It appears that things get a bit easier as you level up and open new perks so you don't have to eat so much or drink so much. Since you have to have a forge to make almost anything for building other than wood, that only leaves a couple other alternatives. Scrap and cobblestone. The cobblestone is p...

By the way JB, you can use the logs to make long ones as they will rotate sideways as well as vertical which allows you to make barriers or walls of logs.
