Helter Skelter Shelter

how to build your own shelter


before you can build a shelter, you have to choose a proper location. the best place to start building would be near a body of water, so that its within quick walking distance. its also good to be in a place on the edge of a forested area and a clearing as not to get lost so easily and to maximize available materials.

The Process:

First: find some branches and prop them up against a large wall-like surface (like a boulder or fallen tree). This makes up the structure of the shelter.

Second: cover the branches with large leaves and available coverings. this will act as insulation and protect from the weather.

Lastly: make another layer of smaller things (moss, tall grass, etc) to prevent any leaks or intrusions in the fort.
