Primitive Technology: Wattle and Daub Hut
I developed this hut in the bush using naturally occurring products 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 developed 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 products used in the hut were wood for the frame, vine and legal representative walking stick for lashings and mud for walls. Broad leaves were at first utilized as thatch which worked well for about four months prior to beginning to rot. The roofing was then covered with sheets of paper bark which showed to be a much better roofing material (* peeling the outer layer of bark does not kill this types of tree). An external fireplace and chimney were likewise developed to reduce smoke inside. The hut is a little yet comfy shelter and offers space to shop tools and products from the weather condition. The whole hut took 9 months from start to complete. But it just took 1 Month of real work (I abandoned it for a few months prior to including bark roof, chimney and additional daub ).
I have no face book page. Be careful of phony pages.
