What is a Grub Hut?

A pit-house (or pithouse) is a building that is partly dug into the ground, and covered by a roof. In archaeology, pit-houses are frequently termed a sunken featured building (SFB) and occasionally (grub-)hut or grubhouse after the German name Grubenhaus and are found in numerous cultures around the world.

In this manner, what is a pit house made out of?

The walls and frame of the pit house were built with logs and sealed (for insulation) with dirt and grasses. The domed roof frame was also made out of wooden poles, and then covered with layers of timber, bark and earth. The entrance into a pit house was usually via a ladder through a hole in the roof.
