This is the incredible story of a father and his son who set the audacious goal of building a tiny pioneer-style log cabin, in Alaska, in only 15 days.
Is it even possible to do that? Well, I suppose we will find out, but this old boy and his son sure think they can, and you know what, who’s stopping them? Enjoy below and who knows, you may learn a little something about logging.

Father/Son Building Log Cabin Together
They made a crazy goal, and they did the most important thing… They got to work!
They hauled the logs by hand to the construction site.
Looks like they’re having fun, and they got the floor finished, too.
They don’t have to pay for many materials since they’re using wood from their own land. How cool is that?
Look at them working hard, carrying the logs to the site. They will NEVER forget this. It’s a family legacy, what they are building here.
Nothing the logs. Does this look like fun to you?
This is hard work, but the progress feels really good.
Nothing like a good old hammer.
Even if it’s just a hammer, we must have respect and care when handling tools. They’re dangerous!
Carrying Materials to the Site Using Duck Tape! (LOL)
Nothing like a creative life hack to simplify the labor.
Framing the front door. Holy smokes, it’s becoming real. We’re building a cabin!
Major Progress in Just a Few Days
Finishing up the Front Door with Framing and Hinges
The door looks good!
Time to install the roof…
By day 15, they made it happen.

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.
