Simple Shelter




Summer is comming. Are you prepared for those hot days? If you like to spend time outside, and you don`t want to get sunburned there is solution for you.

You will need

  • some boards (how many? it depends on the size you want)
  • 4 wooden posts
  • about 6 metres of textile
  • 2 types of lacquer (it looks better)
  • some piece of land
  • nails and some tools (hammer, saw)

Step 1: Find Some Place

First you have to find unused piece of land (there is no need to own it). Dig 4 holes in to the ground (just make sure they are right-angled) and place the post into.

Step 2: Give It a Shape

Put the boards around the posts, and also place some diagonal boards outside.

Step 3: Finishing

Wrap the textile around the posts and add inner diagonal boards.

Step 4: Enjoy the Shadow

    Hi here's a FYI for you all: ASK BEFORE YOU START SET UP ON LAND YOU DON'T OWN!!
    Sorry to shout, but I feel it is a very important point.
    Most land owners will cheerfully let you set up for free if you ask first, BUT if you don't ask first you are likely to not only find your sweet spot taken down, you also will get barred from using that land.
    Treat everyone like you want to be treated.
