Parliament Camp

The cabin in the woods.

Permission was fully granted from the landowner to use, camp and build in the woodland, and to publicise images of the woodland.

Where The Name "Parliament" Came From

The name "Parliament" refers to the rookery of birds that sit in the trees near the camp throughout the day. A rookery of birds is known as a parliament of birds.

Why The Cabin Was Built

Our last camp, Camp Fox, was destroyed by thunderstorms at the beginning of 2022, so we decided to build a log cabin in another secret location.

The Cabin Project - Timeline

Below are some photographs showing how the cabin has shaped up over the months.

Note that photos were only taken from the point that the extension/2nd part was built. The main part was not documented as we didn't know how far we'd take it.

October 2022

We split up some pallets and screwed them together to create an extension coming from the front, extending the cabin to be 18 foot long.

Extension Walls and Floor

The extension walls are 7 inches thick with insulation inside.

The cabin is 8 foot wide.
