In this video we build a primitive survival shelter that is a raised bed in the shape of a triangle with no tools or cordage. The bed is approximately 4 feet off the ground and would be great for wet weather conditions. We start in a cedar thick woodland where we can utilize dead cedar trees. The trees are easy to work with because they are close together with lots of branches to stack other trees against. This type of bio-region is perfect for building bushcraft shelters. We layer the platform with loose cross trees allowing us to sit and lay comfortably.
We also build a roof with bracing that allows us to layer tree bark and moss on so that it will provide some protection from rain.
The lower part of the shelter is blocked from the back by a simple lean-to and allows for stacking wood or storage so that our wood will not get wet.
We use hand drill friction fire to start a fire that will sit out on the side of the shelter. The step up or ladder in the front of the shelter is sturdy and allows easy access to the raised bed in the shape of a triangle.
This primitive survival shelter only took about 4 hours to complete and would be ideal for two or three nights.
