A thatched hut is a warm and wonderful shelter that is waterproof. It can stand up to strong winds, allow for an internal fire, and can be used in the winter. This hut that I built was put up in 2 days, but could have been easily put up in one had I woke up early and took no breaks. The inside was 6 foot tall in the center and about 6 feet in diameter. The first thing is to build a frame out of some bendable saplings.

(The hole was 6-8 inches deep) Opposite saplings were tied together to form the vertical framework.The next step is to attach horizontal saplings to the frame.

These horizontal saplings were each about 18 inches up from the level below, but they could be larger or smaller depending on how tall the grass is that you are working with. I left a gap in the bottom horizontal level between two vertical saplings for my door. ...
