    About This Video:
    With the wet season at it's peak, a shelter was needed to keep tools and materials dry as well as providing a dry work-space for future projects. So after some procrastination, I decided on a low roof design. A 2.5 m by 2.5 m hut with a ridge 2 m above the ground and side walls 75 cm high. Upright posts were put in at about 60 cm intervals along the 3 walls. The front was left open as this is more of an open workshop than a dwelling. Grass was collected from high up in the hill as it will not grow in the darker, lowland forest. Carrying the thatch to the hut was the most labor intensive part taking approximately 36 hours over the course of more than a week. The walls were then coated in soft, grey mud from a nearby clearing. The floor was coated in the same material. A large amount of rain fell due to a nearby tropical cyclone passing to the north. Despite this there were only a few leaks (mainly on the ridge line) that were subsequently patched with more grass. A fire was then lit with fire-sticks despite the damp conditions. This was done to help dry the mud walls and floor. The end of the video shows the yam mounds behind the hut doing well from of the torrential rain. The shelter will suffice for the remaining two months of rain that is expected to fall.
    About Primitive Technology:
    Primitive technology is a hobby where you build things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. These are the strict rules: If you want a fire, use a fire stick - An axe, pick up a stone and shape it - A hut, build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without utilizing modern technology. I do not live in the wild, but enjoy building shelter, tools, and more, only utilizing natural materials. To find specific videos, visit my playlist tab for building videos focused on pyrotechnology, shelter, weapons, food & agriculture, tools & machines, and weaving & fiber.

      So when are you going to finish expanding your village? Also the subtitles are the perfect way of describing things in this case. Words would just ruin it all.

    2. Capitan Vlogs

      Please do another clay pottery projects coz I love the way you make some pots without any modern tools and materials like pottery wheel!! Good job by the way!!!! Please do it!!

    3. TheJacksTrades

      For the last 2 years everytime I put my 4 year old daughter to bed she wants to watch your videos. She has been refering to you just as "man building a house" ever since the first video she saw which was I think the tiled roof hut. Both of us love what you do man. Keep up the good work.

      Ok , why do you need 3 months to make one video ? Why other Primitive life DE-newsrs do it every 3 days and not 3 months ?

    27. Owen Naedler

      When you were making the frame, why do you pause and jab the long supports in instead of putting them in gently or without force

      1. M Morrok

        I reckon he does it for maximum depth - so it goes deeper. He's real smart

      2. M Morrok

        I reckon he does it for maximum depth - so it goes in deeper. He's smart.

      I wonder, does he have another person who does most of the camera work with him? His shots are always very impressive when he's doing time skips or giving close ups of details. I imagine he doesn't have another person, which just makes it cooler.
