Bushcraft Camp - Destroying Structures ready for Wood Roof Shelter Build

  • Published on Jun 22, 2018
  • I head to my bushcraft camp in the woods to destroy some structures and make space for the big wood roof build which will be in Bushcraft Camp Update 15. Building the roof is a big project, so it will need time to plan for resources. First I will need to build a log frame, and then thinking about roofing materials. In this video I decided to destroy the dog house and small log store inside the camp. It was taking up too much space inside. I also aim to take down the tiki kitchen which was built in Camp Update 12. This will give me more space to work with when building the roof. The super shelter lean-to is still going strong and is now my primary sleeping area. The small lean-to is a little too small, but I have still done an overnight or two in it and it works fine. It's completely dry under the tarp and moss so I can store any leftover timber in here.
    I would like to take down a few perimeter walls to allow more air flow into the fire pit of the camp. So despite taking down a few structures, the bushcraft camp will still have: Hunting Tower with Ladder, Primary Lean to shelter, secondary lean to shelter, a fire pit, wood saw horse, log chopping area and a few perimeter walls. It's been a great adventure so far with many lessons learned along the way, I hope you guys enjoy this one and be sure to subscribe and hit the bell notification to get notified when I next upload! Cheers - Mike

    I like how you are always improving and building better ideas for the shelter, but lets face it it's just a cool fort in the woods.

    Knowing how to build a permanent shelter is invaluable. If disaster occured you could keep you and yours comfortable. Don't listen to others. Go for it!!! JJ

    If people who complain about what you do just aren't paying attention. I have never seen you kill a tree. I so enjoy what you do love watching, keep you the good work Mike, Dad and Dustin to. Why is You Tube making a fuss while they constantly interrupt videos with political garbage

    All I can see is a man, and sometimes his dad, having fun in the woods, building a useful camp with reclaimed materials. Dead fallen trees would eventually rot, break apart, and become soil. Now, you have a camp that can protect you from the elements, watch nature, and hunt when its in season. You have permission to be there, you're not putting a strain on the environment around you, and not leaving anything behind that nature can't take care of on its own. That is a lifestyle that is completely opposite of city dwellers, who leave garbage anywhere, pile up plastic in landfills (local issue) burn tires for fuel in concrete plants (but told better then coal), and continue to 'develop civilization'.
    I prefer your lifestyle of the outdoors compared to mine. So, the only negative thing I can think of is that I'm a bit jealous of how close you can get to an almost completely basic, and non invasive life. Land is my issue, but its not a dream. Thanks to your videos, its now a goal.

    teaching is harder mate so dont complain about doing what you love! I dont think youtube or any sites should monetise anything, love goes out of it and turns into how many likes or views. Yawn.

    27:00 ... there will be wolves for you to deal with in the decades to come. Scotland and England have a program going to try and re-introduce timber and grey wolves to the UK from Canada. It's nothing to worry about though! Wolves are wild dogs for the most part and as such are very curious. That's as close as they'll get to people in the wild so not to worry!

    Is this allowed there? Did he bought the land or is it just allowed? In my country you can forget this.

    If you are worried about how a wood roof will deal with smoke just build it with an opening above the fire pit.

    I noticed the gloves you are using. Just a recommendation on a brand for gloves. Caiman gloves are some of the best gloves at affordable prices I have ever used. This company makes gloves for all situations. I am an iron worker in the U.S. and these gloves last me the longest. Wouldn’t imagine them being any less reliable for your use. Side note: love the bag, what kind and how may I get one.

    also me thinks you need a camp stripper pole. im sure its been said before, seeing as how youve had 'every comment under the sun' but think of the engineering challenge. how deep would you have to sink that pile? the camp needs some strippers. its always so somber there. maybe theres a collab coming. do strippers have youtube channels?


    Why don't some people just mind their own business, do they come here just to criticize or bully? My God, what a pity they think that way. Obviously they need to be educated on dead wood, those people don't know what they're talking about, man they need to get a life. Sorry about RU-clip's policies, I know all about it ,I was a publisher with Amazon, no money there, unless you have a store, three years deep into it, I eventually gave up, however I'm getting on in age, it was stress I wasn't willing to take. I learnt a lot from it all, good experience over all. Cheerios!

    You could somehow remove a couple of logs at the bottom or make a cutout in the rear wall of the wood store so you can access the wood from inside the camp
