In this video, I am installing a bear-proof door on my off-grid log cabin that I am building in a remote location away from roads and people.

are u a good person????? What do you think? Are you a good enough person morally speaking to enter into heaven? Let's see! Have u ever use God's name in vain? How many lies or fibs or white lies or exaggerations have u told before in your whole entire life? =- Have you ever hated anyone before for any reason? Have you ever stolen anything before irrespective of its value????? Have you ever had sex outside of marriage before? Have you ever looked at pornography or masturbated before?????? ';;';';';';'; Have you ever lusted after material possessions or money before? Have you ever Dishonored your parents for any reason before? Have you ever loved anyone or anything more than your creator? ? If you have committed these heinous transgressions and sins, then God sees you as a liar and a thief and an adulterer and a fornicator and a blasphemer and a hater at heart and you must face a holy God of the day of judgement! Do you think you'll be innocent or guilty on the day of judgement? Will you go to heaven or to hell? Revelation chapter 21 says all liars will have their part in the Lake of Fire the Holy Bible declares that no thief and no adulterer and no fornicator and no blasphemer and no hater by any means shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven! You have broken God's laws and Jesus Christ have paid your fine! If you repent and turn away from all sin and Trust alone in Jesus Christ for salvation, God will forgive every sin you have ever committed and Grant you the free gift of everlasting life! If you refuse to repent and turn away from all sin and Trust in Christ then you must pay for your own sins against God yourself on the day of judgment which means that you will spend an eternity in the Lake of Fire and outer Darkness where there's weeping and gnashing of teeth forever in Everlasting torment in hell

He had the door open out because most animals push rather than pull on things, right? Like, It's way more likely that a fox, raccoon, wolf, or bear will push on a door to try to get in rather than to pull on it. Am I mistaken?

Because if you have a door that pushes inward a bear can easily break any king of lock you have but it cant get in if you have to pull it

you made the door open outward because if a bear rammed or hit it it wouldn't open into it and let the bear walk in, but if its outward then it wouldn't be able to open it

Very enjoyable to watch! and your American English is excellent too....I'm no carpenter but I would Imagine you made the doors open outwards to avoid heavy bears pushing them inwards, so the frame takes the pressure and it makes more room inside the cabin also.

As a retired custom furniture maker you have a skill set that is leaps and bounds above any other cabin maker I have ever seen. You build a cabin as if you are building a piece of fine furniture. I tip my adz to you. The door opening out is for bear frustration, I live in bear country and when a bear leans and bounces on your door and it opens in it will. An 800 pound bear will defeat most inside opening doors. Great build!

fantastic video - thank you very much , i really enjoyed that .... i just spent 4 years alone in the Scottish highlands - building temporary shelters and in tents when roaming around . To see this level of craftsmanship makes me embarrassed of my attempts at making shelters to see out the winters . Most of my shelters i put up and then took down when i left an area - so they were not as grand as yours . i found shrink wrap to be a very useful tool in insulating - i used to make cavities with it, then put HAY in the middle ...great for adding a extra layer of water proofing too and easy to burn to dispose of i was plagued with RATS and mice - looking for ways into my shelters . as i said above thankyou - it really was a good video and i have to agree working with wood can be very relaxing when you apply the time to do it . I myself DO NOT have your skill for am in awe

I assume you made the door open outwards because it would be easiest to make the hinges as there isnt enough space for.the door inward. Also if a bear would roam.around it would not be the door open inwards to just barge in but it would have to open it outwards meaning pull the door towards her a task i assume nearly impossible

Excellent job bro. As for the reason you made the door to open outside its because its safer since the door frame prevents the door from being pushed in. A small sacrifice for extra bear safety(:-) Abraham from Trinidad.

Why open outwards??? Simple, to make it bear proof. The door is blocked around its entire perimeter. An inward opening door is only held at its locking mechanism, and therefore, much easier to be over powered. Also, you have a good overhang, to inhibit the deposition of too much snow that may block the door.

Fun fact. In Sweden, pretty much all doors open out due to fire & safety building code. In Norway, doors open inward. Why? Because it is considered more welcoming 😄 But of course, you're Finnish. The Finns just do everything a bit better than all the rest of us up here in the Nordics. I used to be pretty proud of my fellow Swedes but in the last decades or so Finland just keeps beating our asses at practically everything. I guess NOpost is no exception. Of course you're Finnish man. I should have known... 😉

@Advoko MAKES Damn. I was so sure 🤦‍♀️ So I guess the Russians do it better than all of us then. Since Russia is at the absolute top of my "countries I fully want to explore list" and I will have to stick around for a good long while (or come back often) to even scratch the surface of all there is to see and learn in your ginormous land I'll probably be speaking Russian by the end of it. If I don't get eaten by a bear first 😉 Thank you for the lovely content. I feel smarter, braver and more adventurous already 😊

I just watched your vid about the attempted break in and I think the reason they tried to pry it open instead of just opening it is because they probably thought the door opened inward, so your choice of having it open outward instead served a anti theft purpose! All these videos are so satisfying

So if a force comes from the outside (like a bear, which hasn't apposable thumbs), it can only push the door closed more.
