Primitive technology: Abri avec lit

le 27-01-2017 à 21:50 #


I built a bed shed, a small shelter with a sleeping platform built into it. It's quicker to build than a large hut but can be extended later on when materials and time become available. It's not far from the dome shaped grass hut I built earlier.
The hut is 2 m long and 1 m wide. Four posts were hammered into the ground, two 1 m high posts (1.25 m long, 25 cm underground) on the low side and two 2m high posts (2.25m long, 25cm underground) on the high side. Onto this, a sloping rafters was lashed on with fish tail wait-a-while, a spiky palm with a vine like habit. To remove the needle like spikes from the plant, the leaves are pulled off so that the frond sheaths come with them. This made suitable lashings.
Battens were then tied to the rafters and bundles of long grass from the mountainside were collected. Using vine from the bush, the bundles were lashed to the battens starting at the low side and continuing to the top so that the grass would shed rain. Cross bars were lashed to the frame of the shed at each end to support the bed. These were at a height of 1m above the ground.
The bed frame itself was made from four poles (two 2m long and two 75 cm long) lashed together to form a rectangle 1.75m long and 75 cm wide (the ends of the two longer poles extending further to sit on the cross bars in the shed). Lawyer cane was then wrapped length ways over the frame to create horizontal threads. Then more lawyer cane was woven between these threads to form a sort of bed spring net. The bed frame was then put on the cross bars and tested to see if it could hold my weight. A mat I made from woven bark in a previous video was used for bedding and a bunch of grass for a pillow. In a rainstorm it was possible to make a fire in the space under the bed.
This structure is quick and easy to build. The bed is 1 m above the ground and provides plenty of area beneath to store fire wood and tools out of the rain as well as a place to sit and make things. The bed is comfortable and keeps the occupant off the ground away from ground dwelling creatures at night. The smoke coming up from the fire keeps mosquitoes away while providing heat and light reflected back from the roof. In fine weather the fire can be placed in front of the shed in the open while during rain the fire can be kept under the shelter to keep it dry. If room is needed to stand up the bed can be folded up against the roof and tied to it using cordage.
This shed is literally one half of the standard rectilinear hut I usually build (2m x2m floor plan, 2m tall ridge line and 1 m high side walls e.g. from wattle and daub hut and tiled hut videos) and was built to be upgradeable. Later, the other side of the roof could be added on and then walls of some kind built around the frame to form a full hut.

ça peut etre parfois un choix entre s’imprégner de fumée ou se faire bouffer par les arthropodes
Ce qui compte c'est que les flammes soient suffisamment bas

re
et la fumée pleine de microparticules (sujet à la mode) qu'en fais tu, moi l'odeur m'en est difficilement supportable.

avec 50 moustiques au decimetre cube , je préfère la fumée et ses micro particules
sujet à la mode les micro-particules..
Les pokémons aussi etaient à la mode jusqu'il y a peu..

Soyons honnête, J'ai jamais imaginé faire ce genre d'abri , et pour cause, j'ai pas le gout pour aller me perdre dans des bourbiers pareils
Par contre (de mémoire) je me suis vu au moins 2 fois en train de me réfugier au milieu d'un bain de fumée, venant d'un feu fait exprès.
Quand les oreilles la bouche et le nez sont obstrués par des insectes volants, on se fiche bien des micro-particules qui déclenchent les detecteurs de pollution dont on a rabaissé les seuils pour que la pollution fasse tout a coup son apparition depuis peu.
