I love to sleep in the open air near a fire.
It is possible to realize with Whelen's lean-to.
I determine to make a mine.
I think Mr.Whelen was a big man.
The original size is too big to me.
I reduce the scale with a paper model.
The ratio of awning is reduced, too.
I am grappling with a heap of cotton fabric.
It takes two whole days to finish this work.
Detail 1 : eyelets reinforced

Field installation :
There are lack of place its backside.
The ground sheet is 220cm long.
Its height is 140cm.
8 Velcros are installed for aluminum foil.
A lantern hanger...

It is cozy size to one person.
I'm contented with it.
My props look more ease in this shelter.
