  1. Such fun and beautiful build.
    I saw a minor detail of using green dowels and cutting them flush. If you can replace them with dry dowels and as the green beams dry they will make a permanent joint.
    Keep up the great work and fantastic videos.

  2. Quisiera saber como hacen con los insectos arañas escarabajos y eso para que no hagan nidos en la cabaña… Desde ya muchas gracias Saludos desde Argentina

  3. Having worked with green wood a bit some thirty years ago I have an observation to make. I see you cut the joint pegs or dowels off flush with the poles they are fixing. It may be prudent to cut them a little proud so that when the wood shrinks as it dries they can be hardened up again by driving in a little more.
    Cheers for a ruddy good show I envy you and wish I was fit enough to get in the woods again.

  4. arent those green dowels going to shrinkwhen they dry??? ive done plugs for holes once with semi green oak, 2 out of 4 came loose and that wasnt freshly cut wood. I always use dry wood for dowels etc since then.
