Previously I had built a dog house for my dog Jaxx whilst I was building the hunting tower. It worked great to begin with but it ended up taking too much space in the camp. So as I am soon going to build the wood roof which will link up with the super shelter, I decided that I would still like an area where my dog can sleep. So I use wood that I scavenged from around the forest to build a small primitive dog shelter. This particular shelter is similar to my small lean to which I built in a previous camp update episode.
Unfortunately, the bugs are starting to get too much in this woodland, with mosquito’s and giant southern wood ants becoming a big problem. I will leave it a few weeks now until I begin work on the foundations for the roof of the shelter and then look at what material I will use to cover the roof. It’s been a great adventure building this bushcraft camp. There are constant ideas going around in my head of how I want to change the layout and use different materials and build different structures. Either way, it’s been a useful area for me to learn bushcraft and survival skills, and I hope to practice more primitive technology at this camp site. During the summer months, it can be difficult doing solo overnight camps at this shelter. So I will probably wait until the cooler Autumn months or for a colder summer night to camp alone in the forest. I feel my skills at building, diy and bushcraft have developed significantly since starting this project. Building the hunting tower was probably the hardest build, but I overcame the obstacles and it is still standing today. I have loved creating the bushcraft camp update series and I am looking forward to starting work on Bushcraft Camp Update 15 really soon. Thanks for watching.
