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.

You always cut trees but never make videos by planting them. Your channel does not show sustainability, but you contribute to the destruction of forests. Think about it and do something to regenerate nature.

That's basically a wattle and daub medieval shed right there, just need some whitewashing. Make it a bit bigger and with tiles roof and you got a perfectly fine medieval house.

I work on tow boats on intercoastal waterways and have a 20 days on 10 day off schedule. On my time off, I have become infatuated with primitive survival. My mom has a 47 acre plot in deep east Texas, US; within that plot I have an acre of my own. We have a creek that runs completely through the property with a high embankment, surrounded by the pineywoods, almost just like this. The creek has great clay "tiles" for pottery in mass abundance. I have created a dam and several fish traps within the creek and have been highly successful. Crawfish, minnows, catfish, bluegill, sun perch, and the occasional bass. We do have an open grassy field that I use to collect my thatching, along with a Blackberry patch smack-dab in the middle. We have wild hogs, deer, and all of the other creatures that live in the woods. Flint is plentiful, I do make arrowheads by flint-knapping, along with arrow shafts and bows. I have learned how to do so much, just from watching your Channel. I have subscribed I would like to connect with you on a personal level just to answer some more questions that I have. This is pretty much how I have started to live whenever I have time off from work offshore. It saves me money, it keeps me healthy, it keeps me agile and aware. If anyone is really looking for a good Channel to subscribe to pertaining to primitive survival skills, this is the one.

Nice work as usual. I think making some good flat stone floors for one of your huts would be a good thing to show. Also maybe put in some good drainage channels (rock lined?). As you know Cairns rain is pretty decent.

Interesting to see him struggling a little bit to get the fire going, when it normally seems to effortless. I think that would be me on my best day. I also really appreciated how he just paused for a moment to admire a crab. Crab: Yep, I'm a crab. PT: Carry on.

An amazing amount of skill. Thank you for showing all of us how it is done. I was knapping flint knife blades and spear points decades ago as a teenager but I do have to admit as I get older I appreciate my SAK and Swedish axe. All that cutting with stone tools is WORK.
