Primitive Technology

Primitive Technology I built this tiled roof covering hut in the bush utilizing just primitive devices and materials. The devices I used have been made in my previous video clips. It needs to be pointed out that I do not live in the wild and that this is just a leisure activity. It ought to be evident to a lot of that this is not a survival sanctuary yet an experiment in primitive building modern technology.
To reduce and carve timber I made use of the celt stone axe and also rock sculpt made in this video. To bring water and make fire I used pots as well as fire sticks made in this video clip. Finally, to store fire timber and dry, unfired floor tiles, I used the wood dropped integrated in this video. Primitive Technology

The wooden frame was constructed with a 2X2m layout and a 2m tall ridge line with 1m high side walls. 6 posts were taken into the ground 0.25 m deep. The 3 straight roof covering beam of lights were affixed to these making use of mortise and tenon joints carved with a stone sculpt. The remainder of the frame was eyelashed along with attorney walking cane strips. The framework guided a little when pushed so later triangular bracing was added to stop this. Likewise when the mud wall was constructed, it covered the articles as well as quit them relocating altogether.

A little kiln was developed of mud from the ground as well as a perforated floor of clay from the creek financial institution. It was just 25 centimeters interior diameter as well as 50 centimeters high. Clay was dug, damaged tiles (from previous sets) were crushed and also included in it as grog as well as it was mixed thoroughly.This clay was pressed into rectangle-shaped moulds made from strips of attorney cane to form tiles. Timber ash prevented the clay adhering to the rock. 20 floor tiles were terminated at a time. 450 flat tiles and 15 bent ridge floor tiles were made with just a couple of damages. 26 firings were performed in all and also the average shooting took about 4 hrs. The terminated ceramic tiles were then linkeded over the straight roofing system battens.

An underfloor heater was built into one side of the hut to work as a sitting/sleeping platform in winter. This was inspired by the Korean Ondol or “warm rock”. A trench was dug as well as covered with level rocks with a firebox at one end as well as a smokeshaft at the various other for draft. The flames travelled under the flooring heating it. After shooting it for some time the rocks stay warm all evening with warmth conducted directly to the resting passenger as well as radiating into the space.

The wall was made from clayey mud as well as rock. A stone footing was put down and over this a wall surface of mud was built. To reduce mud, stones were included right into later wall surface programs. The mud was dug from a pit before the hut as well as left a large hole with a quantity of about 2.5 cubic metres.

The ended up hut has a turning door made from sticks. The in is dark so I made a torch from tree material. A broken floor tile with material on it acts as a small lamp producing a lot of light as well as little smoke. Completion item was a solid little hut, that must be fire as well as rot resistant. The whole job took 102 days however would certainly have taken 66 days were it except unseasonal rainfall. Primitive Technology

+Primitive Technology How well does the tile hold up in high winds?

TheComputec January 7, 2017 at 8:32 pm

I own a home with these hand-made fired clay tiles
The weight of each row of tiles holds the lower rows down. They are not as
snug fitting as an engineered manufactured tile but far better than wood
shingles or felt. In most of the UK for example, homes were made for
hundreds of years with just slivers of slate 10X8″ pinned onto battens.
Seal the gaps around the edges of your roof and this kind of construction
will outlive it’s builder

Why do you burn the holes in the frame? at the joints

David Wang November 12, 2016 at 6:51 pm

Doug DaBest I’m pretty sure that burning makes it easier to make the holes
and it (counterintuitively) hardens the wood.

Branone November 15, 2016 at 11:45 am

Yes, it makes the holes in wood far quicker and more tirelessly. The holes
created this way are also smoother if that makes sense.

last week I got shipwrecked and had to build this took all month to just
find/gather materials and 4 months to build I saw a ship today so maybe I
will build a smokey fire to signal them next month also I think I dug the
pit too deep because it is now full of leeches and mosquitos and dragons
come at night to drink from it and they have bad breath and it makes me
sick up

MrSuperselenio December 11, 2016 at 6:42 pm

Good idea dude, just remember to take a shiton of power banks and
arc/nuclear reactor or some solar panels so you can power up your stuff an
sit down to watch your stuff xD

It depends on how well those 5 people work with each other. Sometimes
teamwork can be detrimental. For example, suppose 1 of those people has
different plans and is unwilling to compromise while the rest are lazy.

Unless there are people trying to kill you/ taking resources/enslaving you

Metrion77 January 4, 2017 at 9:21 am

one person? out in the wild? 90% chance of premature death due to
starvation, poisoning, exposure, dehydration, or animal attack. Another 5%
chance of premature death due to accidents due to terrain or suicide.
Having a partner out in the wild is a huge help because they can help you
back to camp and keep you hydrated and warm if you pass out from illness or
injury. They can also work with you to cut down on time making resources,
making a fire while you cut wood, tending charcoal for water filters while
you bring water up to your base.

Assuming you don’t die within the first year? It depends on the resources
available. Plants that’re good for cordage, plants that are good for wood,
plants that contain resin, sugary plants, fatty animals, clay, iron
deposits, aggressive animal life, weather conditions.

If you had access to iron and copper deposits, wood and clay, you can make
a cast iron crank generator within a couple years. Throw in high quality
silica, sodium carbonate (soda ash), and dolomite for glass and you could
make leyden jar batteries, and a steam powered generator, giving you
electric fans to keep cool for your ten year anniversary.

The description said 102 days, but in ideal conditions (apparently it was
unseasonably rainy) it would take about 66 days.

Agent Squidward 102 days, though he reckoned in ideal conditions, i.e dry
weather you could do it in 66 days roughly.

Could someone explain why this shouldn’t be used as a survival shelter,
says something about it in the description.

I’d probably start with a grass hut and then upgrade myself from there.

inferno gamer January 2, 2017 at 4:02 am

Primitive Technology can you explain to me how did it took you 100 days to
finish the hut whe in the video it looks like you builded it in less than a
day?(sorry im not so good at english)
