Step-by-Step Construction of Dubree Huts -1

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.

1. Step One – Find a good location and build the frame. This student found a great spot with lots of material readily available, along with the mainframe from the downed logs.

2. Step Two – Finish the frame and door. She finished piling sticks on for the frame. Almost overkill, but they were there and easy to throw on. Nice door header.

3. Step Three – Cover up the frame. In this case, she used tree bows as the were plenty.

4. Step Four – Put down bedding. More pine bows will work fine here, now climb in, pull the backpack in the doorway and enjoy.

By knowing and following the basic shelter criteria, this student could pick a good spot and build this shelter quickly and easily. We’ll take a look at some more shelters in future posts.
