Note that this shelter incorporates
the roots from a fallen tree. This serves to help support the
shelter, making it stronger. As well, it reduces the amount of
material needed to construct the shelter.

The construction of an entranceway can
be the most difficult part of building a debris hut, in terms of
deciding how to construct it.

Note that this is a fairly large debris shelter. It could
therefore be used for longer term use. It would also fit more people
than a one-person low-to-the-ground type.
More bodies inside means more body heat to provide warmth. It
also means there's more space to heat.
