Mud houses have a significant cultural, social and environmental impact on the people who live in them. They are built with mud bricks and become homes for more than a year. These mud houses use sustainable technologies such as solar power and rainwater to work as efficient homes with low carbon emissions.
Mud houses are dwellings that are built entirely out of mud. The walls, roof and floors of the house are all made from compacted mud or clay which is shaped into a specific shape over a period of time. These houses were originally built by poor families whose main source of income was farming, but the design proved very successful in areas where there were more rainfalls than grasslands .

Mud houses are homes that were built by building a mud wall around it and then constructing a roof out of palm leaves. The walls consist of layers of mud, woven together by tying them together with ropes or string. It is believed that the walls help to protect against the coldness and humidity in the area. They are usually found in humid climates such as Kenya, South Africa and India where there is a need for better ways to conserve heat during dry weather."

Mud houses are an integral part of the lives of many cultures around the world. The reasons for building these huts vary, but may include that it is easier to construct than stone and mortar structures and there is an abundance of available materials. Structures can be simple or complex, with a variety of roof types and diversity in size, shape and use.
