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 against the wall you made.
Step 3 – Cover the logs with bark to make them watertight. Remember to build from the bottom up, just like laying shingles.
Step 4 – Lay 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 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.
