Check out Shelters, Shacks and Shanties, a Gutenberg free e-book, originally written and illustrated in 1920 by D.C. Beard.
It has 338 pen and ink drawings, along with instructions for a wide range of shelters, from the simplest and most basic — structures built with nothing but a hatchet — to gradually more elaborate constructions using an axe. It’s addressed to “boys of all ages” and is of special interest to homesteaders or anyone else thinking about putting a simple roof overhead.

A two storey shelter surrounded by large granite boulders and ancient dead trees located on a remote pristine mountain in Mudgee, Australia.
The structure is designed by Casey Brown Architects, has a 3x3m footprint and is made of cooper clad and recycled ironbank. Heavily insulated the shelter offers a lounge area with a small kitchen, a sleeping loft for two and a separate WC nearby. Water can be collected on the roof of the tower and stored in a tank located to the south.
