1. Find a partially wooded area in central North America anywhere between the southern United States and northern Canada. 2. Start by collecting as many large branches of wood as you can. Make sure they are sturdy. 3. Put your large branches into a pile. 4. Walk around your town or city. Look for pieces of plywood or other lumber. 5. Put the plywood and other lumber in a pile next to the large branches pile. 6. Use a piece of plywood or several pieces of other lumber as the floor. Put it down in a flat place that won't be flooded. 7. Form the large branches into a kind of canopy above the floor. Make it look sort of like a teepee. 8. Find a large bucket, and some mud or some dirt and water. 9. Put the mud or the dirt and water into the bucket. 10. Get the mud thick enough by adding more dirt or thin it by adding more water. You will need your mud to be about the consistency of snow after it's been warm for a while, very thick. 11. Add twigs, long grass or other plant material to your mud. 12. Slap handful of mud onto branch teepee. 13. Allow mud to dry. 14. Apply more mud. 15. Keep applying mud until your hut has no holes except for a small opening at the top for ventilation and an opening for you to crawl in and out of. 16. Re-apply mud once or twice a year or as much as necessary.
