Best lean-to design yet!
by: Will

I've seen quite a few lean-to designs, but the all lacked something: heat efficiency. They all just left gaps and open spaces, both bad ideas for shelters. This one utilizes the tree, however, to insulate you, and seems like it would work better.

waterproof
by: Anonymous

When making a lean-to or any other shelter that uses green tree branches to waterproof it. Start from the bottom of the frame of the shelter and move up so the water will drain off of the roof instead of leaking in.

Always use what the nature can offer to build your shelter. Spruces are the best trees for shelter.
