We are really going to do it- live in a wigwam!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We have been planning on doing this for years and this summer it is really going to happen. We are building a Native American primitive house and living in it whenever we feel like getting away from the grid. So excited and I want to post updates to our buildings as soon as I take pics. We are using all primitive materials including homemade cordage to lash the polls. More to come...

Good for you!!  How are you water proofing the roof?  I hope you post pics soon.  My partner is trying to convince me to do this;) Would love to hear your story and how it goes! Do you have little ones?  Good Luck! Have fun;)

The roof is still something dh and I are debating on. He wants cow raw hides then polls/stick, then mounds of debris. I am wanting to buy canvas drop clothes, or use bark slats and cattail mats, and then loads of debris.

Yup I have 2 young kiddos and they are going along with us every step of the way. This is a very good learning experience for them.
