If there was one skill all survivalists and outdoor enthusiasts should learn it is about shelter building.

We're not talking about temporary shelters made from everyday items either, we're talking about structures made from wood.

That's why we are sharing a cool video from Metaspencer, where he shows us how to build a small wood shelter from scratch.

This video shows the step-by-step process of building a wood shelter complete with a foundation and roof. It's the kind of structure you can build anywhere there is a flat ground, but you will need to keep the platform raised from the ground with a flat rock or two on each corner.

    Yes, but living off the grid ( survival) is making use of what is available. It is not the easiest thing to do always. Making your own shakes for a roof. Building walls with what you can to get out of the elements. Finding the right material for a floor or walk way for safety year round. How to prepare or get clean water. Shelter is a main concern. You never know what you can do till you are there.
