The traditional Pech house is simple and functional. Open walls let in cooling breezes. They gather hatched roofing, poles and logs from the surrounding forest.  They sleep in hammocks up off the ground.  River clay is used to construct a table top cooking hearth is constructed of river clay. The farm plot is right out the backdoor.
