I built a wigwam in the woods behind my last house (build along part 1 and 2) Unfortunately we had to move last summer.
I am planning to build a tipi shelter, something like what your describing, as there is no shortage of untouched forest out here LOL!!! I have the area picked out but will wait till the snows gone before i pick the final "spot". I cant wait to see what you do and how! I am sure it will give me ideas and motivation. So, keep at it and take lots of pics. i will be watching this post closely. hopefully we will have an update Saturday evening! thanks
