Build Your Own Longhouse
Cedar, ash or elm bark was usually used for longhouses. The bark was placed like shingles from bottom to top so rain would run off. There were no windows. Doors were placed at each end. Holes to let smoke from the fires ran down the center of the roof. Shelves ran along the walls. They were used for sleeping and storing things.
