Wooden Roof Shelter | The FOREST KITCHEN | Off Grid Log Cabin Build | Ep.11 S1

#roof #shelter #logcabin
I build a wooden shelter with a cedar shingles roof over the clay oven this week at the off grid log cabin. Before building the wood shelter, I finish the earthen oven with another layer of mud cob and large it with a skim coat of clay and sand. Before the end of the week, I begin digging out the sand form so that the oven can start drying from the inside out. For the first time in many weeks, we get a deluge of rain that lasts a couple of days, slowing me to collect enough water to store in my rain barrels to last for several weeks. The rain recharged the pond and the stream as well.
Tune in next week to see me shingle the pavilion roof and to hear about the attempted break in at the cabin while we were inside. No, I’m not talking about wildlife.
