Land Ho

Keeping our beach hut building skills up to date we decided to make a quick little shelter from an incoming storm. Scavenging materials is much easier when the islands don't get any visitors.
Proper site selection has to do with gauging the tides and picking a spot where you have to move as little materials as possible.
We built a waist high stone wall for the front and went with classic A frame style. Even lucked out with finding a 6' pallet for the floor!
The entrance was in back and the roof was actually quite nice. If one wanted to stay an hour to work lacing in spruce branches, it would have made a liveable shelter until winter arrived.
