EPISODE 267 LOG CABIN REPAIR

Today’s episode is on log cabin repair. This is a listener requested episode it was requested by Aaron Leff. If you have an episode you wanted hear please send me an email at Jeff lostskillspodcast com. If I can answer your questions I will gladly do so on the podcast period I may even make a whole show about it.

I’m not an expert on log cabins but I was asked his question on how to repair some rotting logs on a wall of a cabin. This is what I think I would do to repair it and I came up with this actually before I asked anybody. I asked my dad about it and he told me what I thought was pretty much how they do it.

I thought about this more after i saw the video on the gravity fed sink that James from survivalpunk.com uploaded on youtube. check it out below

I also have a version of this i made for in my garage that you can see below

Hi everyone,

Today’s show is my second part of my  interview with James Burnette from survivalpunk.com. In today’s podcast i ask James questions like;

What got you prepping ?
Why you started survival punk .com.
Your path to dual homestead.
Things you salvaged from the trailer.
Details on your tiny house.
How you look at your preps now being paleo.
And we find also find plenty of topics go off on tangents about. That seems to be what we do when we get together and talk. You can listen to my interview here. since we do have that tendency to do that that during interviews it was 1 hr 45 minutes long so i split it into 2 parts.
