we built stick rooms take sticks or limbs all the same length and stack with clay between rows after you built a circular wall lower at one side than the other you covered the end wood with a layer of mud in and out with a 2 foot doorway you had to turn sideways to get in or out a tarp with cut wood logs tied to the grommets leaving a opening to allow the smoke to go out and a blanket thrown over the door way kept the insects rain if it came out and wind off and the heat in about 10 foot in diameter. Slept 3 people you could stack thorn bushes and limbs with thorns around and the critters would leave you alone. when you left it stacked a bunch thorns in front or, you may have to re-inhabit after a scrap with the new squatters a good smoking got out the bees wasps and spiders before you move in. use a drag to move mud up from the river. I have seen them made from mud and grass bricks mixed with some wood ash using a wood form.
