The Mayan homes were workplaces as well as places to eat and sleep. Their homes usually would take a very long time to make because Mayan people had to collect materials to hold the house and to keep it stable. They used materials such as thatch wood, stone and mud. The Mayans worked hard to make their shelter and they had to make a bed, a fire place and a couch. By Faris
