Building a Cedar Sauna in the Forest, Ep 23: Windows and Walls

#logcabin #sauna #offgrid
What an incredible week at the log cabin in the Canadian wilderness! On Sunday and Monday, we got 6 inches of snow on top of the 3 feet that still blankets the ground, but a hot sun and seasonal, mild temperatures over the following two days finally started to melt the snowpack, making for difficult walking and sledding conditions. I fire up the woodburning stove in the Finnish sauna to melt the snow on the floor, but it’s still just too cold to make melt it enough to install the wood floor. I do get one of the windows in and I build the dividing wall between the sauna/shower section and the front change area. Tune in to my other YouTube channel, Shawn James, to see where I got the aromatic cedar planks for the floor and the walls.
I make a batch of about 3 gallons of maple syrup and then I pull the taps out of the trees because the weather is changing rapidly and the good sap is about over. Working up a healthy appetite working in the bush and on the sauna, I cook several hearty meals, including venison (deer) cheeseburgers, trout with maple syrup glaze, venison burger with runny eggs for breakfast, venison steaks for dinner and lunch.
