This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading.

For this BB, you will set up a short term covered materials storage area for peeled logs, fence posts, metal parts, etc!

Here is a related video:


To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - the supplies you're starting with at the location you're building the storage area
 - part way through building the short term covered materials storage area
 - the completed short term materials storage area

THANKS for taking the extra trouble to video what you did framing this shelter.  It was therapeutic to watch and listen to the natural sounds while you worked, and I learned some things about use of the hatchet for simple building. I also love that you used what you already have to cut costs. I have young box elder trees and even super-big crepe myrtle trunks here in W. TN that are also easy to work with, so might give this a try.
