Man Builds Tiled Roof Hut Out Of Scratch In The Jungle

Do you think you can survive in the jungle for 100 days without any modern materials or tools with you? First thing you need to do is to create a shelter. This man shows you how he built his own.

An Australian posted a video showing how he created a tiled roof hut using primitive tools that he made himself.  He used a celt stone axe and stone chisel to cut posts and carve wood.  Having a knowledge of pottery-making, he built a small kiln out of mud to make tiles for the roof.  Due to the unpredictable weather, he also made an underfloor heating system to beat the cold surroundings.

The hut has a strong wall because it is made of stones and clay, and provides enough security to be safe from wild animals, especially when asleep at night.

“The finished hut has a swinging door made of sticks.  The inside is dark so I made a torch from tree resin.  A broken tile with resin on it acts as a small lamp producing a lot of light and little smoke.  The end product was a solid little hut that should be fire and rot resistant.  The whole project took 102 days but would have taken 66 days were it not for unseasonal rain.” Uploader Primitive Technology wrote on the video’s caption.
