here is, in my opinion, what a pretty effective survival shelter looks like:

^in the above video, they cover the 'ti-pi' with brush but i bet you could just get away with wrapping it in a tarp from wal-mart.

i have seen people use small oil-powered stoves in their tents to keep warm rather

anybody who has experienced homelessness - know what the best way to go about winter survival for long periods of time is?

i have done much camping in tents, and i like the "rib cage" construction where you take two "y-sticks" and then one long "pole-like" stick as a ridge-line...filling in the size with sticks to form a 'rib cage'...

in my opinion, if you can construct a "ti-pi" for the winter it would be more effective....if it is big enough you could just have a fire pit in the center, and an opening in the top to make sure smokes goes out

in my opinion, this type of construction would make maybe for a good dog-house, but not good for humans where you need a camp-fire and all that

A lean-to like that isn't meant to be a permanent abode, it's a temporary oh-shit-I-got-stuck-in-the-woods-overnight shelter. FWIW I knew a guy who lived in a teepee year round in upstate NY. I believe it was purchased as a kit.

decided against the primitive "dog-house" style winter shelter because of poisonous spiders in my area like black widows

"lean-to" rather than "dog house" if that's the official name of it, i mean

yeah thanks for the quality response anon... indeed, i am just so accustomed to sleeping in small tents...that's why that construction style is so particular to me

  Back in the late 1980s, I went on a hunting and camping trip with some friends, but when we got to the wilderness we discovered nobody in our group of four brought any tents. Two decided to just sleep in their bags on the ground (they were miserable and got little sleep), but me and another (call him Mr. D) decided to put our Pioneer outdoor skills to use (the Pioneers were the Boy Scouts of the Lutheran Church) and assemble a lean-to shelter of timber. Luckily there was lots of fallen trees and logs strewn around. Just lash a support log between two trees and lay logs at an angle on one side. Pile evergreen boughs on top with more long logs lashed down to keep it together. We even made an elevated bed to keep the bugs and wet away. Build a good campfire in front of the opening (not too close and mind you don't set the overhead branches of the supporting trees alight). Only took about an hour of chopping, sawing and collecting the logs and branches to make it and we only needed to use a spool of twine, an ax and two saws.

  The A-frame is even easier, but mostly just for one person (or an intimate couple).
Building a fire reflector wall behind the campfire is a must (but don't let it catch fire as what recently happened with the terrible wildfire in Northern California).

People who are claustrophobic will not like these.
But picky people make poor survivalists.

Hammocks can be really handy as well, especially if they have a tarp roof and mosquito net walls.
