Four season tent ideas . Need help

Hello All ,
This is first post so please be patient .
Im trying to build a portable 4 man tent /hootch for winter camping .
Ive already built my wood burning tent stove and I plan on building shelter out of bubble wrap type insulation designed for under slab use(tough) and a bunch of upholstry type material that I have .
Thought about Yert , but that looks like a ton of work .
Oh yes I would like to have it stand alone in case I want to use it for Ice fishing .
Can you post pics on this site?

I and maybe others don't understand what/how you build a tent? More common terminology that I am familiar with is to "purchase a tent", "erect/pitch a tent".

Are you talking about a primitive type of shelter as opposed to a modern, high tech version?

A magazine that I read, which is a diy mag about outdoor skills, is called "BackWoodsman". I'll bet that they would have ideas, and maybe plans.

RiverJoe the only question you asked was whether or not you can post pictures. Did you have a question about tent building or are you just telling us about your project?
