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.

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.

Always impressive in many ways. Thanks PT. Never knew about captions being available until reading the comments of this video. They enhance the experience of watching this amazing guy. Like for getting the grass. I wondered how far away it was and what type of effort he goes through for the grass and even the piles of rocks he has around. The caption about the grass was: “Grass only grows high in the mountain, an hour round trip to get a bundle of thatch”.

To say this is boring, well indeed it is But to say this is unique. Also indeed it is He shows us how to make simple things from scratch Many people do that thing also from scratch, and many of it show with more unexpected, often ubiqutous way to present it But often, silence and sense of humble, although boring, is the best thing to be done Especially doing anything that related to nature and wilderness Rarely something mix something good and bad, and mix it into a good thing I believe word "uniquely boring" is good thing And i'm sure this channel show us most of it Make sense if almost 10 million people followed this And i hope it will increase

serious question: why not just put dirt on top and plant grass on top instead of harvesting it and tying it down?

Huge amount of weight, and the grass would grow vertically and not shed rain, then the roof would leak mud

Fair amount of reused footage in this video, but I'm still okay with that. The grass cutting footage and the shots of the yams with the vines and stick at the end, in particular. Still good.
