The photo on the far right is one of the earlier thatch roof, woven 
wall-panels typical of tropical architecture.  Windows fold up, 
bamboo-slat floors admit air to sleeping mats, ladder entry usually 
draws up to (not very well) exclude snakes and rodents---for that you 
need metal cones on all poles, and set the poles in water (any kind of 
oil is better) to keep out insects.)  Water rots the poles.
