This thatched dome hut was built on a mountain ridge using only basic tools and materials.

This primitive thatched dome hut was 2.5 m in diameter and 2 m tall. It was constructed from 8 slim saplings 2.75 m long, the thatching material was split palm fronds and vine was used to hold it all together.

You will notice that a stone hand ax was utilized to chop the saplings, and a sharp stone flake was used to cut fronds. The pointed dome profile is half way between a rounded dome and a ti-pi.

This design allows rain to run off and channels smoke efficiently while still giving you quite a bit of room. Digging a moat around the hut allows water to drain away. As a side note sweet potatoes were planted along with taro around the moat to produce food later on.
