We host student campers at in the rainy season their tents get soaked inside and out. So we built six of these elevated platforms with oversized roofs to protect them from the rain. They work so well we made two of them into “Glamping Cabins” with added screening and full size beds.
4×4 posts are shaped to receive the bamboo corner posts and bamboo nails with glue are used to connect. All bamboo connections are shaped with a jig saw, drilled and nailed with hand made bamboo nails, then tied together. Regular nails will split the bamboo. It was the first time I worked with bamboo and a fun experience.
The roof material was made from a 2 meter wide tarp material we buy in rolls and attached together with a 4” overlap and contact cement
