Let’s journey into her #cabinlife story.

The Channel

Girl In The Woods

Her YouTube account was started in 2009 but didn’t gain much traction until around 2016.

Her previous videos focused on bushcraft and hiking rather than homesteading and building cabins.

Real Name(s)

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

Despite her smaller size, she does the bulk of her construction by herself.

Brooke Whipple has a husband called Dave who holds her camera and helps her to plan her cabin projects.

He has a channel of his own called Bushradical which has more than 700,000 subscribers.

They have been married since 1998 and have two children, but neither are really seen. This is her daughter Belle:

Brooke generally keeps her kids off her YouTube channel.

Her dog’s name is Maysie which is a border collie.

The Cabin

Brooke has built 5 cabins in her 15-year journey, but most of these were alongside her husband Dave.

However, this A-frame cabin is one she built herself:

It’s living proof that women can definitely build their own cabins, even if they are (somewhat) physically challenged.


Brooke is forever planning or building upgrades.

If you’re a fan of Dave’s channel, then there is some exclusive content on Brooke’s channel that you’re missing out on.

These include:

➜ Installing a water well with a sledgehammer

➜ Camping in a truck camper that’s been restored

➜ Going on multiple girls-only weekends away

➜ Creating her own cabin’s off-grid shower

We can’t wait to see what’s coming up next!


Girl In The Woods is filmed in Interior, Alaska and Fairbanks Alaska. She uses a very basic camera setup.

The exact address/location is purposely private to avoid vandalism and stalkers.

However, you can send her mail:

PO Box 281 Reed City, MI 49677


Brooke grew up in rural Michigan but moved to Alaska as a young adult with her husband Dave soon after they were married.

They paid only $6,000 in 1999 for their first 2-acre block of land to build a house (or rather, a tiny cabin) and were able to get a headstart in life.

This is true, unapologetic, pure freedom.

And today, their cabins are always less than $10,000.

Brooke uses real-life grit and basic knowledge to make things happen and encourages her mostly-female audience to consider cabin living.

We believe 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 she finds herself totally at peace!

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


Girl In The Woods makes $7,900/month on YouTube.

How? It’s quite straight-forward. She makes it by:

➜ Running ads on her YouTube channel

➜ Placing Amazon links in the description

➜ Earning multiple PayPal donations weekly

➜ Selling products on her Etsy store

Based on this monthly income, it’s safe to assume that Girl In The Woods’ net worth is $345,000. This is combined with her husband, Dave.

She teaches women’s outdoor and remote survival workshops around once per year.


Apart from her husband’s YouTube channel, Brooke doesn’t really collaborate or mix in with any other popular channels.

Big Moments

What impressive things have happened in her journey?

A lot, actually. These include:

➜ Getting her own chainsaw

➜ Pulling stumps out by herself

➜ Becoming an official prepper

Also, this was her scariest moment ever:

Fortunately, she hasn’t encountered any stalkers.

Future Plans

What has Brooke got planned next?

It’s hard to know, but we can’t wait to see!

No doubt there will be another cabin build…


Are there secrets that Brooke is keeping to herself?

Not really. She’s very much upfront about her life.

She doesn’t really use click-bait content.

And thus, there are no conspiracy theories.


What can we learn from Brooke’s story?

A lot, actually:

➜ Cabin living is definitely possible

➜ Don’t be afraid to make sacrifices

➜ Debt-free homesteads = freedom

Most importantly, don’t just watch.

My Thoughts

Brooke believes in sweat-equity in life.

That is – putting in the hard work yourself.

Meanwhile, staying completely out of debt.
