How To Build A Primitive Wattle And Daub Survival Hut From Scratch


In the following video you will see how one person built this wattle and daub hut starting from scratch . It was built from naturally occurring materials and primitive tools.

This 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.

The hut comes complete with a bed that takes up less than half the hut. What’s interesting to note is that only primitive  tools were used such as a stone hand axe to chop wood, fire sticks to make fire,
a digging stick for digging and clay pots to carry the water.

You’ll see hut is a small yet comfortable shelter and provides room to store tools and materials out of the weather. Watch the video now to see more about this wattle and daub hut.

    You know,this is good stuff hard to impress but ill give this props.there is this thing called earth bags,fema uses it in disaster shelters for more reasons that i can list.if added to this hut,it would make a very permanant home.done right it will be was to heat and cool as I will be insulated as version is a difrant disign but basicly the same adding earth bags and what’s known as wood cob to bulster its strength and durability as well as bags can stop .50 cal rounds,and can be made in improvised situations,just like this adobe,and wood cob.a sand bag home made like this a while back was hit with a truck.barely broke the adobe skin.that was structural part is all the methods are’dirt’ cheap.literally.I like this.this is the stuff we need more of.keep it comeing

    This guy needs an award.its not often I see somebody truely going bushcraft 100%.this dude is legit.i can’t say how much I appreciate this vid,as its an important step in showing us low tech is still pretty high tech.primitive survival doesn’t have to mean you eat raw road kill and sleep in a muddy ditch.mideval times this was the only way of life.and they had a sophisticated lifestyle and some advanced technology we still use today.true apocalypse living is middle age techniques.they did it then,and lived well,we can do it today,just as well.we just need to learn.keep this stuff going dude,my hats off to you 😊
