Houses are usually made of thatch roofs and split bamboo walls, woven into various patterns. This diamond pattern is the most difficult to construct and the least common. Houses made this way usually last several years before people decide to re-build. A few houses of more permanent materials, concrete and galvanized iron, have recently been introduced into Mewun villages.
