YouTube Survivor Man Builds A Shelter With His Own Two Hands

  • Do It Yourself

Have you ever seen the T.V. show “Naked and Afraid?” If so, then you know this Survivor Man would absolutely kill it and survive far longer than the 21 days they do. The bro in the video builds a primitive hut using only his bare hands and what is around him. Shit, I would live in this thing! Here’s what he had to say about it:

I built this hut in the bush using naturally occurring materials and primitive tools. The hut is 2m wide and 2m long, the side walls are 1m high and the ridge line (highest point) is 2m high giving a roof angle of 45 degrees. A bed was built inside and it takes up a little less than half the hut. The tools used were a stone hand axe to chop wood, fire sticks to make fire, a digging stick for digging and clay pots to carry water. The materials used in the hut were wood for the frame, vine and lawyer cane for lashings and mud for daubing. Broad leaves were initially used as thatch which worked well for about four months before starting to rot. The roof was then covered with sheets of paper bark which proved to be a better roofing material. An external fireplace and chimney were also built to reduce smoke inside. The hut is a small yet comfortable shelter and provides room to store tools and materials out of the weather.

They should give this guy his own tv show and call it Survivor Man Builds A Shelter and just throw him in strange places on Earth.
