1. Step One – Locate a good spot. Seeing how there weren’t very many trees around, here’s an area with logs and a few sticks to use as a frame and bark for the roofing.
2. Step Two – Build the frame. Logs make a good main frame, and the sticks fill the rest. It’s hard to see, but the roof has a good slope to the left to allow rain to run off.
3. Step Three – Cover the roof with bark using the shingle method.
4. Step Four – Put down some bedding like pine needles or pine bows, make a small doorway and climb in and enjoy.
This shelter was a good example of building in an area with fewer trees and using bark instead of pine bows.
