Winter Life in the Woods | We've got cabin fever & get outside despite the below freezing temperatures... mostly to avoid doing the most challenging part of the cabin build yet! Our podcast REROOT is BACK & we'd love for you to give it a listen: . Tune in for an unfiltered chat with Eamon & Bec every single Monday -- things get spicy 🔥 🎧
► SUBSCRIBE for a new video every single Sunday
► The vlog continues on Instagram
We've escaped to the wilderness & we're building our home at a cabin in the woods ... a phrase that was very fun to say in the beautiful fall weather in Canada BUT how are we coping with these cold, winter days during a provincial wide LOCKDOWN? We've quickly learned that *STAYING SANE* while living in the woods alone is one giant hurdle BUT NOTHING is more challenging than hanging drywall in the cabin 😂
We've always envisioned moving into the woods by the lake and building our dream tiny cabin as a home base for us to come back to in between our international travels. We cannot wait to have a place to call our own!! The interior is really starting to look like a home. What will be next? Maybe it's time to consider a shipping container tiny home like Life Uncontained.
Catch up on our cabin in the woods videos:

Who are we?
We're Eamon and Bec, a Canadian couple who previously lived and traveled full-time in our self converted Sprinter Van!! When the pandemic hit earlier this year we made the difficult decision to abandon our van in Africa and fly home to Canada. Now we're here... living at a cabin in the Canadian wilderness preparing for a cold, snowy winter ahead 🥶 .

  • That looks to be oak your cutting down,it takes a long time to grow but gives off great heat when properly dried (2yrs ideally) you need to cut down the big stuff! ..please let those skinny juveniles grow. :) .Put some big 10inch thick logs in the stove in the evening (close the vent a bit),they'll smolder all night!...just do a 1hr high burn in the morning to clean the chimney and get the temps back up. Each fire is differant so tune that to what works and what you need, try to find an eco/sustainable supplier and get a ton in (about 20 ster en francaise). We lived in the Alps at 1'400mtrs for 20yrs in a cabin very similar...insulate,insulate,insulate. We had double glazing and heavy wooden shutters we closed at night,keeps you warm and mucho secure and they're pretty. Set up the roof to trap the snow if you think it can take the winter's end we'd have 30cm of snow compacted into blue glacial ice with never less than a meter of snow on that as helps to keep you warm. We ended up getting a range and had hot water + one 6ft towel drier rad running off it it was capable of 8, 1 was was easily -20c at night and we wuz toasty! plus having a cooking source on the go all day meant we made tons of jams , syrups,bread ,baking and slow cooking etc Double glaze that sun lounge some day, you'll be amazed how much warmer the living room will be and you'll find yourself spending much more time in there maximizing that natural light.. I hope you find this useful xxx

  • By the way here is another comment to get enrolled with your giveaway of the sweaters. I commented and liked! I hope I win. 🙏 I never won anything in my life before. This video will be shared to my social media accounts when I get up. I don't see a use now being not many ppl are up and online at this time. Yes I am a night 🌙 owl 🦉lol. Up all night. If I post in a time where there are more ppl awake and online my post will get more attention. I have almost 5,000 Facebook friends so I hope it will get you more subscribers from there alone. :)

  • I'm curious to know how much did you both pay for this cabin? 🤔 Reason I ask is that you both have done alot already with still alot more needing to be done on it. Definitely a fixer upper, so I hope you were not over charged. I know both of you have put alot of money 💰🤑 so far into it with still so much still needing to be done. I am happy for the both of you and I know you both are happy but so many over price things bc they are money hungry. P.s. Omgoodness adding the panda 🐼 with his carrot 🥕 at the end was a great touch. You should definitely add your video of the week/day in all of your upcoming Vlog's... Sunday Can't come fast enough. Patiently waiting for your new content. You both need to talk about posting 2 videos a week. Therefore it won't seem as long between tour posts. Lol. Maybe one on Sunday and the other on Tuesday or Wednesday. Just an idea. Also for your next giveaway I think you both need to have us share your videos. You should have alot more subscribers then you do. You both are really good USworldsr's and don't even have 1 million subscribers. I plan on sharing a couple of your videos during the day. Hopefully that helps to expand your channel a little more. I love you both and your channel. :) The only thing I'm guilty of is always forgetting to like each video. Does likeing help though? Like do you get paid for each like on your videos? Let me know bc If it does then I need to go through and like them all, lmao.

  • Just a tip. You don’t normally insulate interior walls. You want the heat to be able to penetrate the wall and heat the room.

  • Did everyone forget about Rojo? Eamon & Bec are completely capable of loving a foster pup, and finding it a loving home. All these comments telling them to keep Mossa is really detrimental to their cause.
