The actual physical construction of the hut should take place in an urban setting where volunteer labour can be utilized. Once completed the hut is transported by truck to the nearest road end, and then helicopter airlifted to site in parts onto a pre prepared steel frame foundation and bolted together.

All materials should be of a very high standard and be aimed towards minimum maintenance and maximum life span. The interior should be well lit via double glazed glass windows. A water tank should collect rain water. There should be no provision for solar lighting or gas cooking. The provision of a toilet should be decided based on DoC policy, i.e. if environmental impact is minimal then no toilet is required.
