No bugs or insects either. Clearly there is something to be learned from their traditional building techniques.
- If I didn't make it bigger, I would have at least designed it in a way that it can be modified and expanded in the future easily.

The next video: How to build a log cabin for free.

If life in a log cabin interests you, please check out his other videos on "My Self Reliance". I found them to be very informative.
