Icon I hope these sites will yield a lot of good info to Members.
Maybe it's time to print out a lot of information and tuck it away for future use.

This site has simple instructions on how to build a shelter if you have no place to stay
just stuck out there. After the crossing of Planet X or whatever event. Bring stuck without shelter could happen.
Also it could be when you are travelling between sites or going somewhere to barter etc. or look for
someone. I will be posting more on handmade shelter.  Do any Members have ideas on putting up makeshift shelters?

On it's face Barb it's pretty much a standard shelter. One could place the branches against a tree trunk for added support. However. If you are in the after times and wandering about on the barter trail, I would think that you'd be better prepared shelter wise with at least a tarp. These shelters, it seems to me, are for when you have virtually nothing but the clothes on your back. Question: how do you get the branches off the trees?


Hey Bill,
it's understood - these primitive shelters are for people who managed to survive but have not much of anything. I can think of several different scenarios which would produce that result, and it would be pretty bleak.
Of course it would be much better to have a tarp. If the people at least have a mountain pack, tarps, hatchets knives small cookstove apparatus, matches water, etc. it will be a lot better.  :)

Site: http://www.simondale.net/house/index.htm   
"A low-impact woodlands home."
The Hobbit House
for under 10,000 USD, approximately.
Posting this site also here:

Building "hobbit houses" in "The Aftertime" is probably a good idea.
I do (not) feel this particular house plan would hold up to radical earth changes fires etc. This should be fine when the earth settles down, and any fires are over. Note: In previous posts I have recommended storing wood branches from local trees as well as lumber, and separately live trees, in a container on survival land


Site: http://www.simondale.net/house/index.htm   
"You are looking at pictures of a house I built for our family in Wales. It was built by myself and my father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends. 4 months after starting we were moved in and cosy. I estimate 1000-1500 man hours and £3000 put in to this point. Not really so much in house buying terms (roughly £60/sq m excluding labour).

The house was built with maximum regard for the environment and by reciprocation gives us a unique opportunity to live close to nature. Being your own (have a go) architect is a lot of fun and allows you to create and enjoy something which is part of yourself and the land rather than, at worst, a mass produced box designed for maximum profit and convenience of the construction industry. Building from natural materials does away with producers profits and the cocktail of carcinogenic poisons that fill most modern buildings."

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share this site   http://readynutrition.com/ .Tess Pennington created the site to help everyone and anyone be prepared for any disaster that may happen.  The info is clear and concise and her articles are informative as well as witty.  She covers everything from your first survival stock up shopping list,to water storage and purification, to at home denistry.  There are pages of info on just about anything you need.  One of my favorites is The 100 things that will disappear first in a disaster, it helped me tweek my list of items I thought necessary to have on hand. 
I hope this is helpful to all, have a good evening,

Leah & Tamie
