Brothers & Dad Build Off-Grid Cabin in the Woods

This post contains affiliate links.

You might remember when these brothers and their dad built a truck camper for just $1,000! Well, they’re back at it, but this time they’ve built an entire off-grid cabin by a creek in the woods.

The cabin has a whole solar set-up, a clever pump that draws water from the creek, and a spacious loft bedroom with a full-sized bed. They even added a porch swing to the covered deck to finish off the space. Are you inspired?
