I've made this before. I insulated it with leaves and it was like a furnace. Good design.

Nice build. But without leaves on the top to provide protection from rain and wind, the shelter is not as useful. Dry leaves should also be placed (if available) on the inside to make a floor.

Put leaves on the sides to insulate it. Good job!
