their goal or will they come up a few days short of time? Read below to find out!
I’ll also show you how to notch logs when building a log cabin.
Hauling Logs by Hand to the Construction Site

Progress: It Feels so Good
Carrying Materials to the Site Using Duck Tape! (LOL)

Day 15: Progress so Far

Really Tiny Log Cabin on a Budget
So on day 15 they unfortunately ran out of time and while they didn’t finish they made major progress in a short period of time. I’m really impressed especially since these guys are NOT builders.
In a short period of time they were able to get the walls up, roof plank and the swinging front door with a coat of polyurethane.
So what do they have left when they come back again for their next trip? They plan on adding windows and finishing up the roof. So close to the finish line, right? But they both deserve a pat on the back in my opinion.
