Let’s journey into his #cabinlife story.

The Channel


His YouTube channel has been running since early 2017 but didn’t have many viewers until around 2 years ago.

Real Name(s)

Dave Whipple (age 44)

Brooke Whipple (age 43) who is 125lbs and 5′ 4″.

Both are Christians and have been married since 1998.

Essentially, they got married right after high school.

They have 2 children who aren’t seen much on YouTube.

Dave is the main feature of the Bushradical channel, while his wife Brooke mainly does the filming.

She actually has her own channel, Girl In The Woods:

Vice-versa, he does the filming for her YouTube channel.

While she isn’t seen much on his channel, she does almost as much of the work including the use of the chainsaws, cutting and construction.

In this way, they’re able to appeal to different audiences.

They previously had a TV show with several seasons on the History channel called Brooke and Dave Whipple.

The Cabins

Dave actually owns one cabin but has built 7 since 1998.

His wife owns another cabin that she built all by herself.

They have built an outhouse (outside bathroom) each for both cabins, but they permanently live in one and use the other as their remote office, or occasionally rent these out.


Dave continuingly adds upgrades to his projects.

These include:

➜ Drilling his own water wells by hand

➜ Building his own outhouses and showers

➜ Creating very simple solar power systems

He keeps his upgrades as simple as possible.

This is by design, so it’s easier for everyone else to follow.


Bushradical is filmed in Interior, Alaska and Fairbanks Alaska. They use a very basic camera setup.


Dave is originally from rural Michigan but moved to Alaska as a young adult with his wife Brooke.

They paid just $6,000 for their first block of land to build a house (or rather, a tiny cabin) and were able to get a headstart in life.

In addition, the build cost was just an extra $1970.

True, unapologetic, freedom.

And today, his most recent cabin only cost him $5,500!

Dave uses real-life grit and determination to make things happen and encourages people to consider cabin living.

It’s the ultimate rustic escape, and you don’t need to be Amish to enjoy this minimalistic lifestyle.

It’s in the woods where he finds himself totally happy!

Dave simply wants to convey hope in the modern world and help people stay out of debt. At Cabinpreneur, we share that same ethos.


Dave Whipple makes $5,900/month on YouTube.

His income is generated through:

➜ YouTube advertising revenue

➜ Amazon affiliate links under his videos

➜ Selling knives on his YouTube channel

➜ Occasional brand sponsorships

Based on his monthly income, it’s safe to assume that Bushradical’s net worth is $345,000.

Yet as we know, Dave cares very little about money itself.

He also works as a freelance cement contractor when he isn’t creating videos. In addition, he still plays guitar in his band, Atomic Honkies, where he makes a few dollars in tips every month.

Soon he’ll be offering his Bushradical cabin plans for sale.


Apart from his wife, Dave has collaborated with several other YouTubers including Jim and Ted Baird.

Big Moments

There have been some great moments in Dave’s story:

➜ Building multiple off-grid cabins in the woods

➜ Building a cabin 7-miles from the closest road

➜ Visiting an Alaskan log raft on the Yukon river

No drama. No click-bait. Just straight education!

Future Plans

What will Dave do next with his channel?

No doubt he’ll be building another cabin!

While keeping things as simple as possible.

And we can’t wait to see what’s coming next!


Are there secrets that Dave isn’t sharing with his viewers?

Nope. 🤷🏻‍♂️

There are no conspiracy theories to see here.

Dave is as real as they get! A no-BS YouTuber.

Carry on, my friend.


What can we learn from Dave? A ton:

➜ Start planning for the future

➜ Everyone has some level of skills

➜ Building a cabin is very cheap

And of course, don’t just watch his channel…

My Thoughts

What can we say? Maybe a quote of Dave’s…

“One day of doing is better than a year’s of watching”

And another…

“It’s doable for anyone who’s willing to try…and do!”

And I totally agree! You can do the same thing.

Now get out there and start building!
