When we decided to build our house in the mountains we knew there would be challenges. Snow is one of those challenges and we have been preparing for it for the last few weeks but this video goes to show that no matter how prepared you are, things can really take you by surprise haha.
Enjoy watching us battle the elements while we are buried in snow!!!

    Should put a 90 on your vent pipe and about another 4 feet plus a top, so when the snow covers it fumes are not vented back into covering.

    Be careful with that exhaust fan as it looks like it will still put carbon monoxide into the garage around your trailer and therefore into your trailer. Careful guys.

    Hi from France, when there's snow outside I always have in my car snacks and water just in case I get stuck somewhere! and i do not know if you have the same sentence in english but in France we always say "mesure deux fois, coupe une fois" ("mesure twice, cut once" maybe!)

    samus aran20 days ago

    Being in Quebec, we have a Shelter Logic as well..... very sturdy, very easy to asemble.. I will watch the rest of the videos to see if you did it, but for ours, because of the high winds where we live, althought we secured the feet with 12 in nails/spikes, we also added ratchet straps accross on the outside of the shelter attached to 16 Inches Spiral Stake, that way, we ensured that it stays down... Nothing beats the peace of mind and not have to worry that at 3 am the louds winds wake you up and see your shelter half way in the air. By this time, (i'm a bit behind in watching your videos but quickly catching up) already Jan 3rd, the ground will be frozen but, if you guys haven't done it, I'll suggest adding these ratchet straps....

    It would be a much better idea to put the chains on the front wheels. Helps with turning, and the weight gives you better traction. Good luck

    You guys are such a hoot and even a holler! I love that you helped that man when (sadly) many people might have driven by. I do have a question, though, that's been niggling my mind while watching your progress through the changing elements. Now, I know you used solar panels to run Terry's electricity. With the snow and the tent, what are you using? You must have electricity up there...I'm figuring...because I'm pretty sure the solar panels couldn't collect enough energy in that kind of overcast weather. Also...are you planning to use solar energy in your house too? I'm guessing during the winter you would have to have back up...then again, with as windy as it seemed in some of the videos you could also use wind energy. I apologize if you mentioned this in an earlier video. I pleasantly stumbled upon your charming feed while watching videos about van/rv living. I've been hooked ever since.

  41. TNO PS Clark

    TNO PS ClarkMonth ago

    FYI: this is not a negative comment against ShelterLogic because we could have never made it through winters on the ranchette without ours, but just so you can prepare for a potential problem. When it is freezing with rain/ice/slurry, the zipper on the door will get frozen in position. If you try to force it...most times it will work, but when it doesn’t then the zipper breaks. My recommendation is to try to find a cover system for the zipper. Now that I have learned to sew, I probably would have tried to sew a flap with Velcro that covers the zipper enough to keep moisture-turn-to-ice off the zipper and teeth. I’m not sure how you all can make that happen since you would be inside the Shelter. Good luck to ya. Keep em coming. We love snuggling up in our warm house and watching you make yours!

  42. Sarah Smith

    Cleats for your boots. They're not foolproof & don't stay on very well for long walks, but for short jaunts like that they make a world of difference on ice. Glad you were able to help him out.

    There are cheap home security systems available that you could use to give yourselves some outdoor views while in the trailer. $200-$300 will get you four cameras and a base unit that could give you a 360-degree view outside, and can be set up in an hour or two.
