Part 2 out now! I extended the shelter and built a fireplace. Go check it out at
I`m reuploading this video because I initially used copyright music by accident. I`m actually quite happy about it, the new song fits way better anyways.
Building a bushcraft dugout/ underground shelter alone in the woods.
The small hut built entirely from dead wood features a bed and a bench and is surrounded by a low stone wall.
It`s been an drudgery shoveling away all the soil, clay and small stones and since I only had time on the weekends, it took me almost two months to finish the digging.
I initially planned the shelter to only be about 2 by 1 metres, but later changend my mind to expand towards the back and build a kind of loft with a bed.
For further information check the FAQ in the comments 🙂
I really enjoyed building this shelter. It has been a great opportunity for me to escape from everyday life and the stress I had in school.
Big Thank You to My Self Reliance, TA Outdoors and Joe Robinet for inspiring me to get outside and be creative!
