“A hut is a temporary shelter built with materials found nearby. It is generally built manually in a natural environment with local materials : branches, leaves, logs, bushes, etc. … Less commonly, it can also be made of materials such as metal (iron), cloth or plastic (sheeting), and be located in an unnatural area such as a backyard or on the water (stilts).

The hut can be used as a place to live or just as a storing place. It can also be a shelter and a camouflage for hunting, fishing or simple observation of wildlife. Besides, building a small hut, at home or in a forest is a playful and cooperative activity for children.”
