I built a Cabin in 2020 - Start to Finish

2020 was a strange year. I built a cabin through it which helped me through it. I had no experience prior to this, I made some small mistakes, some big mistakes, and somehow got through it all in one piece.

    C'mon, no experience? I'm calling BS on that concept! I have "no experience" which means most of the tools you used are foreign to me. You seemed to handle the tools like a person familiar with them. Reaching for a nail in your tool belt while still hammering a nail indicates time-saving experience!

    Having a father who teaches you these things is invaluable. Myself and my two brothers didn’t want any part of this stuff when we were younger. I now have learned electrical, carpentry, use of power tools, landscaping, etc. Do I know everything about all of those trades? Of course not but just being around it and wanting to learn goes a long way. Comment on this if ur dad showed ya the ropes on some of this stuff! By the way im a millennial. There is still hope. LOL

But in my case I can't even nail the shelf straight. At least I think so. I didn't try do anything myself for a long time. Maybe I should try. It's always begins with little things.

    I have two questions if I may? Assuming the answer was yes, firstly speaking from ignorance here unless I missed it how come you didn't insulate the roof? You did everywhere else but there. I'm assuming it has something to do with letting some heat escape for one or more reasons. Secondly, what was that paint paddle looking thing that you used on the roof at 23:16?
