This resourceful guide highlights 14 different types of primitive wilderness-style shelters. With detailed instructions on how to build a survival shelter, this valuable guide highlights different regions, including swamps, desert, forests and mountainous terrains.
This guide will help you to determine the type of shelter you should build based on factors such as:
- Does it offer adequate protection from nature’s elements?
- Does the shelter require tools? If so, can improvised tools be an acceptable substitute?
- Depending upon the region, what type of raw materials are nearby?
- How long and how much effort will building a shelter require?
Discover detailed instructions on building several different common types of shelters that can easily be erected in the wilderness. These include:
- Poncho Lean-To – This fail-safe type of shelter requires minimal materials and a short length of time to construct.
- Poncho Tent – With a low, streamlined silhouette, this tent offers valuable protection against the elements.
- Three-Pole Parachute Tepee – Excellent for people who find themselves stranded in the wilderness after a plane crash. With three limbs or poles and a parachute, this teepee takes hardly any time to construct, ideal for people who need to conserve energy due to injuries.
- One-Pole Parachute Teepee – This type of shelter requires slightly more supplies, including a parachute, stakes, pole/limb and needle. The suspension lines from the parachute are used to help contract the lower lateral band, sealing the dangerous elements firmly outside the shelter.
- Swamp Bed – This type of shelter takes advantage of the wilderness’ native qualities, creating an elevated bed.
- Natural Shelters – Natural rock formations, including caves, bushes, crevices and large trees make perfect shelters while allowing minimal effort.
This superb guide details how to build a survival shelter from wreckage supplies, basic equipment and even trains people to spot nature’s natural shelters.
