This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the iron badge in Dimensional Lumber Woodworking.

For this BB, you will build a small, rough porta-cabin on skids!

For more information on skiddable structures:
- Ten Skiddable Structures

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - insulated
  - interior dimension of at least 6.5x11
  - includes a small porch (for one person to sit)
  - at least two windows (that can be opened)
  - door hinges are wood
  - includes an insulated door
  - includes simple bunk beds (possibly as small as “cot size”)
  - no glue
  - no treated wood  
   - no paint

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
 - the wood you're starting with
 - the frame of the skid assembled
 - the construction at several stages of completion
 - the finished project
