How To Build A Hut And Fireplace In The Wilderness From Scratch

If you ever decided to live in the wilderness and wanted to learn how to build a hut from scratch, then check this out!

The following is a direct quote from the person who built this hut:

I built this hut in the bush using naturally occurring materials and primitive tools. The hut is 2m wide and 2m long, the side walls are 1m high and the ridge line (highest point) is 2m high giving a roof angle of 45 degrees.

A bed was built inside and it takes up a little less than half the hut.

The tools used were a stone hand axe to chop wood, fire sticks to make fire, a digging stick for digging and clay pots to carry water.

The materials used in the hut were wood for the frame, vine and lawyer cane for lashings and mud for daubing. Broad leaves were initially used as thatch which worked well for about four months before starting to rot.

The roof was then covered with sheets of paper bark which proved to be a better roofing material (*peeling the outer layer of bark does not kill this species of tree). An external fireplace and chimney were also built to reduce smoke inside.

The hut is a small yet comfortable shelter and provides room to store tools and materials out of the weather.

The whole hut took 9 months from start to finish. But it only took 30 days of actual work (I abandoned it for a few months before adding bark roof, chimney and extra daub ).

It’s amazing to think about the forgotten knowledge we all once had regarding how to make the basic necessities in life, such as soap, candles, or even canning and preserving our own food. If a solar flare were to knock out our satellites, then we would be thrown back into a scenario where this type of information would be beneficial to those who are willing to move away from the chaos in the city.

Sending you all infinite Love & Light,

Gregg
