These pet-friendly huts come in many forms. They are most commonly made of straw, wood, snow, stone, grass, palm leaves, ice, branches, hides, or fabric. A wide variety of materials are used, and they are located in the environments that those materials are specific for. Huts are similar to bungalows but with a more rugged and primitive feel to them. They are typically used seasonally, but in the olden days, huts were permanent dwellings for many individuals—especially within a plethora of nomadic cultures. Some of their huts were transportable, so they could take their home along no matter where the winds took them.
