Made an Absolutely AMAZING & COZY FIREPLACE in a Bushcraft DUGOUT – ALONE into WILDERNESS – ASMR

In this video you will see the construction of an amazing and very cozy fireplace from round stones and clay inside my bushcraft dugout shelter.

It may seem that everything was very easy and simple. Took the stones, brought clay from the river, and laid everything neatly and quickly. But everything was much more complicated. The lower part of the fireplace is not complicated. But the middle part – the firebox, and the upper part – the pipe – were very difficult to build.

It was especially difficult to make a semicircular arch of stones, which is the upper part of the fireplace window. And it was also a big problem to lay out the top of the firebox in a semicircle 🙂

But i made it pretty well. True, the skin on my hands was worn off from constant work with rough stones and clay. When rubbed, the effect of sandpaper is obtained. Try getting your hands wet and rubbing them with sandpaper. Gradually, the skin will begin to wear off 🙂
But I survived that too.

The moment with the release of smoke into the dugout turned out to be not entirely successful.
When the pipe was heated, the thrust turned out to be very strong. However, some of the smoke still gets inside the dugout if the fire weakens.
I haven’t been able to figure out the reason for this yet.
Perhaps you need to make a chimney tooth?

However, despite this, if you stoke the fireplace and do not leave the fire for the night, the stones remain warm until the morning!
Great heater 🙂
I checked the temperature and humidity inside the dugout with a thermometer-hygrometer – inside it was warm and dry, but outside it was quite cool and almost 100% humidity.
This is a good result, I think.

I also tried the fireplace in the preparation of various, albeit simple, dishes. I baked a tortilla on the inside wall of fireplace, baked a lingonberry pie, cooked a baked potato. Very convenient and most importantly delicious!

Also, I made a cellar in a dugout for food storage. The temperature there turned out to be much lower than in the heated dugout. This is good.

And to add some daylight without opening the door, I removed some logs from the front wall and made a window there that is covered with floating poles tied with rope.

Finally, a mattress was made from moss and canvas bags. This will give more comfort for spending the night and add warmth from below.

Stay safe & thank you for watching!
