One of the basic human needs is shelter. If you were to find yourself lost in the wilderness or desert island without a tent, you would have to build some sort of shelter to protect you from the elements. This diy survival debris shelter, is probably one of the easiest ones to build.

This shelter is designed to imitate your sleeping bag, the only difference is that it can not be carried around. You can build it bigger if you want to, so that you can light a fire inside. It is possible to live in this for several weeks out in the wilderness.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • long center pole
  • two forked pieces of wood
  • leaves
  • pine needles
  • twigs or sticks

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1.

Your first task is to find a long pole, that is at
least two feet longer than you furthest reach.

Step 2.

On one side you support the pole with two other shorter
poles with forks at the end and interlock them.

Step 3.

On the other side you can anchor the main
center pole to the side of a tree.

Step 4.

Then you start placing pieces of wood on either side of
the pole, creating a sort of rib effect.

Step 5.

The last step involves just throwing on anything you
can find on the forest floor, from leaves to small twigs.

The debris acts as a thermal mass and keeps in your body heat. How much debris must you put on your shelter? Well the rule of thumb is that, it should be as thick as the distance up to your elbow. Be patient, the shelter will take time to build, however it will keep you warm.
