Build a Log Cabin: Front Porch, Self Reliance and Survival, Generation Z

I chink the log cabin with clay and moss, build a front porch and talk about self reliance and survival for kids and young adults as Generation Z takes the torch from us. With 4 days of warm weather before winter, snow and cold weather returns, I must make the log cabin weather tight, and I put a wood deck on the front of the cabin before the ground freezes so that I can build a full covered porch over the winter.
With temperatures above zero, I was able to chink the outside of the cabin to keep mice and other rodents out. Cleaning up around the cabin was also high priority before snow covers the ground.
In my self reflections, I talk about hard work, perseverance and why I’m inspired by the next generation. I thank kids and young adults for following along and I name several of them specifically, thanking them.
The film starts off with drone footage of the cabin, transitioning from summer to fall to winter. A close encounter with two beavers preparing food for the winter adds to the scene. On the final day of the video, extremely high winds rule the day, knocking over trees, making whitecaps on the lake and adding anxiety to a hard day of work.
