I love this format! I started one night to watch the video and it’s so relaxing and fun to watch, now I need more long videos like that! Keep it up with this great work to all the team! And let me know if you guys can work in Quebec/Canada!
Totally came across your video on accident and got sucked in quick. I’ve never seen/watched a home made from step 1 so this was so educational and entertaining. This was officially the longest video I’ve watched on UAclips. What a beautiful home. You and our team should be proud! Thank you for sharing. 😎
Thanks Amanda for all ready commenting what I was going to say. 👍🤜🤛
I second all that..,very educational. So much lingo learned...I learned that cutting and bending tin flashing is an art.
_The best thing about this build is how you guys enjoy what you're doing._
I've been an auto mechanic for 20+ years until I threw out my back but at times throughout the years when I was out of work, I would work with my dad building houses or doing additions, remodels etc. , and I loved the work that I did. Hard work for sure but I loved it. That being said, I really enjoyed watching you guys build this awesome house in its beautiful location. Nice work guys!
😊😅😢 I 😂❤myQp
Having built roughly 400 homes, 58 yrs old now, in my working life, I got a real kick outta watching your crew work. Professionals with a lot of respect for each other. That's what gets the job done. Built in Alabama, Massachusetts, and Colorado.....
I can't believe I sat and watched this whole video, but you guys made it fun, interesting, and educational. So much talent and craftsmanship in one place. Love the attention to detail and that you guys think the project out so far ahead. Thanks.
Love this video. I'm a former builder from Georgia. At 1:09 you asked why the pencils are flat. 1) They won't roll off the surface you lay them on. 2) But they can be used for fine measuring or spacing. They are 1/4" thick and 1/2" wide. 3) The lead is thick to resist breaking, and you can scrub the lead down to a sharp but wide shape for precision marking.
As a first-born daughter, I would help my dad build things around the farm and always wondered why the pencil was flat. I never asked. Well, well, 30 years later, the universe delivers me an answer. Mahalo 🌺
No hard hats - why aren't they complying with OSHA?
No way, and here's me thinking they're 5mm x 10mm.
It’s incredible that 1 crew of 6 guys can build an entire house
I didn't video of them tiling the roof, insulating, HVAC, plumbing or electrical. Still impressive otherwise.
@RJ3T What is the confusion? I'm simply saying the timeline can determine crew size. You want a house built super fast, you need a main crew for every discipline, concrete, framers, roofers plumbers, electricians, mechanical all kind of working at the same time getting things done. But a house can literally be built by one main person, hiring a few people here and there as needed, but will take far longer, but some people don't care about the time it takes.
Crew size really depends on timeline wouldn't it? Clearly we have a vacation home here where the owners simply don't care about any major crunch to get it done where a developer in town would have very tight budget constraints that requires fast turn around and requires many disciplines to have their own crews come in all working at the same time.
Yeah brah. But they also hired a ton of other people during the process. Still very impressive.
Started watching by accident and couldn't stop until I watched to the finish. Great build and really appreciate ALL of the detailed video work. My only frustration is that we can't find contractors like you guys here in Florida. Makes me want to move to the mountains just so you guys can build as house for us. :-)
In Germany we would take a company for the holes, another for the foundation, one for the brick walls, one for the wooden constructions, one for the roof, one for the insidewalls, one for the painting ... and so on and on. YOU took only six awesome guys and made it!! GREAT SKILLS!
@Ana Dubar: I also from germany and built 1 large hosue in france nearly alone and also 1 in germany. but in germany I had problems with the government and also because I always asked them how to do and reading the laws and tell them that only because of they always do so as they wanted me to do it is not sure that there is also an other possibility. but also in germany each state has his own building regulations and even from city to city often the people working there in those government offices not know how they hanlde this all in other cities.
and that is why it is so expensive to built a house in germany. all is double and tripple regulated and everybody only wants your best - your money
Uhm, if you do, then you don't do it right.
A friend of mine has a construction company in Berlin, and it basically consists of 8 friends working together, building houses. They build houses all over Germany and Poland.
In addition to that: there is a difference in building a brick house versus wood.
There is a huge difference in building laws, laws in Germany being much more complicated, and they require licensed specialists for all work you do, from construction to plumbing to electricity. This prevents people from doing all kinds of different jobs, they have to specialize in one particular field, have the specific diplomas and the liability insurance that goes with it.
And then, on a side note, I dunno about this house which looks of a decent quality, but in general, the quality of houses in Germany is WAAAAAYY above that of American houses. These paperboard houses get blown away with the first hurricane, they would never pass the Bauabnahme (final approval by authorities) in Germany. When you close one window, the entire house shakes.
Whilst in Germany, it is expected that houses, once build, will be useable for the next 400 years. At least.
That is the difference between a Contractor vs. A Builder.
As you folks were doing many of the finishing aspects of this build, I was getting chills. The overall craftsmanship and the how this all came together, was stunning!!
I was mesmerized watching you all build this house. You guys seem to get along so well. It was so much I had to watch from start to finish ! Can't wait to see your next build.
Crazy that you guys built this in under 3 hours, thats gotta be some kinda world record!
I came to say this, go figure I wouldn't be the first. 😂
I watched it a second time and they just build 2 hice in under 6 hours
Came across this video today and was drawn in as well as the many other viewers. I throughly enjoyed the entire 2 1/2 hours watching every step of the way...very cool to watch the process...I am curious just how long that job was though...thank you SO much for all the work you all did on shooting the build. REALLY REALLY enjoyed it....When I was 14 yrs old my Dad built a four bdr. 2 bath, 2 story addition to our existing tiny house which was basically a weekend cabin. My brother and I were his only crew. From foundation to shingles and ALL the interior as well as plumbing and electrical, paneling, paint and wallpaper...It was an amazing experience I will never forget and I miss that environment SO much... I have not been able to enjoy that kind of work much in my adult life and that stinks...I am now 62 and believing God for my chance to at least oversee some projects in the near future as we build a safe place for those who need it...blessings to you guys!
Being in construction for over 30 years myself. It's great to see a talented crew that takes pride in their craftsmanship!! The young generation still in school needs to watch your guys channel. Just to let them know how you can build something amazing with your skills and at the end its very rewarding. I'd buy your crew lunch if you're ever out in Colorado. Peace brothers 🙏
In today's world, a guy with a busted foot showing up for work is incredible. It's a miracle if you can get anyone to show up for two months in a row, much less a walking wounded. Kudos to him and the rest of the crew. Really impressed by your crew and their commitment to the company/projects.
You guys have to be the best team I've ever seen. Perfect amount of hard work and fun poking.
These guys are so good, they do the framing better than most finish carpenters do interior finish carpentery.
I'm tempted to buy property in NC and hire this crew to build my dream house
I have to say this is the best of the best when it comes to construction videos. I watched the whole wideo start to finish in one take. I love the way it was filmed and edited and the voice over, th little jokes and laughs were the best, the technical details were detailed enough that i understood the basics and maybe even more, but not too much that i got bored. Overall an extremely pleasant experience watching this.
It is a great pleasure to watch a crew like yours who seem like best friends work together and it has to be even more gratifying to work with people that after lots of projects you can almost read each others minds which make it so much easier to build a project and still keep the comraderies that have been established over years of together. All in all a great video and I see no short cuts in materials and construction practices. Great job done by all.
This is straight to the point
Repent to Jesus Christ “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12 NIV
So enjoyable seeing talented good people coming together and building something beautiful, and having fun along the way.
I can't believe I watched through the whole video today - so fun and interesting how you do all this stuff! Also, great team spirit there!
Just one question: How much insulation did you install?
You guys do great work and this video was very entertaining. You obviously get along with your crew as if they were close family. Great to see and to observe in action. Terrific ! I'll tune in again !
You guys didn't cut no corners and shared a lot of tips and tricks. Down to earth crew and very trustworthy!
I amazed how you guy's get on so well. I'm a retried builder what I miss the most is the banter and the jokes. it's great fun when you woke with a great crew. it's a brilliant job you all have done. Good luck for the future. God bless you all. Paddy from Belfast Ireland. 🇮🇪
Sending prayers for our Lord Jesus to bless you n yours.
@Patrick Rooney One more question..Do the Irish people say Top of the morning to ya
@Patrick Rooney luckily we don’t have any grammar Nazis in this comment!.I did think the Woke was pretty funny..😀
I meant to say work not woke lol
Best homebuilding series I have ever seen. You guys work well together and are having fun. If I could afford to have a custom home built, I would hire you guys!
What an absolutely wonderful professional build, loved following it from digging to completion, you guys clearly enjoy your work and are professional to the end, the fact your banter is what drives you all shows your professional natures, great work beautiful house
This is an amazing video! I can’t believe I sat and watched the whole thing, but this was so well done, so well edited, it had me locked in the whole time.
I’ll say this, if I ever build another home, I WANT your company doing it. I’ve never seen one crew do everything!! From digging dirt, foundation, concrete pouring, block, rebar, framing, roofing, decking, siding, drywall, primer, painting, fireplace, tile, flooring, cabinets…. and I’m missing tons more, every member of your crew did it. This HAS to make the whole house just that much better. Here, it’s a separate company with different crew at each step of the way. Having your crew doing it all means you’re taking ownership all the way through. Seeing everyone involved in staining the doors and baseboards was next level amazing as well. Seriously, whoever the homeowner is here…. you are SO fortunate to have had this company and crew. I’ve had homes built and others renovated that don’t come anywhere close to this quality, this level of care! Whatever you paid them…. it wasn’t enough! 😂 I’m in Canada, but hell I’d move to the Smokey mountains just to be able to hire you guys to build me a home.
Incredible work on the house, knocked it right out of the park! And the video of it was equally high quality. Great work man….GREAT work! 🤠👍🏼☮️
2:32:13 I must have missed part of the video somewhere… or maybe it’s a separate video? Can you point me where I’d find the video of you guys making the appliances?? That stove just appeared here, I want to see how you built it, especially the finish you put on it! 🤣
It was a pleasure watching you all guys putting in so much effort and hard work in bringing someone's dream come true wishing you all guys all the best
I have always worked by myself building garages, decks, and other home type projects and property maintanence. One fall about 10 years ago I had to go look for employment. My sister hooked me up with a framing company. I knew how to build but again I always worked by myself. I joined a 3 man crew that had been working together building houses for years. I found out quickly that I didnt know the "proper" names and terminolgy for alot of stuff. being the new guy and odd man out felt very humbling and had me second guessing my every move. As soon as my other work for myself picked up I gave my notice to them. I was always in the way and slowing their process down. At least I felt I was. Those 3 guys would build 3-4 bed 2 story homes with attached 3 car garages, completely weather tight with windows, doors, roofing, tyvek and porches in 2 weeks give or take a day. Crazy.. So crews of guys who day in and day out build houses are able to do incredible shit, fast.
.. side note.. Never, NEVER attempt to do Bitchathane or Ice and water sheild on a hot day, or windy day. Double F U if you try to use it on a hot and windy day. If it touches itself even just alittle, cut it off. Dont waste your time trying to get it straightened out. It juat gets worse.
As a former contractor/builder I have to say I really enjoy the coraderie of the crew. I am now retired but I miss the days of cutting up and working on a project with a bunch of fellas you know and work well together with.
@Jobel Garcela they did, before pouring concrete on the basement floor 16:22
Same here my friend. 25 years worth and loved almost every minute (hated shoveling) of it. Its nice to look back at the projects you will leave behind for others to enjoy once we exit this crazy world we live in.
Cheers to all you hard working men and women in the construction business. May God bless you all 🙏👍
@Dino Man ….. it’s empty fillings hollow blocks ….. you better squeeze your face as filler. 😛😝🤪
@Jobel Garcela its by design, SPIRAL FACE!
Love all the hard work
You guy's do awesome work and are entertaining to watch. Keep up the good work!
Great video! I like this format - start to finish in one video. I'm hoping there will be more like this?
Awesome team work and a great display of skills, precision in making this house. I've gained a lot of inspiration by just watching this video from A to Z regarding house construction. Please keep on posting videos like this 🙂👍
Fantastic! You guys sure have great skills! Curious what that build cost?
Thank you so much for editing this long video. Much better than anything on TV at the moment. The commentary and all the effort that goes into putting these videos together for our enjoyment is phenomenal. Thank you so much again best wishes from the UK.
Love watching the boys work together, cracking jokes and working hard! great work, keep up the awesome videos!
Awesome build and watching it from start to finish puts building something into perspective. Good job.
I love the windows in the front and the stairs. What a great project you guys just did!
With one hand and this guy is doing what he loves to do!!! This tells you if there’s a will there’s a way. Good for you bud!!! Keep it up
I'm not planning to build a house any time soon but if I were I'd sure want you guys to be the builders. Amazing work guys.
You guys are top quality. The extra attention is always worth it. You can see that alot of pride goes into work.
Loved this please do more like this. Yall are awesome
It LOOKS great! You all are THE perfect team! Enjoyed watching the video.
Thank you so much!
Beautiful house. Meticulous work guys. I dont get tired of watching old videos. 👍👍👍 the friendship and comedic environment you guys creat e makes it so enjoyable to watch.
Beautiful work fellas! I love construction videos. Real professionals.
Wow, love the great work ya’ll put into this house, it a awesome house. Thanks for sharing ❤❤
I'm an old retired contractor out of Atl, now living in Middle Tn. Just found y'all and I have smiled and grinned all the way through this video. You guys are so candid, and real its funny, the amount of custom work, "care" and professionalism just warms my heart. Nice to know there is a younger generation that really takes pride in what they do. Remember gents...You're artists. Thank you so much for your hard work and pride.
Love watching you guys!! Y’all are to funny and great builders!!
It is allways a pleasure to watch real craftsmanship. You all really do quality work and it is a disappearing profession nowadays.
The customer is the master. As a master, I would never build my home without a nice large basement, even larger than the outside house walls.
Great job, guys !
I love that you guys show that not everything goes as planned and sometimes you have to redo things. Truly makes it "Real". Great content!
I absolutely love this work team. Very hardworking and efficient with such nice clean finish. They are having fun on the job too
The cool part about these videos Looking back and remembering all the work that went into the house, I feel like I was there 😀 Thanks for these videos and making me feel like part of the crew.
Really enjoyed watching this video from start to finish I wasn't once distracted or bored amazing craftsmanship and great bunch working together and having fun I miss those days on the site 👍
If more people would enjoy what they do for a living as much as you guys seem to, that be great. Really enjoyed your video. Thanks for sharing!
Love watching these videos, I know I don't necessarily trust myself to do all this but after watching 'em I have such a better understanding of how everything is done, why its done, and what it takes to do it.
wow you guys are so amazing and talented professionals all day long ❤️
Thank you so much!!
I was going to skip through this video but it was so interesting I watched the whole thing. I enjoyed seeing how things were done and the input provided by the whole crew. Enjoyed seeing a crew work together and laughing even when assigned a job they did not enjoy. Great job and great crew.
Wow... I watched the original series, but it's really nice to see the entire build from start to finish! A beautiful result guys.
Just came by this and spent 2:42 of my Sunday morning watching this from start to finish.. Nice work guys.
From a DOP of 30+ years, some engaging story telling here.. Great finished product too!
Regards from London, England.
I am a new subscriber & I Just wanted to say that your attention to detail is amazing! Beautiful job guy’s!🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
This was such amazing work and craftmanship. Really enjoyed watching this transformation. Great work all around.
Awesome video, love the wood framed houses in the States.
Btw, those pencils are that shape so they don't roll away, and can hold a broader (less fragile) core of graphite. Finally, not sure whether it's on purpose, but they're easier to stick behind your ear ;)
LOVE THE COLOR COMBINATION OF THE INTERIOR. You all work well together!
The way you guys get into the details is awesome. Like planing the lumber to make sure the decking is completely flat and other stuff most builders wouldn't care about. Impeccable work guys.
Wow! So glad this showed up in my UAclips recommendation feed! Not too often they get it right. I’m really looking forward to watching the whole video and seeing more of your content. Cheers!
Well, this is the first time I've watched one of your builds and I am surprisingly impressed. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the entire crew seemingly had a great morale throughout. And, a level of skill and professionalism that is rarely ever seen anymore these days. Keep up the good work. I will be subscribing to your channel, which is something I rarely ever do. I'm disabled now or forced retired, so I live vicariously thru these videos now a days. The only thing that I didn't like was the tile in the shower. I liked the river rock accent but the square blue-green tiles (totally and purely a matter of taste and style). It just wasn't for me. I have a feeling the local handyman will be tearing those out in a few years, and replacing them with rectangle marble or slate tiles...
I love the rapport between everybody! Very positive working crew! Super dope!
Great job guys. The house is immaculate. I saw this video from start to finish almost 3 hours, though I have to paused it to get some snack or do some house chores. I didn't want it to end. I will definitely wait for your next build. This is more of a comedy.
I loved how the quality of your work mattered. The finished project is beautiful.
Watched this whole video sitting in my truck at job site and told my guys im researching and ordering materials, as a remodeling contractor in NC I love Bryson city area and envy the fun builds in the mountains. Good job guys, now I can get to work
If you got one..
Nice video! I spent my entire life building homes just like this. With my three brothers yes four of us and at least four other guys but we did very thing from start to finish. There was a lot of pride in this for all of us!
Absolutely beautiful - y’all did an amazing job.
Looking forward to another build.
You guys are awesome! Beautiful house!
Amazing job. I love your videos. Your crew is awesome. Your humor is top notch. Jason is my favorite.
I'm fascinated with what your doing this is the first time I've seen anything like this specially constructing a home in the wilderness and you are doing a good job well done guys
What is it about this for me ? I'm not a builder of any sort, but really fascinated how you all built a house from scratch. Starting the plot and laying the foundations were my best parts. Great fun to watch , sat through it all. Best regards from England, well done, chaps !!
This is the crew I want to work for. You guys are awesome!
Great work, Great fun! You guys should win the Academy Award for "Construction of a home in the wilderness"! Thanks.
Amazing how talented all of this crew is!!! Each one knows how to do everything!!! We have a nice lakefront property we bought 2yrs ago in Florida. No home yet...but the one you all built is perfect!!!! Can I ask how much it was?
Ok, even as a female, I totally cannot believed I watched this whole video. Loved yalls humor, and you seem to have a really good crew! You did a very beautiful job. Too bad you are not in Oklahoma! Great job guys!
You should start building.
Crazy as it may sound to some, I miss my construction days. I mostly did roofing but there was some concrete, framing, plumbing and electrical too. I’ve been in some beautiful places. Great work guys
I remember building a house with a 42 foot foundation wall on the side of a mountain. You get a lot of topsoil on steep slopes due to years of run-off collecting. Looks like a cool sight with views you guys get to work with. I wonder if winds will be an issue.
Awesome work guys. Mad respect for what goes in to build a home. Enjoyed the video 💯.
Discovered your UAclips Channel couple of wks ago and you guys do great work construction wise and also your videos are well done. Thank you for the great content!!!
You guys really know your stuff. I've loved watching constructions go up since I was a little girl. It is absolutely wonderful to watch young men learning how to build with quality. We don't have a lot of men who can create quality any more. Contractors are having a hard time finding younger men to learn the trade. That goes for a lot of other businesses too. Thanks gentlemen for reviving my hope for future generations of craftsmen.
Really enjoyed watching this, and I have a kinda sorta similar build utilizing a walkout basement with a patio and porch above it. I had originally planned to use the basement as the shop to build the home, but found out how difficult it was going to be to get my machines into the basement, building on top of a slope. I'm not doing the foundation(s), but shop is being poured tomorrow, hopefully.🤞 I bet the owner is thrilled with the home!👏
Thank you for this video. It truly touched my heart. The ending with your wife and daughter was such a pleasant surprise.
Wow, I can’t believe I watched the whole thing. Nice job guys. You obviously have a great time working together.
It is essential to have a guy like Jason in your team! The days drag like hell if there’s no one to crack jokes and fool around
AMAZING work by a truly brilliant team !
Hey there from New Zealand. Just LOVED the banter and zany humor you guys inject into your day.
Great looking result. Very impressed.
Thanks for sharing this video. It is pretty cool to watch you guys make a house. And those metal fingers are awesome.
Really it was great seeing you guys delivering a fantastic and amazing House built project. 👌
Love the way you guys working, God bless you all.
Love the build guys! Any updates on your mountain property? Can't believe its been 18 months since you got it!
Nice vid, especially about the interaction between you guys and the fun you seem to have together. I only don’t dig the plastic finish on the outside and loads of drywall but that’s an American thing I guess. Well I know for sure, because my aunt just outside of New York lives in an equal built house. Keep up the good work and have fun doing it.
Awesome…loved watching you guys complete this build 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
It was a pleasure watching all of you build the house.
