Primitive Technology: Wattle and Daub Hut
Primitive Technology Wattle and Daub Hut

Follow by Email
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 walls. 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 (*peeling the outer layer of bark does not kill this species of tree). 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. The whole hut took 9 months from start to finish. But it only took 30 days of actual work (I abandoned it for a few months before adding bark roof, chimney and extra daub ).

yung phoenix : You know why his videos are so relaxing, he doesn't run his mouth 80% of the video like most poeple. Or spends 5 minutes explaining what they are gonna do, and then talk more while they are at it. Also the way he records and edits the video. , Its plain and simple yet you can sense how he actually enjoys what he is doing. You pick up on the energy of people in videos too you know. That's why videos of narcissistic teenagers blabbing on about random shit they think is so relevant leaves you feeling agitated and spaced out. Watching him leaves you calm and centered.
