This weekend, I levelled the ground for the Wedgeblock shelter prototype by laying the gravel foundation. The scrap door are forming a straight edge on the lower side for the gravel.

Time spent 5 hrs

Tues Day 2 Almost half the first layer of the floor laid. Its made of scrap composite doors. With another layer on top, this will act as a platforrm for different shelter designs

I posted a thread on this design to the Hexayurt forum. 

 Dylan kindly put it into a sketch up model,  & suggested the simpler hexayurt type roof design as this has the advantage of an overhang for rain to drain off.  I suggested window &  air vent additions to the underside.
