Portable debris hut frame possibility Answered

I came up with this idea the other night for a portable frame for a debris hut. I was wonder what others thought of it's possibilities. I won't be able to build something like this for a while due to medical issues. If somebody builds this tell me how it worked please.

in the woods, where there are leaves, there are sticks to make a frame. Your design is probably good for the backyard, where you might have leaves, but no sticks.

It was just a thought I had. perhaps a more semi permanent camp thing maybe. Oh well.

The thought itself is great, especially for hikers in remote areas.

I think if you create a bit more detailed drawings and add some instructions people will still like it ;)

Don't get me wrong, but why would I carry a frame for a hut in a survival situation?

And if I need to build one from scratch I would use materials available at the location.

Doing that iglu style is much easier than to build or carry a wooden frame around.

It's used in survival situations. Use a log frame and pile leaves and other vegetation on top and It keeps you dry and warm. Look up Debris hut on you tube, many videos on their construction.

When you say "debris hut", what do you mean? Do you build it and cover it in rubbish?
