Music by

Jason and Lorraine. In 2016 we sold most of our belongings and left the city in southern California to start a small homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. We left the city in search for a more minimal and intentional life. We became passionate about growing our own food and knowing what exactly is in our food after I (Jason) became diagnosed with cancer. Now 8 years in remission we as a family are on a journey to live our passions.
We document our life on YouTube videos to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and not be afraid of change. We started our own online general store where we have available the things we make and use in real life. Thank you for following us on this incredible life changing journey!

    You're right, practically speaking foam insulation in a cooler wouldn't bother me. The question is if it would bother a building inspector? He could call it a fire hazard depending on which inspector you get and what the local building codes say.

  2. Melissa Lucero says:

    I tried to get Al's wife to rent him out for a week but they don't have enough time. Any chance you might be rentable for a week to help get some projects finished? Lol I am just kidding, I really enjoy your videos and I think that you are definitely helping me understand more about how to build things and why you have to do certain things. God bless y'all!

  3. evalina Warne says:

    Did you build SAFETY locks. So if someone was inside the cool room they could get out.. PLUS some how put it on the phone so the ADULTS would be aware. Someone is locked in. Please LORD let that NOT HAPPEN.
    I TRUST. THAT you have prepared this alreandy. I just missed it on the VLOG. JUST a MOM THINKING SAFETY. I WOULD WANT to MAKE the ROOM MUCH BIGGER.
    (You could build a small one for 🔥 HOT FLASHES🔥🔥🔥🐱 😆)

    Looking great Jason, question for you. What kind of straight edge are you using for your circular saw at the 4:53 mark to cut straight line? I've used few in the past and they all have their flaws but this one even looks like it allows you to plunge the saw. Keep doing what your doing, your a great motivation for us all!

    I came looking how to build after seeing Justin's walk in being a home made one I'm so glad this video is up your amazing for the tutorial on how you made it !

  6. Viviane Marani says:

    Jason, thanks for the video. I am building a walk-in cooler for myself of very similar dimensions 10x8x8. I would like to know the specs
    (maybe a link) to the door and the AC unit, please?

  7. Kieran Mullen says:

    First of all wood is not a good insulator. Second wood absorbs moisture. In a freezer it can then freeze and swell causing the joints to misshape and leak precious cold. Third, damp wood is a food source for mold and can cause mold to grow inside the panel and possibly cause negative health affects. Finally, wood can absorb water vapor lowering its already low R-value. This water vapor, through freeze and thaw cycles, cause water to run down and either freeze inside the walk-in or run outside the walk-in causing an unsafe slippery floor increasing injuries and liability issues. Therefore wood is not desirable in walk-ins.

    I just stumbled across this video. Great work. But will the ac run off a solar panel during a grid down situation? I’m trying to learn more about solar right now thinking ahead for when TSHTF which could be soon imo.

  9. mr t says:

    looks like you forgot the vapor barrier in your build. thats the most important part bro. moisture will way in and rot out your whole room. can u clarify if you vapor sealed the pitside of your room envelope or not?

    0:07 – Dude you look like some old ass dude who lives in the Taliban mountains, I swear you look like some old middle eastern dude… my brain is having a hard time to register why you have perfect American English accent and don't sound old and grumpy… would like to know all the stats and details… it's really not logical to use a window AC…

    I found this video because I am curious if it's possible to build an indoor ice skating rink for a home considering I live where it doesn't get below 32 degrees (Florida).
