Man lets cameras into his simple home in the woods

September 16th, 2020

Kalle Flodin has an interesting lifestyle. He is a Youtuber that lives in the middle of nowhere. A cabin in the middle of a forrest in northern Sweden to be exact. Built and remodeled by him and his father two years ago, he lives the simple life with his dog and partner on a tiny patch of beautiful land.

Kalle starts the tour with his daily routine. He always has a fire going, no matter the temperature. The sound of the crackling fire makes the home more cozy, and comforting to be in. The firewood is cut and collected from his own backyard, in a small wood shed he built with his father, with more wood that came from the neighboring forrest.

The views around the cabin are stunning. There isn’t a city, a warehouse, a car, or even a farm in sight. It’s simply trees, rivers, and nature, with his tiny home tucked away in the middle of all of it, only being noticed from a drone shot.

The cabin has everything you need, and nothing you don’t. Strictly the essentials. There is a ‘main house’ with a bedroom, living room and kitchen. Then there is a guest house for any of their friends that stay with them. Attached to the porch of the guest house is a small wooden desk that the couple uses as an office in the summer time. The bathroom is its own cabin located off to the side of the main and guest cabins.

The couple also has a random cabin. “Thats where we put everything when we don’t know where to put stuff. You know the guest house is very clean and the main cabin is very clean but thats only because we put all of our stuff in there.”

“Thats the secret!” he explains about cabin being the reason his instagram looks so perfect.

During his tour he shows off a few projects that he has going on as well. One of them, he has a friend bring in a backhoe to help dig out a pond in the center of all the cabins.

The fact that he knows someone who is able to get that big of machinery into such a secluded area is amazing in itself.

There is already a natural water source, but they are adding a dam to help build up the water and keep it inside the pond. They are also clearing an area to make space for a green house they will be building within the year. An asset that will help provide food year round.

Living off the grid can have its ups and downs. There is a lot of manual labor that goes into it, like building everything yourself and landscaping without the ease of machines like lawnmowers and weed whackers. But if you don’t mind the work, the views and simplicity is more rewarding than the struggles. Watch the video below to see all the aspects of living cabin life for yourself!
