The Channel

Nick and Maëla

Real Name(s)

Nick Wathier

Maëla Raoult

The Cabin

Their cabin is remarkably beautiful and nordic. It’s simple in its design but is solid like a rock!


After building their cabin, they have upgraded her with:

➜ Solar panels

➜ A wood header

➜ A loft floor with a ladder

➜ A new front porch

There’s more to come! Their first baby, perhaps?! 😉🤫


Quebec, Canada


After a few years of living vanlife, Nick and Maëla turned their attention towards cabin living and building from scratch. It’s a decision that has paid off well, allowing their channel to pivot into new territory!

Net Worth

YouTube couples building cabins are often a bit wealthier than we imagine. Looking through their channel metrics and of course, their many videos, I’ve come to this estimation…

As of 2024, Nick and Maëla has a net worth of $370,000 USD, based on the value of their land, truck, equipment and cabin.

So look, they don’t have all that much money but do get by with the resources, tools and knowledge they have. You don’t need to be rich to live an idyllic life in the woods.


It’s also surprising how little their channel makes. I’m also estimating that…

Nick and Maëla makes $4,000 per month on YouTube.

They’re only making money on YouTube ads at this time. They could make way more money by:

➜ Adding affiliate links to their video description (links to buying power tools is one epic idea)

➜ Taking on brand sponsorship deals (plenty of companies would love their watch-time)

➜ Starting their own Patreon account

➜ Even running their own Airbnb business

So it’s clear that they’re committed to building their cabin and life in the woods. I’d just love to see them treating their YouTube channel like a real business. It has so much potential!


There are so many off-grid YouTube channels now, but I haven’t seen them hang out with anyone!

Future Plans

I can imagine them living out the rest of their days on their off-grid property. It’s a haven for raising children and taking on ambitious projects at home.


Nick and Maëla aren’t engaged nor married, but they have been dating for 5 years now. They met while traveling and the rest is history.


What can we learn from their #cabinpreneur journey?

➜ You don’t need a ton of money

➜ You CAN be an everyday person

➜ Hard work ultimately pays off big time

And of course, stay humble during your cabin-build journey.

My Thoughts

Whenever anyone asks me to recommend a YouTube channel about a normal couple who has built a standard cabin, I always point them in the direction of Nick and Maëla.


They have built a simple yet perfect cabin that’ll serve them for decades to come. They aren’t millionaires and relatable to many of us, even if we’re 2x their age.

I hope they continue to create helpful and inspiring videos for years to come. 🙏
