The small house movement has taken off, I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked how to build an A-frame cabin! People are going crazy about these things. It’s about minimalism. For some, it could be a viable option for a bug out location as well. What is the small home movement really about?
It’s about flipping the paradigm on its head. People are tired of this idea that they must wake up each day, leave their families, put on clothes they don’t like, go to a job they hate and spend their whole life doing something they don’t want to do. When you sit down and quantify it you are facing a very sad existence.
Our time is worth a lot. Have you ever given any thought to the value of your time and the fact that you are selling that time to your employer?
From self-sufficiency to quality of life the simple home and simple lifestyle are very appealing. From a preppers point of view, you are freeing up lots of resources to divert towards prepping. This is so important. Preppers are always faced with time constraints, financial constraints and of course space constraints.
Even if you don’t have space on your side, freeing up time and money can take care of that problem. It’s only when you are maxed on all fronts that you truly struggle. Still, a simple home changes all of that because your biggest bill, mortgage, is either substantially cut down or is gone altogether.
How to Build an A-Frame Cabin
These instructions on how to build an A-Frame cabin mean much more than just a place to hang out. To some, it means there is a sea change in their life. To others, it means no more mortgage payment. These plans can also mean true freedom.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
