SHELTER AND HOME BUILDING

Building a Hut with Nature Sense

How to survive in the wild with your own Hut

A hut from Home. Looking at how native people construct and create homes is often eye opening when we compare the modern house with its gadgets, its size and the way it is constructed, often from toxic materials; to the beautiful simplicity and elegant construction of what we may call a temporary shelter. The intrinsic strength and flexibility of the materials we use to construct these family homes are a metaphor for us in the 21st century world. For our own strength and flexibility, our own ‘naturalness’ hidden under layers of conditioning.
