Whether these structures functioned as typical domestic houses or as ceremonial structures as defined elsewhere at the site is unclear. Few have attempted to reconstruct what such structures may have looked like, although there is a consensus (based in part on ethnographic analogs) that they likely reflect ephemeral, easily constructed designs.
