The basic Maya structure was the hay
hut, which housed most of the Mayan population. The walls were made of mud or stone and
were covered with wooden poles. These poles were no taller than two meters. On the top of
these sticks, the structure rests and it has another 3.5 to 4.5 meters of height on top.
These sticks hold together the strongly tilted, two-sided hay form.
