This Survivalist Demonstrates How To Build A Shelter In ANY Environment!

There is something very special about living among nature. And, fortunately, there are a number of clever ways to make those long nights in the wilderness a bit more comfortable, like with these amazing high-tech tents.

But what if you’re interested in roughing it? Like really, really roughing it? Some outdoor enthusiasts have found ways to use only tools found in nature to create shelter, like this wilderness whiz did in the U.K. Kevin Langan started a project on his blog entitled 100 Wild Huts, where he is attempting to build 100 small survival shelters, spending the night inside of each. For the construction of his shelters, Kevin is determined to only use natural resources and a small hatchet. Scroll through the photos below to see just how creative and varied these wild huts truly are. Have you ever wanted to rough it in the wilderness? Let us know in the comments! 100 Wild Huts

The 100 Wild Huts project began in part so that other outdoor enthusiasts might learn how to
create their own survival shelters.

By using only natural building materials, Kevin hopes to “find a true type of contentment down
amongst the moss and mud.”

100 Wild Huts

Kevin always begins each shelter by foraging for supplies — whatever pieces of wood,
branches, and plants that he can find.

Following along 3D designs that he drafts out beforehand, Kevin and his friends start each of
the structures using their gathered wood.

100 Wild Huts

For this hut, they used pieces of leaves to help hold the wood frame of the shelter together.

They added ferns for extra coverage, and the shelter was finished with two bunks installed within.

The hut had enough space for Kevin and his two friends to sleep safely and securely.

Kevin even shared that a group of schoolchildren later happened upon the structure in
the woods after it had been left behind.

100 Wild Huts

Kevin’s huts have taken on a variety of shapes and forms.

He created this hut using the idea of an old lookout, situated in what is thought to be
the oldest living oak woodland in Scotland.

100 Wild Huts

For this shelter, he aimed to create a geometrically designed hut from twigs and sticks.
He built the structure in the middle of a snowstorm, using conifer branches to keep in the
warmth and block the wind.

Kevin chose to erect this wild hut in an area of land that was being cleared for new
construction work. He was able to use recently felled trees, creating a
wonderful “last memory” in a formerly beloved piece of nature.

100 Wild Huts

This “urban hut” was built in a small patch of trees in a slightly dangerous area in
Glasgow, near a local soccer stadium.

Kevin built this triangular A-frame structure on Kinnoull Hill in Perth, near some
crumbling historical structures.

To create this cozy hut, he used a tree as the basis for the structure, adding fallen
branches to keep out the elements.

100 Wild Huts

This pyramidal, three-person hut was built near pre-WWI concrete bunkers. The fern
covering helped keep the hut warm overnight in the near-freezing weather.

100 Wild Huts

The design idea behind this hut was a four-poster canopy bed. It was built in a
forest nearby an abandoned milling town in Scotland.

Using a pile of abandoned cut stone on an old farm, Kevin built a horseshoe-shaped
wall with a leaf roof covering.

100 Wild Huts

Using driftwood and kelp, Kevin created this small shelter in the dunes along the
coast of northeast Scotland.

Each of Kevin’s survival shelters is more impressive than the last. His 100 Wild Huts project
is a brilliant way to truly connect with nature.
