A shack is used to make sleeping shelter to keep down survivor Sleep deprivation. It can be rotated when being built. It is worth noting that survivors may only enter through the door and so the player should use caution when placing next to a cliff or other structure.

Shacks may be set fire to and destroyed through the use of a Molotov Cocktail often carried by looter gangs that periodically attack the players base.

Players will need a Toolbox to build this structure.
