Dwellings used by the Trekkers include Kapstyl, Hartebees and U, H, T, and I plan form mud/rock built and thatched single storied cottages. (See Hartebees, Pioneer.) The first structure to be built once a Trekker had settled in an area was the wagon house, followed by a Kapstyl or Hartebeeshuis. Only when the farm had been established was a proper dwelling constructed.
