Lean-to Dubree Hut

Lean-to Dubree Hut

Here's a good dubree hut using the lean-to design.

Step 1 - Find a good spot with plenty of material. Notice how there's a nice natural "V" shape notch between these trees to pile some logs for the backside of the lean-to.

Step 2 - Lay logs or lean them up against the wall you made.

Step 3 - Cover the logs with bark to make water tight. Remember to build from the bottom up just like laying shingles.

Step 4 - Lay down some bedding like pine bows and climb in for a good night.

A reflection fire would go nice with this one, we'll talk about those in a later post.

Note: Remember to take a look at the posts on "wilderness survival shelter criteria" and "3 components of a dubree hut" to see all the steps and check if this student followed them.

See you on the trail,
