About This Video:
I built a thatched workshop as an area to do future projects in out of the rain and weather. The structure was a 4 x 4 m square covered with a gabled thatched roof where the lowest point was 2 m above the ground and the highest point was 4 m. This is the largest hut I’ve built to date taking 5 weeks to build. The structure sheds rain quite well and being open and without walls allows smoke to exit without issue.

About Primitive Technology:
Primitive technology is a hobby where you build things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. These are the strict rules: If you want a fire, use a fire stick – An axe, pick up a stone and shape it – A hut, build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without utilizing modern technology. I do not live in the wild, but enjoy building shelter, tools, and more, only utilizing natural materials. To find specific videos, visit my playlist tab for building videos focused on pyrotechnology, shelter, weapons, food & agriculture, tools & machines, and weaving & fiber.

    When the original “primitive” man himself come back into the light after 2 years, I almost thought it was a fake at first. I could believe it. Been sooooo long. Truly first time I have been this excited for a video to pop up and enjoyed every second of it! Glad to have you back man!

    I remember watching these videos way back when, when i first discovered your channel I wanted to do exactly what you did ever since, build primitively and survive that way lol

    Glad to see you back and making videos! Also for anyone in the comment section who is new: He has descriptions of what he is doing in each scene as closed captioning, turn them on by clicking the CC button and get even more depth to his videos, enjoy.

    I honestly remember for a few years watching your uploads not realizing there were closed captions and being totally ok with that, your videos have always been absolutely immersive, captions or not. Very glad to see you back, John!

    • Stefan de Medici says:

      Hang on, what? There’s closed captions? You’ve just blown my mind. Not sure I want them though, loved there’s was no talking, just action.

    • Nick Landsberg says:

    John, you have no idea how awesome it was to get home, light one up, and see you’ve uploaded another video after two years. I felt some real joy. Hope you’re doing well. And even if I have two wait another two years, keep the videos coming. Cheers.

    None of the knock off channels will ever live up to the OG primitive technology. Welcome back ❤

    Would love to see an extended cut. It’s so zen watching and listening. I think people would totally watch a 30 minute version of this.
