Hermitical,its very popular here among bird / moose hunters.
I first saw that pattern in Nalle Corranders book, and I've been intrigued ever since. I often erect my 3x3 m tarp in "the same" configuration, but the shelter looks a bit open, more vulnerable to rain comming in. A real problem, or not?

Or should I get a Vihe 1 lean-to for the mosquito protection instead? Will they survive small fires (cooking fire in a firebox) under the awning?

That ws the actual question, yes. That silly bonfires would do it is a given, but a plain lean-to with a free hanging mosquito net (I don't like zippers, so I'd rather add one to the non-net one myself; sewn in on top, long enough to be tucked in under mats to keep a reasonablre level of tightness) looks like a good pick.

One like that,with removable flyscreen is under work here.so you can sleep with the "door-flap" raised open,and still be safe from those little flyin satans ambassadors,and remove it easily when not needed.

My plan was to either sew the netting to a strip of webbing, and then sew a another strip to the tent, and then using either using buttons or satans belly button lint (velcro). Two strips of netting with a wide overlap in the middle. Tie tapes to enable me to roll it up out of the way. A zipper would work, but I dislike them, and it would tend to abrade the fabric more.

Defintely going to order one.
