Primitive Survival Shelter | No Tools | Raised Platform Bed

In this video we make a primitive survival shelter that is a raised bed with no tools or cordage. The bed is approximately 4 feet off the ground and would be great for wet weather conditions. We start in a cedar thick woodland where we can utilize dead cedar trees. The trees are easy to work with because they are close together with lots of branches to stack other trees against. This type of bio-region is perfect for building bushcraft shelters. We layer the platform with loose cross sticks allowing us to sit and lay comfortably. we use hand drill friction fire to start a fire. We lay the fire on a rock layered with clay found from the creek nearby. This allows us to have a fire up on the platform bed with us. This primitive survival shelter only took one hour to complete and would be ideal for one to two nights. With a lean-to of green branches behind it it will protect us from the sun.
