How to build a A-Frame Shelter

The A-frame provides more shelter from rain than a single lean-to. It does require many pieces of wood.
Start by finding a tree with a forked branch that is 3 to 4 feet above the base of the trunk and break away any other branches that may injure you or might hamper the construction of your shelter.
You'll need to find a fallen tree that is about 12 to 15 feet long to act as a ridge pole. Place this tree in to the fork of the support tree so that you form a 30-degree angle between the pole and the ground. In a pinch, you can use a fallen tree that happens to be at a 30 degree angle to the ground or lay a strong ridge pole against a 3 to 4 foot high stump.
As with the lean-to, lay support poles across the ridge pole. This time, you'll be laying them on both sides and at a 60 degree angle to the ground. Support poles need to be long enough to extend above the ridge pole and should be placed about 1 to 1 1/2 feet apart.
Crisscross small branches into the support poles.
Cover the framework with grass, moss, and leaves. Start covering the roof from the bottom and layer the materials. Doing so will prevent rain from coming in to the shelter.
Note that you could make the high part of the shelter higher up off the ground, but you will then need a longer ridge pole to maintain the 30 degree angle. A steeper angle will result in added exposure to rain and wind.
