In many emergencies, bugging out may not be the best option. Certainly it is not the best choice for every SHTF situation.

However, there may be situations where you need to leave your home or dwelling, get out of the city while you can, and lay low until/if sense ever returns to society.

You Tuber Kevin Coy shows you what may be the lowest cost, least effort way to build a viable survival shelter – which could also have uses for hunting, camping, play, etc.

He’s calling it a “micro-homestead.”

For the millions of Americans who can barely make it to the next paycheck, much less invest in high priced gear, supplies and stocks, it may be much better than nothing at all.

Here’s the set-up he came up with:

Of course, there are many other options, especially for those who have the means to purchase, build and develop more ideal structures and set-ups.

However, at 8×8, this building could likely be built without permit or on-grid approval in most areas, and could at least serve as a temporary structure until your dream getaway is ready to go!

    Why not just purchase a shed? Metal construction would be sturdier, more weatherproof, and a working Faraday cage. Particle board is VERY heavy.

    Check out the equipment for sale so you can make your own.
    AND they do not have to be rounded, panels shaped conventionally
    can be created also.

    This building material has all the makings of a fairly easy to start
    small building. Build the panels locally, ship to be assembled into
    your STURDY energy efficient reasonably priced mini bug out shelter!!!
