How To Build A Shelter In The Forest

Have lost your way in the forest? Here you can learn read how to construct a house and survive, until you be found!

A bivouac (camp) is a temporary dwelling for the person who has got in an unforseen situation. Therefore you must arrange the camp according to this situation. But despite everything, if it is possible, you should build a strong, capital construction, keeping heat and protecting you from any bad weather. If for example you have been thrown out on a desert island or in a deaf taiga after a plane or a ship crash.

It is very simple to construct a temporary shelter in the forest.

We choose a tree which has fallen angularly.

We prepare branches of nessesary length. We do not need thick branches they are heavy and if they fall on you, it will be unpleasant. We also do not take too thin ones – they can not sustain the weight of fir things and will break.

We place the prepeared branches at angularly to a tree.

We choose such an angle, that it would be possible to fit into the shelter. If the corner is too sharp – there won’t be enough space under the roof and if it is too obtuse – the roof might get wet in the rain and fail (epic) under the weight of snow.

If you are lucky to find fir branches it is better to use them. Their needles are wider than needles of pine for example so the shelter will get wet less.

  1. I thought he would do the other side too. Make a tent, you know.

    Also I want to show you all this. ‘Recommended site’ fail

  2. We used to build those as kids. That one only has one side, if you have time, do the other side and you can make a cover for the entrance.

  3. It works, but it is easier to have a tent ready (one-man tent is hardly heavier than 1 kg these days) 😉
    The ideal tool for cutting the branches is machete, I used to use the basic sugar-cane type.

  4. I’ve built a few of them, carry a bivibag and light trap an you don’t need the weight of tent and can make a shelter crudely but effectively like here. I the weather is really nice you don’t even need more than the tarp for cover.

  5. this is incredible. i have never seen such a lovely shelter. if only my house was as beautiful as this shelter. i want to marry this shelter.
